Stowarzyszenie Projektów Międzynarodowych „INPRO”

United we Shine

United we Shine is a project implemented in Rzeszów. The aim of the project is to develop interpersonal and intercultural competences among young people as well as among the organizers of activities – volunteers.

Currently, volunteers are organizing their own projects aimed at educating young people about interculturalism, equality, and human rights.

Volunteers visit schools where they promote the European Solidarity Corps program, talk about their countries, or organize workshops on culture, human rights, travel opportunities for youth, and volunteering.

This project is the last project funded by the Erasmus Plus program as it was approved before the European Solidarity Corps program started. That is why it is open only to the Erasmus Plus program countries volunteers.

Currently, we have been hosting the following volunteers:

Miki Sanchez has a migrant background and he grew up in a stateless southern European nation (Catalonia). He tries to be a good person and that is why he would like to be involved in the protection and promotion of human rights. He came to Poland to be a volunteer in an NGO because he strongly believes that, since we are all going to die, it’s great to leave a positive footprint in the world and work for a purpose and not for an economical gain. He is also quite an expert in hitchhiking, having gotten rides in 4 different continents by car, boat and even by plane.
