About the local hosting organization

Le FPEC a reçu la proposition de créer un « Museo Viviente » qui contribuerait à la conservation et à la revitalisation du patrimoine culturel matériel et immatériel du peuple Kichwa Otavalango, à travers la recherche, le développement du tourisme et l'éducation culturelle.

About the volunteer work

Description du projet :

Le Museo Viviente est un lieu fascinant. Il est situé dans une ancienne usine textile où, de 1851 à 1998, des membres du groupe indigène local Kichwa ont dû travailler dans des conditions terribles. En 2011, un groupe de familles kichwa a réussi à acheter le lieu pour créer un centre culturel comprenant un musée de la culture kichwa et un espace pour des événements culturels et sociaux et des cours de langue kichwa. L'espace a beaucoup de potentiel, mais a besoin d'aide pour être reconstruit.

Description des tâches à effectuer : Le tâches à effectuer impliquent l'utilisation d'outils tels que des pelles, houes et autres. Il ne faut pas avoir peur de se salir ! Les volontaires vont prêter main forte aux familles en rénovant et réaménageant l'entrée, en réparant l'escalier de la pyramide - canal d'eau et en développant des jeux éducatifs pour les enfants sur l'art du tissage, avec l'aide de la communauté locale - thème d'étude : Culture locale, vie communautaire, histoire locale.

Local accommodation

Les volontaires seront logés sur le lieu du projet. Le musée est situé à une distance raisonnable du centre ville de Otavalo, avec son célèbre marché artisanal indigène.

About the project location

Otavalo est une ville située à deux heures de bus du nord de Quito. La ville se trouve à la base du volcan Imbabura et dans ses environs, les volontaires pourront se endre à de nombreux beaux lacs et cascades, destinations possibles pour des excursions. La ville vibre d'énergie et en même temps est plus détendue et beaucoup plus sûre que la métropole Quito. Otavalo est un endroit intéressant en raison de l'importance de la culture indigène avec ses festivités, ses vêtements, son artisanat, sa musique, etc. Puisque le projet se déroule au musée, les volontaires pourront en apprendre beaucoup sur la culture locale.

About the leisure activities possible

Les après-midis après le projet sont libres pour faire n'importe quel type d'activité de groupe comme le sport, les promenades, ou simplement profiter de l'endroit.

About the local hosting organizationThe Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected ( often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another. The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. They provide clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large. Grassroots ownership of the SDGs is one of the factors which will lead to the desired results.

About the volunteer work

À travers à ce projet, les volontaires pourront non seulement partager leur amour pour la photographie, mais aussi en apprendre plus sur les problèmes environnementaux à l’échelle locale et internationale. Ils doivent être passionnés de photographie et avoir la volonté d’apprendre ou de développer des compétences photographiques, mais aussi être intéressés par des sujets tels que : le réchauffement climatique, la gestion des déchets, la protection des animaux, les solutions durables et encore d’autres points environnementaux. Si toutes ces caractéristiques correspondent aux centres d’intérêt des volontaires, alors ils sont faits pour ce projet !

Ils développeront, par ailleurs, leurs compétences artistiques et leurs techniques photographiques et participeront également à des ateliers, discussions et visites organisées par les coordinateurs SEEDS afin de se concentrer, entre autre, sur les thèmes de l’environnement et la durabilité. L’un des objectifs de l’association consiste à façonner des consommateurs et voyageurs plus conscients de la situation environnementale. De plus, les volontaires auront notamment le temps de mettre en pratique la théorie apprise et d’explorer la ville. Ainsi, à la fin du projet, les meilleures photographies seront sélectionnées pour faire partie d’une exposition informelle qui sera tenue dans une galerie publique locale.

Les volontaires doivent, si possible, apporter leurs propres caméras digitales, objectifs et ordinateurs et être prêts à parcourir les rues de la ville pour participer à diverses activités et visites. Ils auront éventuellement l’occasion de visiter d’autres projets locaux qui consacrent leurs activités à l’environnement et la préservation. Celles-ci peuvent consister en des activités pratiques de volontariat ou des visites guidées telles que : des actions de nettoyage de l’environnement et des côtes, une visite dans un centre de recyclage et d’une centrale géothermale ; visite d’un musée, d’une exposition ou encore participer à un diner communautaire dans une organisation non gouvernementale locale. Cependant, la faisabilité de ces activités dépend de la disponibilité des partenaires et des conditions météorologiques. Il faut noter qu’il s’agit d’un projet d’apprentissage et de partage et non d’un chantier standard. Tous les volontaires doivent donc mettre à contribution leurs propres connaissances et expériences. Ils devraient également profiter de cette occasion pour partager des anecdotes sur leur propre pays et culture comme la nourriture, musique, jeux ou films avec le reste du groupe composé de volontaires venus du monde entier.

