Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

The location is Western Ukraine. This area is subconsciously perceived as strange or hostile in Eastern Ukraine. The familiarity with the culture of the region returns to women from the zone of the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine belief in the main laws of humanity and open the way to real life.

Where will your idea take place?

Volovets, Western Ukraine, Sloviansk, Eastern Ukraine

Why does Europe need your idea?

Europe needs a new experience with the problems of overcoming the interdenominational collisions, outbreaks of aggression in the economically unprotected European countries, especially during the recession that causes a wave of emigration. Our example shows the so-called "new-old" approach: to affect by means of the modern methods the future society through the women, to facilitate the upbringing of children in the spirit of the European values: self-responsibility, awareness of the purpose of one’s own essence, overcoming xenophobia and the gap between social groups, the desire to reproduce their land in the European context. We believe that the devastation begins at the head. Therefore, we consider it necessary make a contribution to upgrading of the old consciousness deconstructive past

What is your impact?

The success of the project is to perform the full scope of the program during the training and further communication with the listeners for 3 months. The project aims to involve about 160 women from the zone of the armed conflict directly, and about 1000 people in general (including the positive impact on children, family members, friends). The organizers will believe that they have changed the situation for better if they could affect at least 4% of 29,000 people who are registered in Sloviansk social government agencies as IDP (internally displaced person). Our mission is to increase this percentage through the influence on participants of the training that will be envoys of the good and peace, specific advocates of humanistic approach to life in the Eastern region and Ukraine as a whole

How do you get there?

The project will be realized in the countryside Volovets of Transcarpathia region of Ukraine from 29 June to 22 August, 2015. For the implementation of our ideas we have already started to communicate with the local, regional representatives. We have conducted an experimental training for women and have received positive reviews and results. It is developed the necessary documentary base and the communication system of dissemination of the information through the social networks. It is developed the detailed program with the plan, guidelines, additional didactic materials, which has received positive reviews from the experts of psychological direction and state social workers. It is started the data collection about Donbas women, who need our help, and their questioning.
