Casa IBO: let's start!

Training for teachers
Training for teachers

The first training activities and the first meetings, the interminable cleanings and the first flowers, the first community lunches and the first volunteers who spend the night here: the first concrete steps of Casa IBO waiting for the inauguration. In few months, Casa Ibo will be not only the national headquarters of our NGO, but above all a reference point for volunteers from Ferrara, from all over Italy and all over the world.

During these weeks our group of volunteers has continued to work on the structure of Casa Ibo, but the first activities and opportunities for meetings have also begun!

 

Between 3rd and 5th January 2019

The scout troop "Thiene 1" helped us to sand the stairsIt was a bit hard but everyone did their little part and, thanks to our dedication, we managed to complete the work despite the fatigue. As the scout group wrote: "a great goal is achieved only by collaborating and helping each other".

Saturday 16th February 2019 "Casa IBO" Cleaning DayIt was time to start a big tidy round (internal and external) for the next training activities of young volunteers (even before the headquarters moves in).

Thursday 28th February 2019 First day of service for our new community service volunteersWe showed them "Casa IBO" which in the next weeks will become our new headquarters, we started to build the group, to know the neighborhood and cook together!

Saturday 9th March 2019 Second Day of Cleaning at CASA IBOWith our new civil service volunteers we continued the internal and external cleaning of the new house!

Thursday, 14th March 2019 Start of a new training programme (four meetings) co-financed by the Ministry of Labor and social policies and the Italian agency for development cooperation.The first meeting was held on March 14th with the participation of Ilaria Persanti (IBO Italia) and Elena Brina operator of Caritas of Ferrara, an organization which works with people who live in difficult situations offering them different services: soup kitchen , showers, clothing distribution (etc) and since 2014 it deals also with women and children seeking asylum, with the aim of accompanying and supporting the construction of individual autonomy projects.The further meetings addressed the following topics: Teenagers and how to bring them closer to today's challenges (20th March);"Why I do this?" - The Motivation and the Role of Teachers (29th March); Teaching units on Development Goals and the migration phenomenon - The Web Radio communication tool (4th April). Beneficiaries of this training programme are teachers from some middle and high schools in Ferrara. The aim is to imagine together innovative teaching tools about new and foundamental social topics.

Saturday, 23rd March Participation at the second initiative of "My Ferrara" organized by the Urban Center.The theme of this edition was "Spring cleaning in green areas" and one of the areas where volunteers worked was the public garden of Casa IBO.

There is still much work to be done but thanks to the passion of our volunteers we will be able to move soon in the new house and bit by bit we will make Casa Ibo even more a welcoming place for everyone!
