The project:
“Centre Couleurs du Monde" is a refugee centre of the Belgian Red Cross. At a time it can host up to 190 people who asked for asylum in Belgium (for the moment, thanks to the new Belgian politic of immigration, only 115 people lives in Rendeux). Their stay in the centre is temporary and lasts until the necessary documents to stay legally in this country are ready and their refugee status is proved.
Centre provides such services as accommodation, food, educational courses, medical and social help, cultural, sport events etc.
One of the most important point is that the centre can grant for inhabitants is international exchange not only between themselves but also between them and volunteers from all over the world. That is the main purpose of the camp – intercultural exchange by way of work.To learn more about the Centre you can visit a page at Red-Cross web-site –http://www.croix-rouge.be/activites/solidarite/asile-et-migration/les-centresde28099accueil/couleurs-du-monde-rendeux/
The project 2014 will be the 6th in the history of the Centre. Previous years were successful and were a source of an enthusiasm to go on.

Work:
A mix of environemental “work” & animation with the youngest refugee (0 to 18 years old). Most of the time : construction of a garden for vegetables & aromatic plants (basil, mint, parsley…). In the evening : prepare some activities for the children of the centre (handicraft, sport, games..feel free again)

Accommodation:
Accommodation will be provided in the Centre itself – 2 rooms per 4 volunteers each. Every room has its own bathroom and toilet, but still very simple. The rooms are exactly the same as residents’ ones; but can be provided if there is enough space for people who asked for asylum, who have a priority for accommodation. Smoking and alcohol drinking inside is strictly forbidden.

Food:
Food will be provided, relax – no cooking! Good news if you do not like pork – due to some of the refugees do not eat that, it is not cooked. If you keep a vegetarian diet – you are welcome as well, just let us know.
