Since October 2015 Amaka has been participating in the E.U. program “E.U.R.O.P.E. – European Union Rapprochement for Offenders and Pupils Education” aiming at offering activities for youth at risk , prisoners, social workers & volunteers working in environments of confinement.
The goal of the project is to strengthen the European identity of these populations and increase their engagement in the European civil society issues. This will be achieved through specialized training and creative workshops addressed to both these vulnerable groups as well as to employees of the penitentiary sector. The project will involve various working methods like training sessions, seminars, art classes, ex-convict testimonies, creative workshops, radio broadcasts, exhibitions & publications adapted to the different target groups.
Leader of the project is the Polish N.G.O. Collegium Civitas
and the rest EU partners are the Slawek Fundation (Poland)
and the Ηungarian N.G.O Valto Sav
The opening of the project to the public is to be announced to the public on March 2016.
