From September 2013 until May 2014 we had a long-term training course on changing attitudes with youngsters from Szeged and Hódmezővásárhely. From Szeged, Móra Ferenc Vocational School was our partner with two classes. Móra Ferenc Vocational School is mainly a segregated school with lots of Roma young people. From Hódmezővásárhely our partner was Németh László High School which is a high-qualified high school and only a small amount of Roma students attend to it.
24.04.2014 - Turks, Armenians and Europeans, let’s commemorate the Armenian genocide together and in Turkey!
In 1915, the implementation of a methodical and premeditated plan led to the extermination of one and a half million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, in an attempt to destroy an entire civilization and to “Turkify” Anatolia. The Armenian people were the victims of a genocide which would soon serve as a gruesome reference for others to follow.
Another training using the method “Peer to peer” is now a fact. The subjects of tolerance and being a volunteer were discussed in detail on the training which took place on the 23rd of April at the “Dimitar Blagoev” school in Shumen, initiated by the club “Youth Is Tolerance” – Shumen.
Training on "Teamwork" by the method "peer to peer", part of a series of training of the volunteers of the club "Youth is tolerance'' - Blagoevgrad was held. On 04/15/2014, in the National Humanitarian High School of Arts "St. Cyril and Methodius'' in Blagoevgrad, the volunteers: Alexandra, Iveta and Vesselina trained a number of students how to work in a team. The main topics were: "Communicating without words'' and ''Conflict Management".
Different initiatives all over the country were organized by Center “Amalipe” in the occasion of 8th of April – International Roma Day. “Sun shine is equally for all of us” was the slogan of the campaign. “Youth is Tolerance” YTFG’s and the Centers for community development (CCD) under Center Amalipe and lots of schools took part in this initiative in a national level.
This is how the campaign was held:
