Internship at Mine Vaganti NGO, Sassari
This Autumn I have had a chance to be intern in Mine Vaganti NGO, a non-governmental organization based in Sassari, Sardinia, Italy.
Sassari is second largest city in Sardinian island. Sassari is a city rich in art, culture and history, and is well known for its beautiful palazzi, the Fountain of the Rosello, and its elegant neoclassical architecture, such as Piazza d’Italia (Italy Square) and the Teatro Civico (Civic Theatre). As Sardinia’s second most populated city, and the fifth largest municipality in Italy it has a considerable amount of cultural, touristic, commercial and political importance in the island.
Sardinia attracts many tourists coming to the island because of its beautiful nature, beaches and warm climate. I have never before seen such beautiful beaches in Europe before coming to Sardinia, although I have travelled across Mediterranean countries and islands before.
“Mine Vaganti NGO” (MVNGO) is a no-profit organisation born in Sardinia in 2009. MVNGO is an educational training provider at local and European level. MVNGO has a consulting for public and private bodies in order to promote and develop European and trans-continental projects in Youth/Adults/VET/HEI/Sport Sectors.Key areas in which Mine Vaganti NGO participate are intercultural dialogue, social and green entrepreneurship, sport as a tool of education and inclusion of migrants and people with disability.
Throughout my traineeship I was involved with the work that Mine Vaganti NGO was doing by implementing workshops, planning activities, monitoring web-site content of Mine Vaganti NGO, managing Erasmus plus projects, doing research analysis of new, potential projects for the organization, cooperating with international partners of the Mine Vaganti NGO and etc.
Whilst my traineeship, there were many other international trainees in the organization, from such countries as Greece, Poland, France, Turkey, Romania, Portugal, Bulgaria and etc. It was a great pleasure and experience to work together with people from all over Europe.
Overall it was a great professional and social experience for me and I would do it all over again if I could.
