WHAT IS ” YOU CARE- YOU SHARE 2.0″
According to the demographic studies 15.32% of Ukrainians are people over 65 years old, which is around 6.9 million of the population in general. The country takes the first rank in the world in terms of the natural decline of the population. Around 91.000 of youngsters in Ukraine are in orphaned or are educated in the specialized establishments for children with disabilities. During recent months the situations have worsened due to an unstable economic and political situation in Ukraine. Thus, we would like to focus on those categories of people who need extra support and care.
Last two years the Hosting Organization “CENTER FOR EUROINITIATIVES” works in promoting volunteering and empowerment of young people through the net of charity events. A short-term volunteering project “YOU CARE – YOU SHARE” which was successfully implemented in 2018 showed the high demand of the group volunteering projects. “YOU CARE – YOU SHARE 2.0” is a result of the cooperation between 6 organizations from Portugal, Poland, Italy, Latvia, Bulgaria, and Ukraine.
The project’s idea is to engage European youth into developing a charity campaign in the city of Sumy which aims at organizing events for disadvantaged youth, children from specialized establishements and eldery house made in the cooperagtion with local volunteers, Network of school euroclubs, CEI Volunteering Club. European volunteers will team up with local volunteers and work jointly at all stages of the project. The mixed team will develop the project from scratch to the stage when it requires minimal coordination and is sustainable.
