Here we are: Emma, Inès, Susana!

Welcome! We are the new H.Y.R.O. volunteers working for the project “Alter 2.0.”, and we will be staying in Palermo for six months. Our backgrounds are pretty different; we have Inès from Orléans, France. She is 23 years old and studied Linguistics in Spanish and English. The next volunteer is Susanna from Lisbon, Portugal; she is 22 years old and she has a degree in Political Sciences. And last but not least, we have Emma from Barcelona, Spain. She is 18 years old and next year she will study Biomedicine in the UK.

As volunteers, we have the opportunity to fill our schedule in whatever way we find most interesting and beneficial to us. Since Naka was still in the first steps of creation, it was in everyone’s interest to follow the initial process. View and participate in decisions as primary as logos, the creation of posters or even the look of the official site. We wanted to help the most at the starting of this organization, which fights for human rights as much as we do and against what we reject, such as discrimination.

Although the being is a slow process and still without results, we find that the observation of the initial problems such as bureaucracy, the lack of knowledge about the organization by the community and the creation of a network are the transversal aspects to all organizations that undoubtedly are interesting to see how they will be surpassed.

Another activity we do is working in Terra Franca. This project is an initiative created by the H.R.Y.O. to transform an old land confiscated by the municipality of Palermo from the Mafia; the territory is located outdoors the city of Palermo and the organization began to take action and perform different activities since January 2019.

The aim of the project itself is to transform this “no man land” into a multi-functional space that all the community/neighborhood can enjoy and take profit of it. Our task as volunteers now is to clean the space from all the natural vegetation and rubbish that has been accumulated by years of inactivity and carelessness. Moreover, to accomplish this purpose, we meet all the three of us every Friday to work a full day in Terra Franca.

Finally, another organization that we have contributed to is 5Atuttotondo, which is a center for adults with autism. The organization works with the enhancement of activities related to creativity and development of their personality.

They help people with autism to learn how to do activities and routines that come from everyday life, such as cutting vegetables, cleaning dishes and basic elements important to surviving alone in our beautiful world.

With the help of the monitor’s, we try to participate as much as possible in these activities. We really love going there because it is something new. Even though we have had previous contact with autistic people, it is very interesting to see how we can work with them and create connections by playing music and doing art workshops.

[:it]Julia shares her first impressions of Palermo[:]

[:it]

Social and language: Our apartment in Palermo houses volunteers from many different countries around Europe, so the common language is English. The girl from Belarus I am going to cooperate with throughout my stay in Palermo arrived on my second day of the introduction week. I’m looking forward to becoming better acquainted with the other volunteers. My first impression is that Sicilians prefer speaking Italian rather than English, so I hope to learn more Italian and I will be taking a language course through Erasmus+ Online Language Support.

 

Sightseeing: Some of us visited the city of Monreale, a bus-ride outside of Palermo. The view from Monreale was absolutely amazing with tall mountains, all the picturesque houses of Palermo and the big blue ocean. We also visited one of the local markets in Palermo. Here my new acquaintances helped me find good bargains on clothes, shoes and electronics. Later we visited one of the many beaches close to Palermo, and the water was lovely. We also visited a nature reserve with a beautiful view over the ocean.

We also went to a demonstration in Cinisi, another city outside of Palermo. This is an yearly gathering which praises Peppino Impastato. He was born in a Mafia family, but turned his back on and worked against them. He was killed by the Mafia fourty years ago. This happening gathers children, youngsters and grown-ups in a long parade with flags, slogans and songs.

As newcomers in Palermo it was very useful to walk around to the different places where we will work, and also get a feeling of local attractions and meetings points. We also tried to take the overcrowded buses, but I prefer walking,

if I have the time.

 

About the work: We got introduced to the H.R.Y.O. office. This office was once upon a time the stable in an aristocrat household, and has been modernized so it functions both as an office for several organizations and as a place for different cultural events. The people who work in the office seem really nice, warm and friendly, so I’m looking forward to get to know them better.

