Gibanje za dostojno delo in socialno družbo (Movement for decent work and welfare society) is accredited EVS hosting, sending and coordinating organization. That means that we are able to host and send EVS volunteers as well as apply projects to the National agency.

In our organization we believe that by acquiring EVS volunteers we improve the foundations of our activities on both levels. Acquiring an EVS volunteer improve the dynamics of our work, because the volunteers bring in new energy, knowledge and views. We believe that it is very beneficial to host people from foreign organizations, because they bring in their objective thinking and a different view on the problems we face.  By coming into our organization, the volunteer is able to get to know similar organizations in Slovenia. Only the Movement covers several problem areas and deals with different themes and that is why every member has a chance to find a topic which is close to him/her. Our active members have experiences with different youth and other social activities and they can are an invaluable source of knowledge and good practice examples for the volunteer. We make sure that volunteers, sent for EVS via our organization, are given comparable experiences as volunteers hosted by our organization.

According to EVS we already had several project.

Darina Vorobyeva was a 1-year EVS volunteer at Gibanje za dostojno delo in socialno družbo. She was the first EVS volunteer in this organization. She came from St. Petersburg, Russia and was working on an EVS project called “Volunteering for employment” which was focused on fighting against youth unemployment in the EU and especially in Slovenia. Project was mainly dedicated to research and comparison of different approaches to employment policies in different countries. She has finished her project with presenting us with a firmly written report about what she has learned and achieved with her researches. You can read more about it on this link.

Olya Lebedeva came to Gibanje za dostojno delo

As a representative of her sending organization (»Sodrujestvo« in Russia) she came to Gibanje and learned how do we work, studied our best practices with the purpose to return back to her organization and apply our practices in it. According to this project she participated in the Tabor »Pogum za spremembe«. Together with one of our members she translated to English descriptions of Gibanje and its main projects so that now we can be presented to the possible future partners and she started to work on the Erasmus+ project – Youth training.

Natalia Chernova was also 1-year EVS volunteer at Gibanje za dostojno delo in socialno družbo. She came from the heart of the Tatar world – the city of Kazan and worked on a project called “Faces of precariat”. Project was mainly based on researches of the problem of precariat work in Slovenia and how this problem is widespread in other countries. During her time in Slovenia she also worked on a project called Global jobs challenge. The point of this project was to invite young people from other countries who can share with us knowledge and experiences about precariat work from their cultural environment. The event took place in a beautiful city called Strunjan.

She also took part as an actor in performance called “Zaigrano delo” which presented in a several regions in Slovenia different shapes of precariat work in a labour market. Her project ended with a film she made, called “Faces of precariat”. You can see it attached at this link.
