Hello to everybody,
At first, a great thanks that you took some of your precious time to have a look at our website about the topic discrimination. You might ask now what made us decide to take such an apparently difficult and vast issue. Our main target of this project is to encourage people to raise their voice against any kind of discrimination. We all tried to act as a role model, especially in the term of racial discrimination, to set up an international team with regular members from Romania and Germany. But this has not been everything, at all. To receive some more insight out of first hand we also established a network including people from all over the world, especially in the hotspots we illustrate here. The “core” team consists of five classmates from the city of Craiova, Romania: Ana-Maria (16), Eduard (16), Laura (17), Madalina (17) and Nicoleta (16) as well as one member from Germany: Marco (19). The team was coordinated by Ms. Laura Coravu. Collaboration was not only based on regular communication through the Internet, using messengers or others, but has also been highlighted by a personal meeting in Craiova on Christmas 2007. The teamwork communication was mainly in English and even with such a language restriction, we all did a phenomenal job together. The meetings created set milestones we all wanted to reach, allowed us to share ideas and tasks, which we eventually accomplished. In addition we had a lot of great help from natives from all over the world like Rwanda, Germany, Israel or the USA to tell us their stories and experiences. The opportunity should be taken to thank all the people who supported us with great first hand information.
We believe that we all had to do something to inform more about the sometimes underestimated subject of discrimination. We are glad to find the opportunity to show our intention and willingness to encourage people with our ideas in the contest of the ThinkQuest organization. It has also brought an extremely valuable cultural experience to us as well as learning a lot of new details, a thing that ThinkQuest is dedicated to, about discrimination. We hope we could share all this with you and make you feel a little bit encouraged to stand up against discrimination whenever it occurs. Therefore our appeal on you is to raise your voice, do something, go out and begin to fight all the injustice on earth. Something, many people will eventually thank you for ...
