123 Sun! Entertainment for Children in disadvantaged areas of Charleroi
Description: Following an assessment made in 2015 in Charleroi, two observations were made. The first was a desertification of activities in the outlying districts of Charleroi. The second was the fact that many children never left their neighborhood during the holidays and that there were no organized activities for them. Based on the movements "Streets reserved for children" (France) and "Play Street" (UK), the project "1, 2, 3 Soleil!" was born in the city of Charleroi. The point is to go down in the street, in collaboration with Charleroi's association network and citizens, in order to bring to the children activities that they are not used to do or shows made by artists they are not used to see...
Type of Work: Volunteers will help with the logistics and the organization of the different days as well as the animation of these days: organization of large games, sports activities or board games with children and their families.
