The 18th of July 2009 was established as the international Nelson Mandela Day, through a decision made by the UN General Assembly. Why? Because the Mandela Day is a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world and the ability to make an impact:  “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead”. Nelson Mandela.

This is the video made during the Balkan study trip in the framework of the project "A Route to Connect", a project of SCI, supported by European Youth Foundation focused on spreading awareness about the refugee situation in the Balkan route, giving a voice to the stories of refugees and empowering youngsters to take action. The project is part of the Building Bridges campaign
One of the main activity was a field trip to the Balkans.
This video has been made and edited by the EVS Volunteer of Balkan Hotspot, Lorenzo, Alexandre, Pedro e Carmen. Thanks guys!
