In the frames of long-term project “Mind games in the infospace” Lidiia Kozhevnikova, who is representative of Charitable Organization “Joy of the Childhood” from Lutsk and Dmitriy Kvasha, who is representative of NGO “3C” from Kiev have used their chance to go and visit organizations of other participants from the training course, that took place in Kiev.
Our first destination of exchanging experience and sharing the ideas was beautiful city of Chernivtsy.
Our new friends kindly showed us the historical parts of the city, which we found very beautiful and calm.
After the sightseeing we were kindly invited to the Polish lessons at the university where volunteers from Poland are teaching people who want to improve their language skills. That was a new experience, because it was our first time being at Polish classes.
After the Polish lessons we had the opportunity to meet the heads of local NGO “BARD”, that deals with volunteering, tourism, ecology and sustainable development of the city of Chernivtsy. In non-formal communication we shared the projects and initiatives between our organizations.
10/12 – visit to Lutsk
Next day, 10th of December we arrived to Lutsk, to meet with the local organization “Foundation of society development”. The organization deals with human rights, sustainable development of the society and etc.
We have met the heads of this NGO and took a part in the marathon of writing petition letters in support of people, who`s human rights were violated.
After it we went to visit NGO “Joy of the Childhood”, which deals with youth empowerment and social activism, women empowerment and children.
We had a chance to join one of the charity initiatives of the NGO, that called charity workshop “Christmas Postcard”, where we made creative Christmas postcards for sell. This money will help a little girl to become healthy.
This is our postcards, we have made in Lutsk.
And after all the planned activities we had sightseeing tour in ancient city Lutsk.
