Quality education

Education was conducted on a principle of equality. Students and mentors from Ukrainian Academy of Leadership who trained youth from villages were the same age with participants. The training had a great effect and actually changed the children’s vision on education. The youth implemented their own projects using practical skills and knowledge obtained during training. The implemented initiatives gave a boost to rural population. Through engagement of young people, local authorities and population began actively implement changes through mini-projects.

Sustainable cities ans communities

Young people became involved in development of their region and took responsibility for changes, demonstrated leadership skills. It was a drive force for other village people. The projects were joined by local authorities (giving funds) and adult members of communities (help with arrangement of territories, etc). Thus, the partnership project contributed to the creation of other partnerships: youth and communities, local authorities.
