About Incoming School Project 2020

Every year, SCI Germany invites 10 volunteers from countries in Africa, Asia, South America, and the Middle East to so-called “Incoming School Project”. 5 volunteers from Germany will also take part in the project. This year the topic of the school project is: “Ideas How to Create a Just Future for All”.

The current crisis of the pandemic COVID-19 has been alarming us all globally. The virus as a threat to health itself and the actions taken by our governments in order to avoid the spreading of the virus are highlighting social and global injustice. There is no access to healthcare, precarious working conditions, limited civil liberties, etc. These are a few examples of injustices mentioned above. From there we came up with questions: How can we create a just future for all? How do we want to live? How can we protect our environment? Etc.

This school project is a training seminar and school workshop to share volunteer’s wishes for the future and develop ideas on how to create a just future for everyone on the globe. Also, it is about volunteers’ experience, which aims to give them an understanding of youth work in Germany. Additionally, volunteers will learn and be exposed to intercultural learning during the project. There will be experience exchange of lifestyles, how electricity is generated in volunteers ‘ countries, and if/how they and their communities are affected by climate change. GREAT is to recruit one female or one male volunteer as a candidate, to have further selection process with SCI Germany

Objectives of the training:

1. To promote a dialogue between people from different regions in the world and break down prejudices and stereotypes.
