‘International Voluntary Year in Tanzania’ (INVYT)
INVYT aims to change people´s perception towards other people, and the world and to increase awareness about different cultures. This process of learning changes the individuals´ attitudes and values and also enables them to know themselves better. By demonstrating good praxis we want to show that volunteering makes sense.
The programme has been developing in the light of a 3 partner co-operation: Slezská Diakonie, The church congregation of SECAC in Třinec and LEA in Tanzania.A three-partner meeting took place since January 2013 in order to discuss and design the concept of the programme and agree to the involvement of all the partner organisations.At the end of June a feasibility visit was made to the LEA organization in Tanzania. The representative of Slezská diakonie and the church congregation in Třinec were hosted by LEA. The visit gave an opportunity to get to know the local context. Both partners could discuss the various aspects of a volunteer´s path in details.
During the summer a project application which prepared which was submitted at the beginning of September to the European Commission, EACEA- Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.Our project has been approved in December which enables us to send 2 Czech volunteers for 9 months to ´LEA´.