We are also going to work at the Emmaus secondhand shop, the Mercato Solidale, which is a grand and amazing shop with two floors full of big and small secondhand treasures. I am really looking forward to getting to know this shop more, since I’m a big fan of secondhand shops. I also agreed with one of the staff members that I can help him with learning English, while he helps me to learn Italian. I’m also really looking forward to the free, homemade Italian lunch we are going to get at the Mercato Solidale. It lies in walking distance between the apartment and the office/ the secondhand market.

 

Food and drink: When it comes to food have I tasted the local specialty “brioche con gelato”; which is a wheat bun with ice cream. It is delicious and can be compared to an ice-cream kebab. I had also the opportunity to taste cremino caffe which can be compared to an coffee milkshake, and is a special treat for coffee lovers. As a foodie I have also tasted different kinds of pizza, pasta, lasagna, fruit and coffee. And I’m looking forward to taste even more.[:]

[:it]Olga shares her first impressions of Palermo[:]

[:it]Hi everybody! I’m Olga from Minsk, Belarus. At the beginning of May I started my EVS in Italy with two NGOs – HRYO and Emmaus Palermo.

The project is for a year, but because of my passport expiry date I got visa for 355 days. So lifehack #1 for potential EVSers who will apply for visa check your passport expiry date in advance. Your passport have to be valid for 3 months after your coming back home.

The most popular question which I get from my Belarusian friends “What are you doing there?”. Okay, guys, l will explain.

HRYO – Human rights youth organization works with non-formal human rights education. They arrange different events to promote ideas of human rights among youngsters, especially they are focused on unprivileged social groups. So I am going to help them to find means of human rights promotion.

Emmaus Palermo – is a community of people who work in a charity shop which is in the outskirts of Palermo. There are about of 10 people in the organization. Some of them also live together in the house which is out of the city. There is a tradition in the shop – every day at 1 a.m. we have a lunch together. The shop is very big and on the 3rd floor there is a kitten, so we eat homemade food. I really feel at home there.

In Belarus I have been volunteering at a couple of organizations for 5 years. The topics were – homeless animals, veganism, human rights. So I decided to try myself in international volunteering. I found out about some programs and made decision that EVS is the best one. I was looking for a project on the EVS portal. Actually it took me a year to get to the project. There are some reasons for it. First, I was not looking for an opportunity to live abroad for a year, but wanted to upgrade my skills for NGO work to bring more benefit to my organization when I come back. And the second reason was that some European NGOs don’t want to work with partner countries because of bureaucracy. The was a case one organization in Budapest said to me that I was selected and in a week they wrote to me something like “We talked about you in our organization. We would prefer to have a volunteer from Europe”. But I didn’t give up after it. And then I found HRYO.

First time I wrote to them in winter 2017. They  refused me, because they had a selected volunteer for the coming project. I decided to write to them at the beginning of September and they selected me. On the 25th of December we found out the project was proved by the National Agency.

So that’s how I got in Palero. Now I live with 6 more people in the flat. We came in Palermo by three different programs to work at HRYO. My flatmates are from  Moldova, Romania, England, Norway, Spain. Here a Russian saying can be suitable “We are all so different and still we are together”.

As to the city of Palermo, the biggest advantages for me are:

  • The city is small enough. It is possible to walk to lots of places. Nevertheless there are some buses, trams and one metro line;
  • It is easy to be vegan here. Almost in any local supers I can find things with the label “vegan”. In Belarus vegans have more problems;
  • There are lots parks. I do like sitting under trees;
  • Most of local people are friendly and try to help foreigners.

There are some disadvantages either, sure, but the only one that is worth mentioning is the following. They take cash only in too many places, including cafes and the ATM don’t give cash if you use an American or British bank (and maybe some others). This brought many problems to my friend from the USA.

On the 9th of May I with 4 other volunteers of HRYO went to Cinissi, a small town 30 km from Palermo, to take part in the march of J. Impastato, the local hero who fought against mafia. We came there some hours earlier, so we had an opportunity to enjoy the landscapes. I was very happy to participate in the event, because in Belarus I go to peaceful assemblies as an observer only. So it was a new experience for me.

