Want to leave, discover new landscapes, discover another culture, open your horizon? For more than 20 years now, « Enfants de la Paix » ASBL has allowed young people to go on solidarity projects.
In 20 years, no less than 188 young people have left, supervised by the association, for a period of one month in India.
Going on site, it's an unforgettable experience, made of meetings and memories just as unforgettable.
Going with « Enfants de la Paix », is also a preparation, a group work, a journey of several months towards this journey. It is also an important personal investment, before and especially during the stay. And on your return, it is a memory that remains in itself and that changes, certainly how you apprehend life.
The departure for a project is usually scheduled for July. It will be a matter of setting up a site that will have been chosen by the committee of the association.
This site can be the repair of one of our homes, the setting up of a specific project for the children of our homes, a camp « health » etc…
For our types of projects, no special knowledge is required, it is open to all. Accommodation, as well as meals will be made in the home, which allows to share as closely as possible the life of the children of the home
Some excursions are planned with the group during the stay.
A preparation is necessary in order to be able to handle the culture shock and to avoid health problems etc. To better prepare you, the association will accompany you from the end of October until departure. In addition, one or two members of the association will accompany you on site.
During these mandatory activities, the ASBL will present you the Indian culture and some problems very present in India and that could be part of this « cultural shock ». And since the participants often come from different backgrounds and cities, we take pride in what they learn to get to know each other better before living this adventure together.
To attend the workshops it is imperative to attend all the meetings.
New projects are planned. Registration details will be specified here in a timely manner.
