Project “Guide For Emloyment”. Review

Review of one of the participants of the training, Tatiana: “I recently returned from training” Guide For Emloyment “, which took place from 23-30 May in Bakuriani, Georgia.

I can easily say that it was one of the best week of my life since I gained a valuable experience and new impressions. Such projects allow you to meet different and undoubtedly interesting people from other countries. They have created the atmosphere of warmth and openness, that we felt every day. During the cultural evening where each country presented itself, we learned as historical and contemporary facts, tasting traditional dishes and drinks.

Every day we learned something new, how to work as a team, listen to lectures, presentations on how to write a resume, cover letter, how to put SMART goal in our lifes. We were able to improve their ability to present themselves, because we had his own “moment of glory” that, within one minute of each participant made a report to the public.

Unforgettable impressions left a visit to a school in Bacuriani where we conducted classes for children, because they are as open and sincere that I wanted to help them and just spend time with them.

We not only learned about Erasmus +, but also learned how to write our own projects, so I am convinced that one day we will make all our plans come true.

I am very grateful NGO «Rodyna», which was given the opportunity to attend such an interesting and useful project where you acquire new knowledge, new friends and practicing your level of English, which is equally important. “

Project “Discover countryside via being active”. Review

One more fantastic summer is coming to the end but I am not sad (!), because it has brought me a lot of positive unforgettable moments, exciting friends, crazy adventures and priceless experience which I will never forget.
I am particularly fascinated about a wonderful week in Estonia July 21-28 where I participated as a team leader in Youth Exchange “Discover countryside via being active”. This event gathered 32 extremely motivated, creative and active participants from Estonia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Ukraine, Germany and Italy who became my close friends and my inspiration. The YE helped us to develop our inter-cultural, social and dancing skills as well as built up competences in rural entrepreneurship and organizing outdoor activities. To tell the truth, I have never thought that I can be good at pottery or blacksmithing, upcycling or bread baking, hiking in Estonian woods or preparing teambuilding activity. The project gave an opportunity to step out of my comfort zone, experience challenge and happiness of discovering something new in diverse international community, with different points of view, ideas, cultural and social backgrounds. I have learnt how to put up a military tent, how to speak primitive Estonian, how to play new board games and get lost in Tallinn. The project also gave me an awesome chance to meet old friends and see how my ideas about healthy lifestyle project were implemented.
I am so delighted that I represented Ukraine and our NGO “Rodyna” on such a stunning project and I hope that more and more positive, curious and super active youngsters will take part in such events, broaden the horizon and make new friends!

Children who do not speak have received voice thanks to the “Auchan for young people”

Children who do not speak have received voice thanks to the “Auchan for young people”

NGO “Rodyna” from Kyiv has received support from the Foundation “Auchan youth” in the project alternative communication “I`ve understood” for children with complex disabilities in the development and for those who don`t speak!

One of the most important human needs – is communication. Imagine that we have closed our mouth and we have no way of verbal express our needs or bring our mind. In this situation, we will seek our actions to draw attention to ourselves and others near us, most likely, it will be some destructive behavior or movements. Persons who live this way from childhood and have no other way to express in our country, unfortunately, are considered “moron” … No one asks why and how you can make a difference in what way to offer an alternative. Children with severe disturbances in their development and can`t speak, doomed to unanimous opinion of doctors – “it`s a plant “and let it live in a closed special care institutions.” These children are “unpromising” in our country.

But we, the parents from NGO “Rodyna” who raise these children don`t thing like this. We have the opposite opinion! Our children are wonderful and they have the right to live in society, have the right to study and learn alternative ways of communicating and interacting with the world! Unfortunately, we can`t wait another ten years for changes in the approach to the rehabilitation of children in Ukraine. So we teach them by ourselves.

Fund “Auchan Youth” supported our desire to give these children a chance to communicate and be adapted to the society and environment with maximum level of comfort. Children can learn how to speak on special plates which have necessary software for their comfortable existence outdoor and in the social field. We will show by our own example for the doctors and other parents that to give kids a chance – means to change the quality of life and eliminate doom!

If you are faced with similar problems, be sure, you are not alone! At the store “Auchan” which is on the st. Velika Okrujna 4, Kyiv, we have created a number of social events that create positive change at this stage of life of children and their parents. Parents learn how to go out into the world with the child, without regard to the views of humiliating others. Children adapt to society and to the various activities.

For example, these children and their parents are shopping, bake cookies, paint pictures, make surprises with volunteers from the store. All these little events lay in the minds of children to a positive experience and fight against the fears of the unknown. And now when we are going to “Auchan” the whole crowd of children expects only the best there.

