About the local hosting organization

Le projet mondial Ruta Arqueologica Minera (route archéologique minière) a été mis en place par la municipalité locale afin de relier des petites communautés et des sites du patrimoine industriel au moyen d’activités culturelles et de la construction d’une route touristique. En effet, la ville de Pachuca est fière de son passé minier mais ses mines ne sont plus utilisées depuis bien longtemps et les anciens ouvriers vivent dans des communautés aujourd’hui éloignées de la ville et des services de base. Les systèmes miniers complexes et les usines connexes témoignent des différentes étapes de l’activité industrielle : ses débuts sous l’occupation espagnole à la fin du XVIème siècle, la technologie britannique du XIXème siècle et le XXème siècle qui a apporté l'électricité et les dernières interventions de l'ère américaine. Les volontaires s’occuperont de la restauration des espaces verts de façon à mettre des espaces publics à dispositions des communautés environnantes. Ils organiseront des activités culturelles pour impliquer les citoyens et attirer les touristes.

About the volunteer work

Les volontaires s'occuperont de la restauration des espaces verts autour de Mina Camelia, pas loin du centre-ville. Il faudra retirer les mauvaises herbes et les plantes envahissantes, niveler le sol, placer des bancs et du mobilier urbain. L'objectif est de créer un parc public pour le communauté.

Local accommodation

Les volontaires seront logés dans le centre communautaire CRIC. Ils y trouveront une cuisine et toutes les installations. Ils dormiront sur des lits de camps.
Les volontaires préparent leurs repas.

About the project location

Pachuca est une ville située sur le plateau central du Mexique, entourée de montagnes et de parcs naturels.

About the local hosting organizationThe Ruta Arqueológica Minera is a global project promoted by the local municipality that intends to connect small communities and industrial heritage sites through a touristic route and cultural activities. Although Pachuca is proud of its mining past, the sites have not been used for a long time and the people that once worked there live in communities now disconnected from the city and lacking basic services. The complex system of mines and related factories mark different stages of industrial activity, starting with the late XVIth century and the presence of Spanish conquerors, British technology from the XIXth century, all the way to the XXth century, which brought electricity and the latest interventions during the American era. Volunteers will contribute to the restoration of green areas in order to create public spaces for the communities that surround the sites, as well as creating cultural activities to involve citizenship and attract tourism.

About the volunteer workVolunteers will be involved in reconditioning the green area surrounding the Mina Camelia, close to the city center. Work will consist of clearing invasive weed and vegetation, leveling the ground and placing benches and urban furnishing to create a public park for the community.

Local accommodationVolunteers will be hosted in the community center CRIC, with kitchen and complete facilities where cots will be installed. The food will be prepared by the volunteers.

About the project locationPachuca is a city in the central plateau in Mexico, surrounded by mountains and natural parks.

About the local hosting organizationCreated in 1957, the NGO Togolese Association of Volunteers at Work (ASTOVOT) is one of the first Togolese associations. As a non-profit layman, ASTOVOT has been supporting international solidarity initiatives for a number of decades, as well as the self-promotion of grassroots communities through local development projects. Today, it remains a great reference in terms of international volunteering and civic service in Togo. Each year, the NGO ASTOVOT receives dozens of volunteers from European countries (Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Spain, Luxembourg…) and also from Asia (Japan) thanks to its partnership with several organizations working in the field of international volunteering and civil service. With a staff of six (6) people within the Coordination, the Togolese Association of Volunteers at Work (ASTOVOT) is an association of International Volunteering and Local Development with the objective of: - Contribute to the animation of the life by the participation of the Togolese and foreign volunteers to the realization of the works of general interest; - Contribute to improving the living conditions of local populations by promoting their development and well-being by safeguarding the ecological, socio-cultural, educational and health environment; - Promote the movement of people and goods through international and intercultural exchanges;

