With the arrival of December, Christmas seems to be getting closer. With this is mind, our international volunteers organized online workshops with Colegiul Economic Pintea Viteazul in Cavnic where they shared their experiences of how Christmas is like in their home countries.
Passionatly, the volunteers talked about this special day in Spain, Finland and Portugal. The students were greatly curious and enjoyed also sharing their own costumes in their home country, Romania. We think everyone learned a lot today, and it is by getting to know other cultures better that prejudice is fought and tolerance grows. Towards the end of the workshop we played a kahoot game with the kids about the content of our conversation today. We hope the kids had fun!
Given the special circumstances, we understand it is hard to feel connected to eachother through a computer screen. With this is mind, we feel very grateful for the engagement that we felt today from the students!