We thank the Foundation “Auchan youth” conscious of their social and corporate responsibility. Because the organization supports presents and believes in an opportunity to improve the quality of life for our children. Thank you!

We invite all concerned people and companies to join the social development of further measures to create new opportunities and destroy harmful stereotypes of our society. Let’s spread the idea and be kind to the world!

Each partial to this problem sincerely invited to be a volunteer.

Art events in “Ashan”

The trip to Ashan for our children has become a joyous event. They know that only rewarding occupation is waiting for them! So it was this time on 14 February. It was a special day, a day of tenderness which inspired creativity and positive. To detect such emotions 2 pictures were prepared for children in which they worked with great enthusiasm and painted from the heart. Fun colors, pain which was pleasant to the touch that and we went from kid`s palms on canvas, mixed up and poured in new colors. It was impossible to detach children from the process. Then artists removed the stencil and we saw: silhouette of city with flying angel and a picture with the logo “Auchan”. After drying our volunteers artists fail the final touches and unique masterpiece is ready. These paintings will be donated to “Ashan” and in their opinion may be sold at auction.

Dear Philippe, Ms. Constant, Sir Alex, Mr. Dmitry all employees and volunteers are sincerely grateful to you for the best event! For photos we are thankful to Ms. Marina Jaremenko, Director of photosalon “Tsifra”! See you soon, dear friends!

Project “The right of being human”. Review

A project «The right of being human»  was attended by youth workers from Portugal, Great Britain, Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, Belarus, Austria, Italy, France and Moldova from 27 February to 8 March 2015 in the beautiful town of Nardo, Italy,

In the theoretical part of the project we reviewed and discussed all the categories of human rights, the real situation of human rights in each of the participating countries. The emphasis was placed on the rights that people neglected and which really honored. We also visited the public organization «Rinascita», which was the organizer of the project, met with three interesting people, refugees from Palestine, Iraq, Sinegal. They were talking about the hard life in their country, why did they leave it and  started a new life in Copertino, Italy. Their stories absolutely amazed all of the participants; extremely difficult to understand all the pain of these people.

In the practical part of the training, we had an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with the basics of photo and video art. For many of us this process proved to be quite complex and required more dedication, we had to work late into the night to create a video . On the last day, the participants organized a flash mob in the main square of Lecce, the idea was to draw public attention to human rights, to comply with them and struggle.

Great news!

Project “Dance for Europe”. Review

Project “Dance for Europe”. Review

Youth Exchange “Dance for Europe” was one of the most interesting and at the same time the most intensive projects I have ever participated in, because our main objective was to create a friendly team and intercultural dialogue due to my favorite activity and hobby – dancing. After seven days living together, sharing experiences, cultural features, original ideas, and colorful folk dances 40 extremely different people have become a big family. It took a week on the project for serious Germans to get closer to inflammatory Georgians, “hot” Spaniard to sensible Estonians, good-natured Czechs to enchanting Ukrainians, and even warring Azerbaijanis and Armenians became best friends. The project has become a little life, every day we had an opportunity to visit two countries at once. During intercultural evenings each country was representing a unique colouring, charming folk rhythms, dances and tasty traditional dishes and drinks. This project gave me an unforgettable experience as a choreographer, because our team conducted a workshop with Rock and Roll and Hip hop, then we embodied this choreography in Georgian school. Volunteering at school – is another key aspect of the project, because we were able to share everything that we have learned to bring joy to gloomy walls of poor rural schools. You can`t explain you how much positive emotions we received from young dancers who presented Georgian folk dance as an appreciation! There were a lot of emotions raged during skiing, as youth exchange took place in Georgia Bakuriani which is ski resort. This youth exchange gave me a lot of positive, memorable experience and faithful friends, thank you “Rodyna” for this great opportunity to introduce Ukraine at this wonderful project!

Project “The cadre of change”. Review

“For all the participants youth training «The cadre of change» was the first training session. Erasmus + is a program that is funded by the European Commission. Its main aim is to strengthen the cooperation between youth organizations and young people from European countries .Ukraine was represented by three members – Alex from Zaporozhye (student programmer), Varbara from Odessa (student-ecologist), Vlad (teacher, historian).

The main objective of the training, which we have visited, was to learn how to create photo and video about the problems that are important to young people. Therefore, the program was very intense. But this training does not seem to be the same as it is in schools and universities … In non-formal education there are no marks, no one should you, the main thing – it is your interest and purpose. And though our training was complete, but at the same time, incredibly interesting: we had games and exercises for team work, quests, many practical tasks.

On the last day of the training we organized a flash mob in the center of Chisinau (in front of the Government House :). After it we presented our video library. So our project ended with traditional Moldovan dinner and tour.” Vladislav Ivchenko
