Conditions

The reason why we ask for a financial contribution from all of our volunteers and interns is because we aim to provide all of our projects for free to the local communities. These financial contributions make up a large part of our income to cover our operating costs. You can look at the contribution rates here http://otracosa.org/volunteer/contribution/. We believe our rates are pretty fair compared to rates other organizations in South America ask for. We also hold transparency extremely important so you can see where our contributions go in our Annual Reports. We will have 2019's report up soon. I know it seems kind of unfair to ask for a financial contribution when you offer your work for free but a lot of the contribution goes to the support system we offer such as airport pickups, weekly lunches, and fun weekend trips.

Volunteer in Sri Lankan Village with Horizon Lanka Foundation

Sri Lanka Teaching

Horizon Lanka Foundation is a non-profit organization (registered as a Guarantee Limited Company) located in Mahawilachchiya, the rural outskirts of Anuradhapura, the most ancient city of Sri Lanka. It runs academic programs for students in rural villages in Sri Lanka. The student body is made up primarily of local children who come to Horizon Academies after public school, during weekends and public school vacations. The Academies teach English, Information and Communication Technology, science, mathematics, fine arts, and sports to the children. We also train the children in skills such as presentation, public speaking and personal development. In addition to these subjects, students learn much more. Thanks to our dedicated staff and the hard work of local and foreign volunteers, the students also learn important life skills such as interpersonal communication, intercultural communication, tolerance, leadership, caring for others and the environment, sustainable development and teamwork.

The Horizon Lanka Foundation is a pillar in the local communities and works with them to improve the lives of all involved. We do this by assigning our local and foreign volunteers to assist the local public schools during morning sessions as Horizon Academies do not open during mornings except for school holidays and long public school vacations. Our ultimate goal is to empower rural youth so that they may work towards improving the conditions of their community as well as the surrounding communities.

Игротехническое погружение

Санкт-Петербург, Россия Teaching

Обучение состоится в середине февраля 2020 г. в Санкт-Петербурге, оно будет проходить 2-3 дня. На нем мы разберем теорию игротехники: принципы образовательной игротехники, классификации игр, игровые инструменты, подбор формы игры под задачу и т.д. И затем будем практиковаться и создавать группой пул социально-экологических игр для севера Европейской части России по результатам работы экспедиций в регионе.

В числе игр будут и настольные игры, и игры живого действия, и коммуникативные - на любой вкус, в зависимости от темы и задачи каждой конкретной игры.

По итогам проекта по каждой успешной игре мы соберем "коробки" - доведем игру до полноценной формы, в которой ее можно использовать дальше без нас (то есть любой может взять игру и сыграть/провести ее по инструкции).

В качестве просветительских материалов можно использовать брошюры и буклеты, учебные пособия и инфографику, мультфильмы и образовательные игры.

Программа для вас будет состоять из трёх частей:
1) введение в результаты экспедиций, проходивших на севере европейской части России в течение 2019 г.
2) обучение созданию игр на экологическую и социальную тематику - “введение в игротехнику”;
3) выезд в один из населенных пунктов Архангельской/Вологодской/Мурманской области с целью проведения игровой программы для местных жителей (учеников школы и/или взрослых).


Сроки: ориентировочные даты обучения - 14-16 февраля, выезд в населенный пункт - в течение 2020 г. (по согласованию с местными жителями)
