Eray arriva dalla Turchia. E’ uno dei ragazzi del Servizio Volontario Europeo che ha aderito al progetto “Social Environment & Natural Environment … a European comparison”
Eray, come gli altri ragazzi SVE, ha il compito di affiancare il coordinamento nazionale e il fundraising, organizzando eventi e partecipando alla vita e alle attività di Tulime Onlus, tramite laboratori ed attività diverse volte a promuovere i valori della diversità e della cooperazione, della cultura dell’accoglienza e della solidarietà, di uno stile di vita salutare, dei valori dell’ecologia, della cittadinanza attiva, del confronto interculturale.
Guidati dai nostri tutors, i ragazzi stanno conoscendo la città di Palermo e molti aspetti legati alla cooperazione di comunità e all’ambiente naturale della Sicilia, tramite anche collaborazioni con alcuni operatori del settore Educazione Ambientale e workshop di formazione.
Accreditati per il programma EVS/SVE dal 2012, in questi anni abbiamo avuto modo di conoscere e confrontarci con ragazzi di diversa nazionalità e riuscire insieme a loro a riflettere sui valori e sulle potenzialità della Cooperazione di Comunità e a portare avanti attività ed azioni …..
Ecco le prime impressioni di Eray.

A General Overview To The Last Week
It was the backing time after a long, hard and full of experiences travelling, as well. If people want to learn something about the real life, they just need to go and being on the roads, that’s all. Me also, learnt so many things from this trip and I continue to learn like all people who want to learn in reality.
Anyway… My writing purpose of these sentences is to inform the association about what ı did in the last week, what kind of activities ı had done or something like this. If I had to talk about the last week, I should state that was a bit harder for me; especially after my deeply travelling. Fortunately, adaptation to the same condition of Palermo and our activities was not so hard for me.
Firstly, I arrived to Palermo on the 13th of January, on Tuesday. In that day, I did my own work as to clean my dirty staffs and to clean myself, etc. Then, the day after on Tuesday, on the 14th of January, we had a meeting in Officina 22 that was about to coordinate and to clear up the next activities.
Secondly, on the 15th of January, on Thursday, we had another meeting in the Tulime Office. After the meeting in Officina 22, we had several options about some activities, but we needed to clarify these options. All of us tried to realize this purpose and to clarify the next activities. In addition to them, we met a guy whom name is Giuseppe who was a really friendly and creative person. We probably can work and produce together some good ideas in the near future for the association which is really exciting: “Use It”.
Finally, before finishing my writing, I need to say something about the last day that was in Officina 22, in the garden. It is the one of the best place where ı feel myself really happy and useful. I worked together with Marco, Elisa and others and we cleaned and made some arrangement in the garden, was like a worker.

Something Starts To Go Well
I have a defining to express my feelings since I’ve arrived to Palermo which was expressed by me: “EVS is a new beginning!”. I really think that about EVS in this way. Normally, we had some problems about the organising the activites, however, especially in these 3 days, as I said in the topic, something starts to go well…
First of all, there is something that really important for me is to learn Italian. I will be in Palermo at least 6 months more –and I hope more, because of this reason to be able to learn Italian is vital for me. After really unsuccessful Italian lessons at the university, the new lessons that are in our association which is given by our Tutor is being very useful. This is a really positive development for our situation here. So, all of them are about the 19th of January in Tulime Onlus.
Secondly, may be the one of the most important topic for me is to work in the garden of Officina 22. I was really like look a worker! Nature to be nested is a perfect situation ı think and the Officiana 22’s garden is the best to be able to obtain this aim! It was such a beautiful day! I mow the lawn with a machine which was so heavy after that it was a full of satisfaction for me.
The last day that is before the training in Nicolosi, near Catania, was in Officina 22 again. I met some women who work for another assosiation that is produce some recycling staffs. They are really creative and probably ı will work with them on every Wednesday. It makes me so excited!
All we need to respect to ourselves!..”