Le programme SEEDS combine apprentissage, partage, familiarisation avec l’Islande et sa culture, amusement, exploration de la capitale et de certaines attractions naturelles du Cercle d’or ou d’autres visites qui font partie du chantier. Pour ce projet, SEEDS organisera une soirée photographie et un atelier de « chasse aux Aurores » (lumières nordiques) dans la campagne, à proximité de Reykjavík. Cette activité se déroulera en soirée et se prolongera potentiellement dans la nuit. Toutefois, il n’est pas garanti que les volontaires observeront les aurores boréales, car les activités solaires sont irrégulières et leur observation dépend des conditions météorologiques. Dans tous les cas, un atelier de photographie nocturne sera organisé. 


Local accommodation

Les volontaires SEEDS logeront dans une maison assez simple à Reykjavík qui comprend des douches, une cuisine et une machine à laver. Le respect des autres est de mise. Les volontaires se partageront les chambres à coucher et dormiront dans un sac de couchage qu’ils devront apporter eux-mêmes. L’association recevra des stocks de nourriture et le groupe se chargera de la cuisine et du nettoyage. Il ne faut pas oublier d’apporter des plats, boissons, musiques, jeux et recettes traditionnels ou typiques du pays d’origine des volontaires pour les partager lors de la soirée internationale.

About the project location

Reykjavík est une ville dynamique et moderne qui vit en harmonie avec une nature à couper le souffle et qui utilise des sources d’énergie renouvelable. La capitale la plus au nord du monde fait le pont sur l’Atlantique et entre l’Europe et l’Amérique du Nord. Reykjavík s’étend sur une péninsule avec une vue panoramique sur les montagnes et l’Atlantique, et ce, de pratiquement tous les côtés. La ville est internationale et possède une scène culturelle cosmopolite et vivante entourée d’une nature extraordinaire.

Extra info about the project

Les frais de participation s’élèvent à 350 euros qui peuvent soit, être transférés en avance via un virement bancaire, soit avancés à l’arrivée des volontaires. Les frais comprennent le transport du point de rencontre au chantier, l'excursion du Cercle d'or et la visite d'une centrale géothermale ainsi que les ateliers de photographie nocturne et de « chasse aux aurores ».

About the local hosting organizationThis workcamp has been organized with Green Volunteers for Green Future (GV4GF) since 2012 (since 2017 with this community). GV4GF is a NGO to promote voluntary service, environmental protection and improve rural life. Forests occupied 50% of the national land 20 years ago, but now only 30%. Sri Lanka is colonized by Portuguese, Dutch and British that left lots of social unrests and destroyed tradition. Strange plans were introduced incl. agricultural and educational systems called as development, but we are now suffered by these effects. We need human, sustainable and participative development to change the lives into positive and productive way. We are trying to do this with volunteers without destroying our tradition, culture and environment.

About the volunteer workIn the 1st week, volunteers will establish a plant nursery at the temple premises with the youth by cleaning the land, making pots and composts, planting seeds and seedlings, watering, etc. In the 2nd week, volunteers will visit around and do 1. Cultural exchange with villagers and youth, 2. Activities with children and 3. Work and assist to the self-help group members' activities.

Local accommodationVillage house at nice location, close to the main road. There is electricity, so volunteers can charge our mobile and cameras, but internet is weak and let's enjoy simple life without internet in the indigenous community. Host family will cook different kinds of local foods with fruits and volunteers should wash our dishes and clothes by hand.

About the project locationSubrub of Higurakgoda, located at 231km from Colombo, with a lot of legendary stories. It is a rural area with low facilities, but lot of kind and friendly people. Surrounding are lakes and paddy fields with fresh breeze, you can feel.

RequirementsHigh motivation to work while experiencing different type of life style, accept challenges, adopt to local environment, respect and accept local life and culture.

Extra info about the project*Study theme: Volunteers can learn about environment, culture, livelihood, traditional agriculture and industries as well as history, old more than 2,500 years. *Other activities: Volunteers can visit nearby temple, historical sites, some other attractive points located around the area. *About fee, 20 USD less for Repeaters of GV4GF workcamps and those from less expensive countries.
