PANDORA: Ricerca di buone pratiche in ambito imprenditoriale femminile

Dal 2016 al 2018 la nostra organizzazione ha sviluppato una ricerca di buone pratiche di imprenditoria al femminile in quattro paesi europei: Italia, Polonia, Inghilterra e Turchia.

Questa ricerca ha avuto l’obiettivo di stimolare una ulteriore riflessione sulla tematica oggetto del progetto: l’empowerment femminile.

Il perché di questa ricerca nasce dalla necessità di supportare un gruppo di 62 donne, con back ground e nazionalità diverse, donne spinte per tanti motivi ai margini della società ad avere una occasione di riscatto.

From July 4 to August 30 I was a volunteer at the Human Rights Youth Organization in Palermo. It was an intense
time that brought me many challenges and constantly pulled me out of my comfort zone. HRYO is a relatively large
organization that always hosts several volunteers as part of European projects. The organization focuses mainly on
popularizing human rights, working with the local community, especially children and youth at risk of economic
exclusion and mafia influences. Mafia still seems to have an impact on the lives of Sicilians. Many things are impossible
or difficult to do for them, even if they are seemingly simple tasks and problems to solve. It was the differences in
mentality and cultures that caused the greatest difficulties for me at first.
As part of the project, I had the opportunity to conduct #letstalkHumanRights meetings with migrants from the
local social club – Ikenga. We also organized English Language Café meetings to jointly learn English, which is extremely
needed in Sicily. Although my project is short-term, I had to learn many words in Italian to communicate with the people
of Palermo in their daily activities. English Language Cafés allows their participants to tame English.
Our colleague Melania working at HRYO on July 15-19 held meetings raising the subject of stereotypes about
gender issues and violence. Although most of us had similar insights, the conversation was extremely important. As part
of the project, we watched a shocking documentary about the female body on Italian television programs. It was very
important to us and left many questions.
From July 29 to July 31, together with scout groups from northern Italy, we cleaned the Terra Franca area. This
is an area confiscated from the Mafia and commissioned a few months ago by HRYO. Ultimately, it is to be a place of a
social garden, where the charges of the organization dealing with youth and young adults from the autism spectrum will
also work.
On August 11-14, we were in Alcamo at the Alcart Festival. As part of the cooperation with the organizers, we
ran an organization stand where we sold materials promoting human rights made by the local artist Monica Dengo, we
presented the #HumanRightsRightHumans exhibition and talked with festival participants and residents of Alcamo as
well as tourists about human rights, our countries, democracy and European community.
The last project that I implemented was the creation of a street library in which, as part of the international
bookcrossing movement, people can exchange books by introducing and extracting them from circulation.
It was sad to me Palermo has a big plastic waste problem. The ecological and environmental awareness
of citizens is low. As part of private conversations, volunteers tried to convince residents to change their habits.
Disposable plastic is distributed everywhere without much thoughts. When we organized a party for volunteers and
interns of other organizations, the most surprised by the lack of plastic cups, which come here at every party were
Italians. The big issue for me was also the frequent use of fireworks. They are here almost every day. Official local shows
lasted over an hour. Although many of us like to look at the color holidays in the sky in Poland, there is quite a lot of
public awareness about the dangers of fireworks. In Italy, this does not cause opposition or outrage yet.
From a perspective of time spent in Palermo, Sicily seems to me African in many aspects. People are different.
More friendly and open, but also much more focused on reputation. They approach the world around them and the

problems they have to deal with differently than I was learned. I regret that my project was largely carried out in
August. It is a month when the city is operating more slowly. Nevertheless, Palermo is worth exploring and there is a lot
of work to be done here still. At the same time, residents are very open to action. However, they need a spark that can
start them. During the time spent in Sicily, I met many wonderful people. This experience changed me forever, made me
aware of my values and showed me many truths.

[:en]Federica, flyed to Bucharest through IRETI project, shares her two-month experience[:]

[:en]Federica spent two months in Bucharest participating in the IRETI project. She did her traineeship in some Romanian organizations focusing on data analysis and communication through social media and learning more about migration and human trafficking. 

 

“I did not know anything about Bucharest, but I was ready to let me surprise by it. And this is what happened. Already in the first week I had fell in love with the city, so familiar to me even if had never been there: in short words, I felt at home. With these positive feelings I started my traineeship experience.

 

Through the IRETI project I had the opportunity to work as a trainee in a Romanian non-governmental organization called Novapolis Association, enhancing my competences in data analysis. It was really stimulating to study data about attitudes and practices of Romanian employers towards migrant employees, as well as to write a report about those data. I could learn more about practices adopted by Romanian employers to integrate migrant workers in the workplace and I understood the importance of social integration of migrants and its positive implications. 

 

My traineeship focused also on communication through social media, in particular Instagram. I was responsible of the IG account of IRETI project, therefore I created and implemented a communication strategy. It was so passionating to create contents and I could discover more about the reality of human trafficking within Europe. For example, over the years 2010-2012 30,146 victims were registered in the 28 EU Member States;  80% of registered victims were female and 69% of victims were trafficked for sexual exploitation. Victims came from EU (the first country is Romania) as well as non-EU countries (the first one is Nigeria). The fact that the highest percentage of internally trafficked victims (victims who are trafficked within their own country of origin) is in Romania struck me a lot and made me know another face of human trafficking, that is internal trafficking. 

