T.R.I.P Conference 

On the 3rd and 4th of November 2016, ESN Timişoara participated in T.R.I.P. Conference (Trauma and Resilience in the Post-Institutionalization of Children and Youth in the Social Protection System).


During the two days of the conference people who grew up in disadvantaged areas, but who have managed to chart a future professional and personal success shared their stories with the youngsters attending the meeting. 

In the presence of President of Timiş County Council, DGASPC and other local officials have discussed issues related to social impact in orphanages, combating poverty, school dropout of children from vulnerable backgrounds. Also, the opportunity of decentralization institutions was discussed and the problem of trusting NGOs working in this area.

In his speech, Ion Ursu presented the way the County Council and County Neamţ DGASPC involved and support the work of subordinated shelters. With experiences of volunteering in Nepal, he described briefly the social system in Romania.

The conclusions of the discussions were summarized in a report and proposals for improvements will be made to reality after leaving the special protection system. Subsequently, this report will be sent to A.N.P.C.A. Romanian Government and the Council of Europe to be analyzed in the special departments of the mentioned institutions.

The event was organized by Rendo Bot and another students, all young people who grew up in an institutional framework.

New volunteers in ESN Timisoara

Luna Septembrie a fost una fructuoasă pentru campania noastră de recrutare. După două săptămâni în care am urmărit să îi încurajăm pe cei interesați să aplice pentru a intra în familia ESN Timișoara prin testimoniale scrise de voluntarii mai vechi, prin prezentarea beneficiilor pentru dezvoltarea personală și profesională de care un voluntar se bucură o dată trecut de perioada de probă, mulți doritori s-au arătat. Am fost foarte bucuroși să îi primim cu brațele deschise. Entuziaștii voluntari ne-au prezentat ideile lor prin care pot contribui la creșterea familiei ESN Timișoara și s-au implicat în activități precum Welcome Week și prezentarea informațiilor necesare pentru studenții interesați să aplice pentru o mobilitate Erasmus+ la standul din holul Universității de Vest din Timișoara. Tema recrutării din Septembrie a fost „ESN te duce în teambuilding”. Ne dorim foarte mult ca noii voluntari să înțeleagă mai bine cum funcționează ESN și, mai ales, să ne cunoască pe noi mai bine, să n…

Eduk8 Starter Timișoara in 2016 – City Guide for a Day
  There are events during your lifetime that you will always remember. These are echoes of some long-ago experiences that you will keep in your mind forever. There are feelings, people, places that had a tremendous effect on your personal development. This is what Miruna, one of the participants in the event Eduk8 Starter in Timișoara, says about her experience in our city.   "For me and, I can guarantee that for any other Eduk8er, one of these life-changing moments is the decision to attend a Starter.

The bold truth you find out about yourself is the result of a week full of …
