Aim of the event: 
  • Raise Awareness
Goal of the event: 
The main goal of the event was to emphatise and understand people with walking disability by playing "Sitting Volleyball". We also aimed to show our participants how difficult it is.
Short description of the event: 
We decided to organise an event in our International Week in Çağ University. We had 10 German guests and we invited them to our event. As ESNers, we explained the reason and they had eagerly wanted to take part in it. At the end, we were 30 people including our local members. First, we played volleyball, standing. Then, we sat down and started to play sitting. It was really hard for some of us to catch the ball, but 10 minutes later everyone learned and got used to. When we finished the game, we repeated the reason and thanked them for their participation. Our German guests were also thankful to us for our effort to raise awareness for disabled people.
How did your event go?: 
At first, it was difficult to play but then, it became an entertaining activity. At the end, we learned how difficult is to play a game sitting.