 

During my traineeship I had also the opportunity to collect some data regarding social integration of migrants in Romania. This was the most challenging activity among the ones I have done and thanks to it I have understood that collecting data regarding migrants can be difficult for many reasons. For example, lack of a common language between the interviewer and the interviewed is a great obstacle, therefore a questionnaire prepared for data collection should be adapted to the educational background of the interviewed and his/her proficiency level in the language chosen for collecting data; moreover, a questionnaire should not use complicated concepts and/or sentences that could not be understood by the interviewer. I will keep all these considerations in mind next time I interview a migrant or another person, not taking for granted that we have a common educational and language background. 

 

In conclusion, I have acquired two more things after my experience in Bucharest: more knowledge and a new place that I can call “home”! “

[:it]Leggi e lascia! Un nuovo progetto che promuove la lettura a Palermo.[:en]Read and release! A new project promoting reading in Palermo.[:]

[:it]Da mercoledì 28 Agosto, vicino Casa Professa, ci saranno libri disponibili da prendere e leggere gratuitamente come parte del progetto della biblioteca di strada che è una zona di bookcrossing sotto la tutela dell’organizzazione Human Rights Youth Organization (HRYO) in collaborazione con il circolo Arci – Porco Rosso.

La biblioteca di strada (Street Library) è un progetto dei volontari di HRYO per la popolazione di Palermo. Questa biblioteca è un posto magnifico per i libri pubblicati. Lo scopo del progetto è diffondere l’idea di scambio di libri (bookcrossing) da Palermo. Il bookcrossing è definito come “la pratica di lasciare libri in luoghi pubblici per essere raccolti e letti da altri, che poi fanno altrettanto”. Il termine deriva da bookcrossing.com, un club di libri online gratuito che è stato fondato per incoraggiare la pratica, con l’obiettivo di “rendere il mondo intero una biblioteca”.

La “crossing” o lo scambio di libri può assumere forme diverse, tra cui libri a rilascio libero in pubblico, scambi diretti con altri membri dei siti Web o “anelli di libri” in cui i libri viaggiano in un ordine prestabilito per i partecipanti che desiderano leggere un determinato libro.

Le biblioteche di strada (street library) sono una finestra nella mente di una comunità; i libri vanno e vengono. Le persone possono semplicemente andare e prendere ciò che gli interessa; quando hanno finito, possono restituirli alla Biblioteca di strada.

Il luogo individuato da HRYO si trova ad Arci Porco Rosso, a piazza Casa Professa. Se qualcuno ha un libro che pensa possa piacere agli altri, può semplicemente inserirlo nello scaffale della Street Library. Se sei una di quelle persone che vogliono leggere, questa è la cosa che fa per te, quindi divertiti. 

  L’HRYO – Human Rights Youth Organization è un’organizzazione non governativa e non governativa fondata a Palermo nel 2009 con l’obiettivo di rafforzare i diritti umani a livello locale e globale. L’organizzazione lavora con i volontari internazionali e fornisce progetti educativi e di sensibilizzazione per bambini e giovani locali.

L’organizzazione ha sede presso lo Stato Brado, piazzetta di Resuttano 4 – è dove puoi lasciare libri e prendere parte alle attività di organizzazioni come English Language Cafe.

 [:en]From Wednesday the 28th of August, around Casa Professa, there will be books available to take and read for free as part of the street library project being a bookcrossing zone under the care of the Human Rights Youth Organization in cooperation with the Arci circle – Porco Rosso.

Street library is a project by the volunteers from HRYO to the people of Palermo. This library is a beautiful spot for released books. The purpose of the project is to spread the idea of book exchange (bookcrossing) through Palermo. Bookcrossing is defined as “the practice of leaving books in a public places to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise.” The term is derived from bookcrossing.com, a free online book club which was founded to encourage the practice, aiming to “make the whole world a library.” 

The “crossing” or exchanging books may take different forms, including wild-releasing books in public, direct swaps with other members of the websites, or “book rings” in which books travel in a set order to participants who want to read a certain book. 

Street Libraries are a window into the mind of a community; books come and go. People can simply reach in and take what interests them; when they are done, they can return them to the Street Library. 

HRYO spot is located in Arci Porco Rosso around piazza Casa Professa. If anyone has a book that they think others would enjoy, they can just pop it into the shelf of the Street Library. If you are one of those people who wants to read, this is the thing for you, so enjoy.

The HRYO – Human Rights Youth Organization is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded in Palermo in 2009 with the aim to strengthen the human rights at a local and global level. The organization works with international volounteers and provide educational and awareness-building project for local children, youth and young adults. 

Organization is placed in Stato Brado, piazzetta di Resuttano 4 – it’s where you can leave books and take part in the activities of organizations such as English Language Cafe.

