Eye: the exciting experience of Ruben and Genesis in Naples 1325 747 pjasocial

Ruben and Genesis are two new Spanish entrepreneurs who took the opportunity to participate in the Erasmus for young entrepreneurs (EYE) program here in Naples. They stayed in FoQus for 4 months, where they were welcomed by two highly experienced Host entrepreneurs. First of all, Renato Quaglia, director of the FoQus Foundation with extensive experience in the field of art and territorial development. Then, Simone Maria Da Conceicao, president of the MUNI association for almost 10 years, which is hosted within the FoQus structures and deals with the promotion of social solidarity and civil rights. Ruben and Genesis were accompanied by these two hosts but they also had the opportunity to collaborate with many realities in the area.

Here’s how they tell their story!

We decided to go to southern Italy (Naples) with the Erasmus scholarship for young entrepreneurs, with the support of ILÊWASI, ONGD in Valencia, which works to provide a better community for young people, and Project Ahead in Naples.
It is a very enriching experience since it allows us to learn all those aspects of an association focused on education. The Foundation in which we are working is called FoQus and is composed of more than 10 associations and entities, all related to social empowerment, formal and non-formal education and art.
Furthermore, we have the opportunity to continue gaining experience in the different areas in which we specialize. Rubén applies his knowledge in agriculture and the environment and works with young people at risk of social exclusion; while Genesis puts into practice his knowledge of psychology and social inclusion projects.

We are discovering people and activities that we have never had the chance to discover before. For example, we participate in elementary school and preschool summer activities by participating in excursions to museums or cultural sites. We are also collaborating with the Argo association helping them in the events and training activities they organize for disabled young people.
Finally, it is interesting to know another perspective and a different way of working from another culture “.

Ruben and Genesis have been very active, taking part in activities in many different organizations. They were proactive, always proposed ideas and made recommendations to improve this beautiful community which is FoQus. They will soon be able to return home with new skills, ideas and an additional perspective on their project.
