4 reasons for joining one of our Fighting with the Poor programs


1.
You will be a hero, because within the huge gap between The Rich and The Poor, you take a stand and put yourself right beside The Poor.

2.
You will become a wiser person, because standing shoulder to shoulder with the Poor you will encounter many difficult situations and to be able to cope and to make a difference, it requires you to learn about and understand the bigger picture of the big question: Why do the Poor (still) exist?

3.
To teach is to touch lives forever. You will have the opportunity to develop deep and close relationship with both the people in your course and other at the college as well as with the people that you meet at your project in Africa.

4.
You will become mind strong and stubbornly patient in the process of creating development together with the Poor people in Southern Africa. To create positive and lasting changes in an environment with huge difference in culture, knowledge and understanding, you will have to do many different things to make it work. You will learn not to give up while dealing with many obstacles.

Why Vounteering? 5 reasons to become a D.I.


1.    “Experiencing a multicultural environment”
When you arrive in Lindersvold, you will find students and teachers coming from all around the world. Europe, Asia, America; each of us has a different and amazing background made by personal experiences, studies and culture.
In Lindersvold you will find THE place where these personal backgrounds become common, in order to know the world in a new and better way.


2.    “Challenge yourself”
Year after year, we create our comfort zone. A bubble where we feel safe, doing the things we know we are able to do and delegating to somebody else what we can’t do. During the program, you will challenge yourself, learning new skills, practical and theoretical. You will take the lead in many activities, discovering how powerful we are while not limited by these limits.


3.    “Learning by doing”
 During the program you will study. But this doesn’t mean you have only to spend hours and hours over a book. A huge part of the learning process will be done while mixing the theoretical studies with practical activities. Learning by doing is our motto: it means we learn also with observation and putting in practice the things we want to learn.


4.    “Travelling”
During the program you will travel a lot. You will travel while in Denmark to visit places, taking part in big events or organizing them. You will travel to reach and to work in the project you have chosen. During all these travels you will learn from different places, different cultures, how life could be way more different than we thought before starting the program.


5.    “Working shoulder to shoulder with The Poor”
During the program you will study why The Poor are poor. But you will also have the chance to meet them and to work with them. While at the projects, you will work and live the daily life with them, discovering their dreams and the fights they have to face every day.

5 reasons to travel as a volunteer

1) It is really cheap
If you like to travel economically cheap or even free, the best way to do it is to take part in an international volunteer organization. In fact, being part of an international volunteer organization, you can visit 5 or more countries in a year.
2) New friends around the world
It is impossible to not make new friends while being part of an international organization. You will meet thousands of people from all over the world and without noticing you will become friends with hundreds of them.
3) New experiences
When the international volunteer activities start you can say goodbye to boredom and monotony. With so many new experiences, for example making new acquaintances and traveling the world, things like boredom and monotony will disappear.
4) Find love
You did not find the love of your life in your hometown?! It’s nothing strange also it’s not impossible to meet your soulmate here- who thinks like you and enjoys the same things as you- because traveling around makes it much easier and faster to meet a person like you, it gives you more opportunities.
5) Find work
The volunteer activities may be very useful in finding work. Skills that you will conquer through the solidarity experience can help you improve yourself in the employment sector and after you can make a career out of it. All employers are normally attracted by the qualities of a leader and choosing to volunteer, you have already shown that you possess a lot.