I hope the year will be useful for me and I will have a lot of fun either.[:]

[:it]Evs HRYO at Palermo Pride 2017[:]

[:it]

I had an opportunity to participate in Palermo pride events that were taking place from 28 June until 2nd July. It was a chance for me to enjoy many different concerts and funny shows that got attention of a wide audience. The grand opening started on a big square called Piazza Bologni. Each evening there were so many people coming to listen to music and enjoy the atmosphere. It made me realize how Palermo’s inhabitants support LGBTI community. Diversity is welcomed and it gives people freedom to choose.

During these days the diversity was also represented in colours, in music, in many public events that reached its peak during the last event of Palermo pride day. I was happy to join and while dancing through streets and following music that was coming from big trucks, I understood how it is important to be part of this big group of people that give support to diversity, to LGBTI community.

The most important thing I learned from participating in these events is that we are all equal, we are all humans. Our choices are different, but the respect is to be equal for all.

That is where the importance of the Pride also comes from. It shows how easy but crucial it can be to get together and celebrate our differences.

And it all happened thanks to many organizations that organized and supported Palermo pride 2017, such as Ali d’Aquila, Alibi, Arcigay Palermo, Arci Palermo, Arcobalena, Articolo 3 “Salvatore Rizzuto Adelfio”, Associazione Radicale “David Kato Kinsule”, Blow up, Exit, Famiglie, Arcobalena, Gatta di Pezza, Gino e Massimo Sposi, Gruppo Buddista, Arcobalena, Laboratorio Sud,Labaratorio Zen İnsieme, Qui Palermo,Stay Queer Stay Rebell and many other.[:en]

Ozkan, che sta svolgendo il suo SVE a Palermo con HRYO racconta l’orto BhRYO.

Codifas was born in 2006 by the spontaneous union of a group of farmers who, at the end of the agricultural campaign, realized that the revenues from their farms were far lower than the expenses they had incurred. They provides green maintenance services for condominiums, businesses and individuals.

Today, They promotes a new low environmental impact farming model, compatible with the protection of health and biodiversity. Through the Orti Urban we inform the citizens about the different cultivation methods, the use of natural products for fertilization and the fight against parasites.They firmly believe that the only viable path is the creation of solidarity networks as it imposes the economic and ethical necessity of producing a sense of responsibility, awareness, and mutual respect.

Now I am volenteer at Human Rights Youth Organization and They have small parcel inside of this green place. I belıeve that thıs place is very good for touch to nature. Planting vegetables and waiting for their growing process make you more pation. And in the same time this place is very quite, you can listen yourself during work. Kind of meditation. There are lot of people workıng their parcel to making vegatables grow up. I am sure that those people care their soul and they eat organic vegetables which was growed by themselves.

I think this place is quite good for teach something to children like learn in process. With this way children can realized nature and they can feel love by toucing soil and vegetables. They can recognize that they are living in real earth. All those things is valid for disability people also.

This place open for all people just try to get contact with codifas.

[:en]Artistic Freedom[:]

[:en]H.R.Y.O has a new space to welcome its volunteers! Their new place of life, of an immaculate white will soon turn into a space with the colors of the world…

 

The objective is to personalize this place by giving it an international atmosphere representing the multiculturality that reigns within the apartment.

 

At the origin of this idea, one of our volunteers whose project is particularly dear to her, had seek out for street artists via social networks and managed to bring a dozen artists from all over the world. No need to be an expert, we offer our white walls to anyone who wishes to express his art or simply to train.

This Friday brings the first meeting of this artistic experience, at the end of which we will determine the needs and desires of each participant.

 

Do not hesitate to join our team! As Anatole France said: “In art as in love, instinct is enough.»

Combining the moment of sharing and linguistic exchanges this activity is an opportunity for H.R.Y.O to make known and share its values of dialogue, mutual aid and openness to the world in a friendly atmosphere. In this way, several times a week, during several weekly sessions of 4h, artists will come as they want to paint and will be supervised by our team.

At the end of this project, a video will be produced and broadcast by H.R.Y.O, to immortalize this experience and collect the testimonies of our painters.

We will give you an appointment in one month for an exhibition full of color and creativity![:]