About the volunteer workToday there are many young Togolese who try or want to go through the Sahel countries and challenge the waves of the Mediterranean with pirogues or makeshift boats to find the shores of Europe. Unfortunately this perilous and fatal adventure continues to cause desolation within families because there are some of these young people who do not cross this "imaginary Eldorado" and perish in the Mediterranean or in the ocean. The wave of illegal or irregular migration has taken on unprecedented proportions in the recent years. During the crossing to Europe, most migrants perish due to the wreckage of their makeshift boats. It is not a question for the NGO ASTOVOT to fight against the illegal immigration but to make the candidates aware of the dangers of that. Because many are among them who do not know the realities of the trip and those who do not know the country of destination, ASTOVOT wants to educate the unknowing. Through this summer camp, ASTOVOT wants to contribute in its own way to inform and raise awareness through actions and to support young people on the difficulties of irregular immigration. For this purpose, it intends to conduct awareness campaigns to discourage prospective immigrants. These educative sessions will be furnished by sharing information on the consequences of irregular immigration with young people. GOALS - Organize information and awareness sessions in neighborhoods for young people through football matches - Make presentations of films and documentaries illustrating the dangers of illegal immigration - Organize roundtables: exchange of experiences between international volunteers and local volunteers MAIN ACTIVITIES The implementation of the project will consist of researching, designing and animating contents describing the migrants' experiences during their journey: - Volunteers do research and organize debates with the young on immigration issues - Volunteers will make collections of photos, documentary films and testimonies showing the dangers of illegal immigration - Volunteers will show photos, documentary films and testimonials in public squares in different districts of Kpalimé City to attract the attention of a large number of people - Volunteers will organize talk shows on Kpalime's local radio stations to raise awareness of the issues and dangers of irregular immigration - Volunteers will produce awareness posters - Volunteers will produce and present skits to raise awareness - Volunteers will conduct awareness campaigns on social networks including Facebook and other media: • Discussions, brainstorming, debates • Practical cases, forum theater • Broadcasting of audiovisual media REQUIRED This project responds to the more and more recurrent immigration issues in socio-political and economic debates, so it requires real support and mobilization of technical and material means for its realization. Volunteers interested in this project are asked to collect enough tools or educational kits for awareness (documentary films, posters, documents ... etc.).

Local accommodationHousing conditions are generally primitive. The volunteers will be housed together in the same house with several rooms (usually 2 to 4 rooms) and will live near the project site. Housing will be provided with plastic mats or straws but volunteers can however provide small inflatable mattresses or small floor mats (no bed), sleeping bag, mosquito nets etc. The kitchen will be organized by the volunteers themselves. FOOD Volunteers will cook and eat together their meals. In the kitchen, they will use the local products. There are many various vegetables and fruits in location, so vegetarian and vegan diets can be continued. NB: Clean drinking water available.

About the project locationInternet access and electricity are limited according to the areas of intervention of the projects. Apart from the activities to be carried out on the building site, you can enjoy walks, meetings with the particularly welcoming population, organize parties and excursions to visit the surrounding villages.

About the project location

Nadoba, Koutammakou. Patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO

Koutammakou, la terre des Batammariba, est de 500 km2 et elle se compose de 4 cantons : Nadoba (Kounadowou), Koutougou, Warengo et Agbonté. Naoba est à environ 620 km de Lomé au Nord du Togo. Le site a été classé patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO en 2004. Le Bénin est à 4 km de Nadoba.
Les Batammariba sont des agriculteurs et des chasseurs. Ils vivent dans des maisons en terre battue en forme de château, Tata, suivant une architecture très spéciale.
La langue parlée par les Batammariba est appelée le Ditammari qui est devenu avec la déformation Tamberma.La principale croyance des Batammariba est l’animisme. Les fétiches, qu’ils adorent et qui sont à l’entrée des Tatas, sont de diverses formes. Selon donc les formes, ils peuvent représenter à la fois : leurs ancêtres avec lesquels ils communiquent ; les grands exploits des chasseurs ; les membres de la famille encore en vie ; les différentes cérémonies.
Chez les Batammariba, les vivants ont un lien spirituel très profond avec les morts. En effet tout vivant doit sa vie au souffle d’un mort qui l’a désiré dans l’au-delà. On dirait une sorte de réincarnation. Les rites des deuils sont associés au retour à la vie et les noms secrets des morts renferment une énergie vitale. Les danses traditionnelles sont très souvent associées aux cérémonies.

About the leisure activities possible

Des soirées d’échanges et débats sont organisés autour de divers thèmes et sur les enjeux mondiaux actuels tels que : le choc culturel, l’immigration, le réchauffement climatique, le genre et développement… Ces soirées sont animées par les volontaires et modérées par l’animateur du chantier.

Requirements

Les volontaires qui n’ont pas suivi le week-end de préparation doivent impérativement nous le signaler à leur arrivée. Cela permettra de prendre en compte les différents sujets au cours de la réunion d’orientation à l’arrivée.

