Our project takes place in Debrecen in the North-Plain region.
Description of organisation
Fresh Oxygen Foundation was founded by amateur runners in 2004 just to run together and discuss about this topic. The interesting was more and more and we „had to” organize a foot race – it’s called Oxygen Cup Forest Foot Race. It’s from October to March, one day in a month for amateur and professioanal runners. This year we start the 9th series. 500-600 runner comes to our foot race to be together, to develop its power. It’s not a qualification race, it’s a meeting point for people who considers the importance of the same values and has the same interest.
What are these values? Respect each other. Fair attitude. Honesty. Volunteering. Cooperation for a common aim. Why did we write it here? Because you will meet with this attitude during your EVS service. And we would like if you have similar thinking like ours. What is the project? Our project takes place in Debrecen in the North-Plain region. During the one year project we host 10-10 European volunteers from 5 countries (Poland, Estonia, Romania, Spain, Slovenia) for 2-2 months in two turns.
The aims are that the volunteers meet with the cultural diversity, learn tolerance, feel the social togetherness. Besides develop the labor market and the personal competencies, the language knowledge, build new contacts. Our goal to impact to the local community, promote the importance of healthy lifestyle and the running – as sport and hobby – and also the importance of interculturalism and the European identity.

1) Promotional activities: Activities what can help to reach the project aims and the promotion of Erasmus+ program (taking photos, making videos, writing blogs, Facebook updates…).
2) Program organizing activities: Planning, realizing and post producting actvities of the foot races and the closing ceremony (it’s just in the second tour in March). And volunteers can realize their own project what fits to their competencies.
