he project consists of accommodating women asylum seekers who are vulnerable, single or accompanied by children in 21 apartments. The team assists residents in the legal, social and medical fields. The objective is to give women maximum autonomy from their own capacity so that they are ready to leave the Logis and start an independent life. Volunteers will work with the team to provide individual support and carry out activities for residents. Their main role will be to guide, inform and motivate families regarding activities and meetings. They will also: – help organize daycare (babies from 0 to 3 years old) – co-animate & co-organize activities for children (creative & artistic workshops, sports activities,

ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT

The two volunteers will share an apartment within the Logis de Louvranges, this means that the volunteers will live in their workplace. They will share a kitchen / living room area as well as a bathroom but each will have its own bedroom. They will receive a travel card allowing them to access the nearest cities (Ottiginies, Louvain-la-Neuve, Wavre) & Brussels, located about 30 km from Louvranges. The volunteer will receive a monthly allowance (around € 300) for food and pocket money (€ 120). Keep in mind that the Logis de Louvranges are located in an ISOLATED area, there are few buses that pass.

TRAINING DURING THE PROJECT

Volunteers will receive pre-departure training by their sending organization before the activity. The volunteers will then participate in 2 ESC seminars organized by the National Agency (arrival and mid-term meetings) and in arrival training organized by the Coordination Organization during their stay in Belgium. In addition, training related to asylum policy and psychosocial aspects will be offered to volunteers depending on the opportunities. Possibility of taking French lessons if necessary.
