A colourful day

After breakfast we had a few minutes to gain some power to be able to paint basically the whole town. After a few minutes of briefing, we started our journey to the places in Sacueni that had to be renovated. We formed three groups and we painted a bridge, some benches and some fences.

That’s Tuesday!

Fun fact – the morning started with a massage for everyone. At first we discovered what this project participants think about volunteering. By using platform www.menti.com they  wrote few words who associate with volunteering such as caring, happiness, humanity and adventures.

Day 2: Murderous Volunteers

What a die! Apart from everyone playing ’’The Murder game’’, trying to ’’kill’’ each other with random objects, we also spoke about the volunteering in our countries. Every country presented their own situation, discussing what is in motion and what the problems with volunteering in each country are.

Day 1: The Beginning of a Great Adventure

When life gives you lemons, make some lemonade; our team got the marvelous opportunity to be the ones to introduce the article of the first day, so we are gonna put on our big kid pants and make a fun one (hopefully). Even though we got to meet each other the night before, the officialities and the burden of the name-games fell on the shoulders of Sunday’s activities and as such, a bunch of foreign kids were mashed together into an Erasmus+ project to befriend each other.

Crafts’ Project is Over, but Crafts will Never Be!

The fourth Erasmus+ youth exchange of the Erhangja Association just ended on 13 May in Romania, where the main goal of the activities was to help the youth  discover the old crafts and turn them into a possible source of income.

The Erasmus Plus Programme of the European Union did support the that international youth exchange where 28 youth participated in a project entitled: Crafts of the Past, Crafts of the Future. The Greek, Hungarian, Lithuanian and Romanian participants got to know a new crafts on each day of the week, and they tried to find the motivations and opportunities to turn these crafts into a source of income. As a ’fountain of ideas’ they had their presentations about the national old crafts like making amber jewelry in Lithuania, the sponge fishing in Greece or the cart writhing in Hungary.

Pasta making

The history of homemade pasta goes back far into the past but it is rare that people still produce pasta at home. Fortunately, in Sacueni and around it, this tradition is still alive. Although homemade pasta consists of only four ingredients (flour, eggs, salt and some water), it takes a lot of time to make it as you have to be precise to produce nice and delicious pasta. If you use this easy recipe, you got the basics which can be transformed into different forms such as squares or snails.

Wood carving

Although wood carving is a traditional craft, nowadays it is not so popular and there are only few people who learn this profession. One reason for that may be the fact that it requires a great amount of practice and patience. However, during the recent years, this craft has changed a lot due to the technical advancements. It is true that machines have made it easier to carve wood but in this way, products are not unique and they do not have any emotional references.
