In July 2017, we joined a strategic training course supported by Erasmus +, which is slowly coming to an end. The project “Eco Facilitator” was submitted by Szatyor Association in Hungary, in partnership with 3 other countries, including Spain, Slovakia and Romania. On behalf of Romania, our association is represented in every movement.
We are embarking on a new adventure as we will host 24 European Solidarity Corps (ESC) volunteers in Cristuru Secuiesc in 2019 and 2020 through an already approved project. The candidates have the choice to be active in 8 different areas: support person for entities working with disabled youth (1), kindergarten (2), herbalist (3), www.keresztur.info news portal (4) and host organization (5) support person, up-cycling education (6) and puppet show group (7) manager and as promoter of rural traditions (8).
From 23rd to 28th November 6 youngsters from each country (Romania, Estonia, Poland, Slovakia) switched from the cold winter to the hot Cartagena for one week and participated in a youth exchange.
The Youth Association from Transylvania joined the Youth in Progress and Partnership for Equality and Exchange (YIPPEE) project to learn new methods and approaches and to give a new chance for the youth with fewer opportunities we work with to develop themselves by learning about Digital Storytelling and the UNs Sustainable Development Goals.

StartUp Academy project’s aim is to develop, test and implement a supporting environment for unemployed young persons with entrepreneurial ideas with special focus on those living in remote regions with limited access to education and training and resources. After a large-scale surveying, project partners planed, designed and developed a training materials so called learning modules for young adults (aged 18-35) with innovative ideas but with limited entrepreneurial skills. The learning modules have a basic (Phase 1) and an advanced (Phase 2) parts. Phase 1 – Basic part was an online training with 7 modules. During this training through 7 modules, we focused on helping young adults learn basic skills and competences in business life.
Why the Hell I`m here?
Hello! My names is Alekss and I come from a magical, far away land of Latvia. I`m volunteering here in Keresztur for six months. Honestly, theres not much to tell you. The most basic of reason why I chose to do voluteering work is because I can not stay at one place for too long, so I thought, if I`m moving I might aswell to do good. You know?
Week in Hungary with start up courses was one of my best experience in my life .
I lear a lot of stuff about business and economical things .
I finally realize my ideas and start to prepare them for real life .
City was really good . Pretty big ,enough space for everyone but in the same time university wasn’t that far form university .
Lectures was well prepared , and for me sharing experience with people from other country’s was the best part . One think what I didn’t like was that we sissy start in the time ,just because some people didn’t come in the time. (Sandij)
My name is Maria Inês Araújo, I´m 30 years old and I´m from Braga, a city in Portugal.
I´m a chinese medicine therapist and that´s pretty much my area of work since 2015/2016 which was the time I began to treat people with this millenarian medicine together with other holystic techniques that I´m graduated.
I am an initial apprentice of yoga and I do it a few times per week with meditation. Both things I also teached to friends, childreen (as a volunteer in a school) and in workshops I leaded.
I´m a vegetarian (in a way to be vegan) trying to live my life in the most natural way possible, with awareness, respect for all living things and with natural food.
I chose this EVS project in Romania because I thought Romania a very diferent place in Europe, specially from latin countries I´m used to travel. I also wanted to know Transylvania that seems to me so full of mysticism and beauty, and of course travel more around Romania in the baltic countries if there is time for that.
In this project I chose herbalism because it´s a field I want to know more about.
My expectations for this project are to learn more about some variety of plants, their efects, how to plant them, best time to plant, to pick, to work on them, etc. Also I´m very interested about knowing how to do destilations, tinctures, recipies of medicines, syrups, essencial oils, natural soaps, etc.
