Grow. Improve. Volunteer. Poznan, Poland, 2022Olga Petrushko
“Grow. Improve. Volunteer.” is an international training course that was implemented in Poznan from 13th of November till 20th of November.
📚At this training course NGO members, activists and volunteers learned more about humanitarian principles and volunteering work.
🔍During 6 days of collective work, the participants learned about the better ways to respond to challenges and problems, collected useful tools, methods and practices for working with refugees and shared their volunteer experiences.
✍️One of the main goals of the training was to create a space for discussion and finding solutions on how to better and more professionally prepare for possible future waves of Ukrainian refugees that may come in the winter.
🧳During the training course participants had study visits to local organizations in Poznan that are also working with refugees and minority groups (Centrum Integracji Cudzoziemców w Poznaniu, BARKA, Migrant Info Point). Group also visited the reception point for refugees in Poznan, where the participants were able to get acquainted with the specifics of volunteer work from the inside and adopt some ideas of how the help and activities for refugees are organized.
📝By the end of the training course participants created a volunteering tool kit. This material is the quintessence of the knowledge gained at the training and the ideas that came during the exchange of volunteering experience between participants. You can check this material here.
This project was organized by Logos NGO in partnership with ActionAid.