About the meeting point

Nous assurons l’accueil des volontaires à l’aéroport international général Gnassingbé Eyadéma à Lomé.
Tout volontaire inscrit sur un de nos chantiers doit nous faire part, bien avant le début du chantier, des détails de son arrivée (le jour, l’heure et le n° du vol). Il trouvera à son arrivée un des agents de FAGAD chargé de l’accueil.

Extra info about the project

Les frais de participation, d’accueil et de transports vers les chantiers s’élèvent à 230 euros par volontaire et par chantier.
Les frais couvrent la restauration et l’hébergement sur le chantier. Il permet d’assurer la présence du chargé d’accueil à l’aéroport pour aider le volontaire et les frais concernant le transport de l’aéroport jusqu’au chantier. Par contre, les chantiers au nord sont majorés de 50 euros de plus à cause de la distance. FAGAD ne prendra pas en charge les retours. Chaque volontaire prendra en charge son retour. Une nuit avant et une nuit après les chantiers sont également pris en charge. Les volontaires dormiront au lieu réservé par FAGAD. Les frais de participation couvrent également certains frais administratifs de l’ONG FAGAD et l’achat de certains matériels pour les chantiers. Les frais seront payés en euro ou en franc CFA (monnaie locale)

Attention: il peut arriver que nous regroupions deux ou trois chantiers dont les périodes sont proches les unes des autres pour insuffisance de volontaires. L’idée est de permettre aux volontaires de pouvoir vivre l’expérience d’un camp chantier dans un groupe assez diversifié pour des échanges plus animés et intéressants. Seuls les lieux peuvent changer, mais nous ferons tout pour que chacun soit satisfait en ce qui concerne le thème choisi au préalable.

About the volunteer workIndia has seen tremendous growth in economy since the early 90’s when it opened to the global market. However, with a population estimated at about 1.2 billion, the benefit of such a growth has been marginal. It is estimated that 78 million economically backward people are homeless in India and in Karnataka state alone, it is estimated that more than families are homeless. In urban areas, these populations occupy squatter settlements usually temporary in nature due to unavailability of land. It is also true that the economically backward or weak sections of the population are usually socially backward too. Socially backward refers to those segments of the population who are disadvantaged due to their social background. For example, the tribal communities may be socially disadvantaged because of their isolation from mainstream economy and the social benefits that it may provide to sustain life in the modern world. Their otherwise sustainable lifestyle may have been endangered due to government policies which is unreachable for the tribal groups. Recent evidence indicates that India is heading towards a major sanitation crisis in the coming years. The fastest growing economy seems to have missed out on having adequate toilet facilities for as high as 65% of its population. For example, nearly half of India’s 1.2 billion people have no toilet at home, but more than half of India’s people own a mobile phone, indicates the latest census data According to the census of 2011, 53.1% (63.6% in 2001) of the households in India do not have a toilet, with the percentage being as high as 69.3% (78.1% in 2001) in rural areas and 18.6% (26.3% in 2001) in urban areas Furthermore, field studies indicate that even the use of the existing toilets in both rural and urban areas is very low These facts have also been reconfirmed by another report released on 6th March 2012 by the WHO/UNICEF’s Joint Monitoring Programme on sanitation for the Millennium Development Goals, which has also indicated that 59% (626 million) Indians still do not have access to toilets and practice open defecation and that majority of them live in rural areas We have selected Hunsur town as our area of focus for this workcamp. It is home to tribal communities living mostly at the edge of the reserved forest in the Western Ghats and their livelihood is primarily based on forest produce and partly from agriculture. The literacy level in these communities is very low due to several reasons like poverty, frequent migration, inadequate infrastructure and poor accessibility. The federal and local government has initiated several schemes exclusively for these communities but has failed to achieve the expected results. Still the literacy level has not crossed 30 - 40 % and is even less among women population. FSL-India has been developing projects for m

The festival began in 2015 in Samara, now it has 27 participating cities. It brings together enthusiastic people in an effort to restore wooden buildings that lacked cultural heritage object status. Volunteers carefully take away old paint, clean the wood, replace shabby decorations and in the end give the house a new colour. That helps to make local people believe that with their own hands they can make the city more beautiful and nice to live in. All restoration activities are made by volunteers only with help from sponsors and fundraising.
