Volunteer

Quote

“Working as a volunteer, I have aimed to develop the confidence of our community especially in their use of English.  Meeting in an informal setting, usually a cafe or at home, on a regular basis, at a time suitable to us both, I have pitched the activities at a level which aims to engage the learner.  Thus, I have worked with Stan, Szymon, Mikolaj, Andzelika, Cornel, Sara and Paulina”

Privilege

Quote

“I thought I knew it all but almost every casework session brings new revelations about the machinations of the various bureaucracies that govern our lives.  It’s privilege to be able to help.  The staff are great to work with even when I steal their desks.”

Great for integration

Quote

“I enjoyed it (almost as much as the children)! Great for integration and a good opportunity for children to learn about another culture. The children were totally engaged by the practical sessions and loved the music. 100% participation” (Teacher)

Fantastic Balance

Quote

The workshop had a fantastic balance of fun and education. It was also creative and inspirational. The style of teaching encouraged the ‘shy’ children to come out of their shell. I would recommend the workshop to other schools because children had fun and learnt about new culture that is not often talked about.” (Teacher)

Misunderstood

Quote

“Excellent opportunity for children to learn practically about another culture. Not only did the children learn more about Roma culture but so did I. It was fun and education for children and adults. … I would recommend this workshop as I feel that this culture is vastly misunderstood and this is the way, which will help to address it.” (Teacher)
