  • “Let us be proud of European values” – Joint letter of more than 160 NGOs to EU leaders concerning migration issue

    In the face of migration crisis, European leaders are at a crossroads and can still chose the path to walk on. However, their responses and reactions haven’t been well aligned with true EU values that all EU member states have adhered to. Rather than seek to protect people fleeing brutal wars, persecution, human rights violations, instability and extreme poverty, EU institutions have become preoccupied with stopping people reaching Europe and trying to quickly expel those who do. Only last week, European Commission recommended locking up child migrants while they or their parents wait to see if they have been granted asylum. Not only is forcibly detaining children never in the child’s best interests, it is in breach of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child – a set of laws protecting children that every EU nation has signed up to. EU member states and institutions can either let fear erode the fundamental values they so often preach about yet practice less and less, or they can truly embody the principles the EU was founded on almost 60 years ago. Over 160 NGOs (including Terre des hommes) demanded European leaders take the second option today (8 March) and called […]

The youngsters felt inspired to declare their wish for openness, to work with empathy and keep the spirit of success alive. They agreed to exercise patience and stay committed to their involvement in the whole process. The 5 co-facilitators had chosen to symbolize their group rules through a tree, „as it grows – the trunk means the respect. The sun is the goodness that makes the clouds (lack of care) to fade away.” The training focused on project objectives, child’s rights and human rights, participation; communication and active listening, feedback, working team techniques, facilitation techniques, resilience and acceding personal resources.

    Between 23 to 24 February 2017, 25 social workers from Arges and Valcea counties are expected to attend the third training course on effective communication with and for people affected by migration (children whose parents are working abroad, children repatriated or refugees and their families etc).

The training course was held for the first time in Craiova, 27 to 28 June, 2016, and then re-delivered in Bucharest, on September 20 […]
