Association for a United Community and Social Intervention -ACSIS volunteer report:

“When I started volunteering, I didn’t know exactly what to expect, but in my soul there were thoughts and desires related to that, but I didn’t know to what extent they would get real. Now, after 5 months, I can say that I was very lucky, because I discovered a united team of wonderful people who have accepted me very easily and from whom I learned a lot. Though most people think that through volunteer we give back to a community, they forgot that it’s not a one-sided relationship, at any instant you offered and invested, you get back. Whether it’s a child’s smile or a mother’s who feels that tomorrow’s worries press a little less on her shoulders.

This volunteering gave me multiple opportunities for both personal and professional development. Professionally, I got the chance to live experiences and to have responsibilities that my field of study postpones. I had the opportunity to assist at workshops and mother focus groups, to get involved in a necessary project for our society on the topic of trafficking in persons in schools and colleges, to attract children in educational activities. I learned how an NGO works, how much effort and dedication is hiding behind each project. On a personal level, my life optics has changed; I received valuable lessons from mothers and children enrolled in the program. I have seen mothers for whom every day was a fight with overwhelming worries, who kept smiling and didn’t let to be seen not even a fraction of the sad story that lied behind.

I learned to work in a team, I learned to adjust myself to unpredictable situations, I’ve learned how much it weighed commitments, I’ve learned how much children’s wisdom is worth and how much can reward a hug or a look full of thanks of a mother.

In conclusion, I can say that I would recommend this experience to anyone who is willing to grow personally and professionally. My advice is to find a soul project in which to invest and results will not delay to occur and become an engine for a new budding”. (Larisa Stirbu)

Like most of you, I often came upon people who were more than willing to be judgmental or rude towards single mothers who didn’t have the necessary means to support their children. Time and again, the same hard questions arise: ”What made them stay in such abusive relationships?”, ”Why did …

I have learned that the powerful person is not the one who reaches the highest social status but the one who, even though he/she has been through the storm of life, manages to keep on fighting without losing the hope for better. The opportunity to become a volunteer for ACSIS …