[:it]Diamo il via al progetto “E.M.P.O.W.E.R. Youth” [:]

[:it]

I giovani sono attori chiave per la realizzazione della democrazia e di tutti i valori europei e al contempo hanno anche un ruolo cruciale nello sviluppo della loro comunità locale. 

H.R.Y.O. ha recentemente condotto un’indagine sulla condizione dell’educazione civica e politica e l’impegno dei giovani nel contesto locale, all’interno del progetto “U-Civic”. I risultati hanno mostrato uno scenario critico. Vi è una generale sfiducia nei governi e nei politici e una concreta difficoltà nel coinvolgere le nuove generazioni alla partecipazione politica attiva. La situazione è molto più difficile per coloro che vivono nelle periferie o in quartieri difficili, compresi i giovani con minori opportunità, che si sentono sottorappresentati. 
Il progetto “E.M.P.O.W.E.R. Youth” vuole coinvolgere le nuove generazioni attraverso un dialogo strutturato con le istituzioni che permetta di raggiungere i seguenti obiettivi: 

  • migliorare la partecipazione attiva dei giovani nelle comunità locali, nazionali ed europee;
  • rafforzare l’impegno dei giovani in campo politico e nell’elaborazione delle politiche attraverso il dialogo e i meccanismi partecipativi;
  • realizzare la cittadinanza, la democrazia e altri valori europei, promuovere l’inclusione dei giovani con minori opportunità e sensibilizzare sulle opportunità offerte dall’UE;
  • migliorare la fiducia nelle istituzioni.

Il progetto coinvolgerà giovani tra i 16 e i 30 anni provenienti da diversi contesti della provincia di Palermo, inclusi giovani con minori opportunità. Per ogni attività saranno coinvolti rappresentanti delle istituzioni locali e del comune, decisori e ed esperti con una formazione politica e/o accademica.

Il progetto sarà sviluppato in sei incontri che prevedono diverse attività tra cui: brainstorm, discussione con esperti e decisori sui meccanismi politici e le istituzioni, dialogo sulla cittadinanza europea e sulla partecipazione attiva, uso di un toolkit digitale, workshop sul processo di elaborazione delle politiche, SWOT analysis sulle esigenze della comunità locali, la simulazione di un processo decisionale e, infine la presentazione di un’iniziativa dei cittadini.

“E.M.P.O.W.E.R. Youth” permetterà di ridurre la distanza tra i giovani e le istituzioni, accrescere la loro consapevolezza sull’importanza della cittadinanza attiva e sviluppare un pensiero critico sulle questioni politiche lavorando in gruppo e utilizzando differenti metodologie.

Siamo convinti che il progetto possa apportare benefici a lungo termine anche alla comunità locale che sarà incoraggiata a riflettere sul tema attraverso le iniziative in cui i nostri partecipanti saranno coinvolti. 

Il progetto rientra nell’azione chiave 3 ed è co-finanziato dal programma Erasmus +.[:]

[:en]Marcelina’s experience in volunteering in Palermo[:]

[:en]In the summer of 2019 I had a possibility to take part in Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps project in Palermo. My hosting organization was H.R.Y.O. and I really recommend it because I spent two fantastic months, full of good energy, and new experiences.
On the fifth of June I boarded a plane from Poznań to Munich, where I next switched to another plane and after two hours I landed in Palermo.

I had a possibility to help in a lot of fantastic and challenging events. During my first days I helped in a books festival. Our organization prepared some small books with Human Rights articles that we gave to the people (we had Italian and English versions). The event was in botanical garden, so I had also possibility to admire the beautifull nature. There were also a lot of events about literature, music or theater.

The next event was Festival della Paranza. It was implemented through theater and photography workshops for children and teenagers. The 1st part of the festival we prepared in Magione, a beautifull district with a lot of green places, but it has quite difficult history as a place to live. Our participants was very young so sometimes it was difficult to comunicate with them, because of the language, but I loved it so much. Every day we drawed with them play some games and showed some exercises related to appearances in front of the public. In the end we prepared with them a play and show it to their parents. It was fantastic week.

The secound part of festival was photography workshops, with we prepared in Capo, one of the district in Palermo. In this case our participant were quite older, so sometimes we comunicate with them in English. At the beginning we prepared for them some integration games to make a better atmosphere in group, and next we showed them some techniques about making pictures, we did some posters about it, and later we went with our participants to the walk and did some pictures. At the last day there was an exhibition. It was also perfect week and I liked it a lot. I emproved a lot of new things.

I went to the gay pride parade and I enjoyed very much.

I participated to the English Language cafè, prepared by all volunteers of H.R.Y.O. Once, I presented the European Solidarity Corps projects, my project and I shared my experience with the participants.

I took part in a workshop about gender violence. It was a good opportunity to know many things, reflecting on some differences between Italy and Poland and collaborating with the other participants.

I have met a lot of fantastic people from Palermo and from other countries. People of the organization were nice, always smiling and with good energy and full of great ideas.

The experience was fantastic and I suggest everyone to do a volunteering project abroad.
