Those who constantly monitor our activities know that the Good Deeds International Charity Foundation develops rapidly. Our team organized more than 500 socially useful activities, including 300 mini-projects, 30 large-scale events and supported more than 80 partner events, etc. With the purpose to find more new friends and like-minded people for the realization of creative, sometimes crazy ideas, the Good Deeds ICF announces the opening of the Centre of Social Initiatives
Current situation in Ukraine is quite complicated: the economic crisis, social and psychological instability, fall of living standards of the population, devaluation of norms and values in society. These problems had great influence on psychological and moral health of all social groups, but most serious on those who need social, psychological and material assistance. Unfortunately, in our country the level of funding for social services is not a model that leads to quite logical consequences: lack of qualified social workers. Therefore, it is vitally important to spread volunteer movement in Ukraine and involvement the wide range of different population groups. But, even the volunteer movement become a large scale, there some problems that thwart its progress. One problem is lack of knowledge of methods volunteers work with vulnerable groups of people, organizing efficient, secure voluntary activities. The project is aimed at solving this problem by creating educational and training centers for volunteers in Ukraine. In centers volunteers will learn project management in the social sphere and implement their own initiatives.
The project is going to be implemented in two stages:
25 volunteers from all over Ukraine will be trained under the program “From Idea to Action” and implement projects aimed at solving the problems of vulnerable groups, with the support of Good Deeds provided through small grants .
20 volunteers trained at Kyiv Center of Social Initiatives before and 5 volunteers selected on a competitive basis from all over Ukraine will be trained under the program “Create your own Center of Social Initiatives” and implement projects on creation of regional centers of social initiatives. Each of the centers during four months will have to develop and implement 15 social projects, aimed at solving the problems ofvulnerable groups, and present the best ones for the competition for a mini-grant, which will be hold by charity foundation the Good Deeds.
Thus 375 social initiatives will be implemented and 400 volunteers improve their competence in work with socially vulnerable groups of the population.
