The second phase of training and information of volunteers took place on Friday, March 10, 2017 at the offices of the Association.
The main objective in the second phase of training was to inform the volunteers about the operation and the actions of The "PERPATO" Association and the Center and to raise awareness of the participants in the part of disability with which they are invited to come in constant contact with the members of the Association. The training included two main strands :
- the first part (informative part) included experiential activities in order to facilitate group collaboration and bonding of the participants but also the interaction between them by offering stimuli to express themselves freely.
- in the second part (practical part) the participants were trained in methods of transportation, transfers and everyday life of disabled people (to and from the bed, use of a wheelchair on uneven ground, ramps, stairs, etc.)
The large number of volunteers that characterizes the Association "PERPATO" is the driving force for the organization of more and more actions. The Volunteers of the association are considered the heart of its actions and cover one of the most important pieces of operation and development of its needs and actions.
