hosting organisation works on projects with national, European and/or international dimension. Our projects are carried out for hosting organisations team (3 Employees in full time, 2 Civic Service volunteers (Service Civique), the volunteers or the associations which visit frequently the House of the Citizen and the International Solidarity (Maison du Citoyen et de la Solidarité Internationale).hosting organisation intervenes to accompany the young people and the associations in their personal and collective projects.
In 2012, with the creation of the House of the Citizen and the International Solidarity, we created a space to accompany the citizens and the associations in their projects. We receive them every day coming from all the regions and we support them and make the accompaniment in the search for partners, the assembly (administrative and/or financial), the execution and the follow-up of the initiative. The weak point of the associations is in the follow-up, the communication and the valuation of the projects in march or already executed.
The COMMUNIC@TE project comes to complete the legibility of the projects, the information and evaluation, also with the edition of videos, to give a visual character of their activities. A partnership with all the associations evolving in the European and international fields is developed for the distribution of their project.
Make visible and accessible the initiatives (National, European and International) from young people and associations.
● Accompany and form the partner associations and the young people in their project of communication using multimedia tools as support.
● Share the experiences and good practice thanks to the multimedia supports.
● Value the associative work and the contribution of the lessors-financiers with the populations.
● Promote vocations in the young people.
● Create a dynamics around Europe, around international cooperation and around active citizenship.
Many associations work on European projects and of international solidarity. And interesting actions are every day made without the young people and the local populations are informed.
The valuation of the projects is the weak link of our actions giving the impression that nothing happens in our city,region or around us. We are accustomed to realizing reports to our lessors at the end of the projects, while the information might be shared and valued by the population.
These conclusions have been a fruit of several reflections done by the members of our associations and shared by the partners (our companions). It is the base of hosting organistion-TV’s birth.
With this already existing project, we can share information, images, videos, and moments with the actors of our projects and with the population in general. The volunteers are going to continue the work done by their predecessors. This will do that they eliminate their fear of the mobility (European and international) and will allow them, the young persons, be thrown to projects far from their neighborhood or city.
With the project COMMUNIC@TE, we want to receive 4 volunteers to support this initiative and to promote the European and international diversity.
This 4 selected volunteers are also going to put forward the activities of ADIF-TV and to manage activities of communication and information, administering the web site, participating in the writing of our Newsletter,participating in the welcome of people in the House of the Citizen and to manage animations in schools.
