Learning by Doing

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

At our learning center, you will live, learn and work with people from all over the world. Through exchanging ideas and experiences, we create a rich cultural life and diverse atmosphere. The Volunteers and teachers share the responsibility of running the center together, by using consensus-based decision making when implementing new ideas or developments for the future.

CREATING CHANGE TOGETHER

At the 12-month Pedagogy for Change progamme you will share your passion for sports, art, music, nature or something different with young people at care homes or specialised schools – for 10 months.

The last two months you will travel and explore Europe with your team while you learn more about the reality for the people you meet.

SHORT COURSES

2 – 5 weeks

In the summer months you have the opportunity to join shorter courses where you can experience community life, enjoy the “white nights” of Scandinavia while you immerse yourself in an area of study that interests you.

In the summer of 2021 we offer three intensive courses packed with action and hands-on experiences – a 5-week Theatre Course and some Pedagogy for Change 2-week courses.

Pedagogy for Change

12 months

The Pedagogy for Change programme offers 12 months of training and experiencing the power of pedagogy – while you put your skills and solidarity into action.

Studies and hands-on training takes place in Denmark, where you will work with children and youth at specialised social education facilities or schools with a non-traditional approach to teaching and learning.

Sara from Italy

DAPP MALAWI - Preschools

"We worked with a pedagogy that understands the necessity of having different teaching approaches for different students, that pushes them to be conscious and critical about what they study, and that emphasizes the ‘learning by doing concept.’’

our partner and their projects

HUMANA PEOPLE TO PEOPLE

The Federation of Humana People to People operates in more than 30+ countries and works to create development through projects within the fields of education, health, community development, agricultural training, relief aid, and income-generating activities. The organization has more than 35 years of experience and are currently working with more than 350 community development projects

Agriculture

The Farmers Club Project: this project promotes climate smart agriculture techniques through demonstration plots. These Demonstration plots are supporting organized groups of 50 farmers to experiment with farming techniques, aiding farmers to take the new knowledge back to their land and increase their crop production.

The clubs also enable farmers to increase their livelihood by selling together as a group; this strengthens farmers ability to negotiate more fair prices while giving them access to potential finances and therefore building their capacity for sustainable agricultural practices.

teacher training

Teacher Training and Preschools: The Teacher training programmes are specifically designed to train teachers for public primary schools, especial in rural areas where there is a need for teachers. The programme strives to offer inspiration, action, research and experimentation, often providing challenging pedagogical routes that serve students, teachers, school institutions and communities alike.

 

Community Development

The Child Aid Projects: this project supports children, parents and the whole community to work together to improve living conditions for children and create opportunities for them to not only survive but to develop to their full potential. Child Aid is driven by the community and seeks place control of the development processes and decision-making in the hands of the people who are affected.

 

 

Health

The Zambian Family Activity Project: this project aims to support orphans and other vulnerable children in Zambia, who are affected by HIV and AIDS. The project aims to improve conditions for children by promoting income-generating activities, giving nutritional help, and supporting children’s education.
