Zury needs volunteers in Romania and Kenya

Association empowering young people to be active citizens

IN ROMANIA, AND RECENTLY KENYA, ZURY ASSOCIATION IS DEVELOPING DIFFERENT INITIATIVES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TO EMPOWER THEM TO BE ACTIVE CITIZENS AND TO CAPACITATE THEM WITH ALTERNATIVE AND TRANSVERSAL SKILLS USEFUL IN A CONTINUOUS CHANGING SOCIETY.

“WE OFFER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CHILDREN THE POSSIBILITY TO EXERCISE THEIR PASSIONS, DISCOVER THEIR POTENTIAL AND FIND THEIR WAY IN LIFE, BY ENGAGING THEM IN NON-FORMAL AND ALTERNATIVE FORMS OF EDUCATION WHICH THEY LEARN VARIOUS LIFE SKILLS AND ACQUIRE POSITIVE ATTITUDES”, EXPLAINS ANDREEA SIDA MOCANU, PRESIDENT OF ZURY.

THE NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION ENCOURAGES EVERY PERSON TO DO VOLUNTARY WORK WITH INITIATIVES IN ROMANIA OR IN KENYA. “OUR BIGGEST NECESSITIES ARE HUMAN RESOURCES (MAINLY VOLUNTEERS, BUT ALSO STAFF) AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT IN TERMS OF ACCESSING GRANTS OR DONATIONS THAT CAN HELP US IMPLEMENT OUR IDEAS AND INITIATIVES IN VARIOUS FIELDS, ESPECIALLY IN KENYA TO ENSURE SUSTAINABILITY OF CURRENT ONGOING PROJECTS”, EXPLAINS ANDREEA SIDA MOCANU. “WE HAVE RECENTLY STARTED A CROWD FUNDING CAMPAIGN TO RAISE FUNDS NECESSARY TO BUILD A SCHOOL AND A BOARDING FACILITY FOR THE STREET KIDS IN KIBERA, NAIROBI, WHICH IS THE 3RD LARGEST SLUM IN THE WHOLE WORLD”, EXEMPLIFIES ZURY’S PRESIDENT.

SINCE 2013, ZURY HAS MANAGED TO IMPLEMENT OVER 20 PROJECTS WITH MORE THAN 2500 BENEFICIARIES THAT PARTICIPATED IN DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES SUCH AS INFORMATION, AWARENESS RAISING CAMPAIGNS, SPORTIVE ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS, LANGUAGE CLASSES, IT COURSES, VARIOUS WORKSHOPS, TRAININGS, YOUTH EXCHANGES AND VOLUNTEERING STAGES. THE ASSOCIATION HAS ESTABLISHED MORE THAN 35 PARTNERSHIPS SO FAR, WORKED WITH 24 FOREIGN VOLUNTEERS AND 14 LOCAL ONES. “WE HAVE GROWN EVERY YEAR AND WE INTEND TO DEVELOP EVEN MORE INITIATIVES IN THE COMING FUTURE WITH THE HELP OF OUR FINANCERS AND OTHER CONTRIBUTORS”, STATES ANDREEA SIDA MOCANU.

ZURY´S TEAM CONSIDERS THAT WORLD LIFE EXPERIENCE CAN “HELP YOUNG PEOPLE TO GROW” AND IT’S A “REMARKABLE EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVE” WHICH BRINGS THE WORLD CLOSER TO EACH OTHER. “TRAVELING ALONG WITH VOLUNTEERING CREATES HUGE OPPORTUNITIES BY OPENING THE EYES OF YOUNG PEOPLE TO CREATE BETTER AND OPEN SOCIETIES AND ENSURE THE PROPER SUSTAINABILITY OF OUR COMMUNITIES. IT EMPOWERS THEM TO BE SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE WHILE ALSO GAINING INVALUABLE LIFE SKILLS AND DEVELOP ON A PERSONAL LEVEL LIKE NO OTHER COMBINED EXPERIENCE WOULD”, DESCRIBES ANDREEA SIDA MOCANU.
