Everyone needs to take good care of health throughout a life. Maintaining and improving health is an important part of the work carried out by the Green Cross in Ukraine under the international SOCMED program with the financial and coordination support of the Green Cross Switzerland. One of the main tasks is to raise a healthy younger generation. In recent years, the state of health of children has been constantly deteriorating, therefore it is extremely important to create conditions that ensure their social well-being, physical and mental health.
In order to increase the organizational capacity of school business incubators, as well as to develop skills and disseminate knowledge among student youth and teachers, classes, practical trainings and online lectures in the field of modern organic agriculture and entrepreneurship are being actively carried out. The first study tours of groups from neighboring district educational institutions are organized to visually learn more about the processes of growing organic products, the technologies used and the difficulties that schools face while implementing promising business ideas and startups that include a social component in their activities.
Dear and respected veterans,
Dear liquidators and residents of the legendary and unique city of Slavutych,
Since 1999, we have been invited to take part in the city's events dedicated to the Chernobyl days to commemorate the tragedy that happened on April 26, 1986 near the city of Pripyat.
However, for more than 10 years no one has invited us, but it is our pure wish to come and visit with our partners from different countries and friends.
The conflict in Ukraine has forced thousands of people to flee their homes and seek refuge elsewhere. In connection with the current situation, the government of Ukraine is carrying out coordination work, providing social support and protection, medical assistance, social and psychological rehabilitation. IDPs receive assistance primarily from local authorities and public organizations. There is an urgent need to continue to address issues related to housing, provision of food, hygiene, clothing, employment assistance, as well as informing and consulting on possible assistance to IDPs and legal assistance, in particular in the restoration and processing of documents.
One of the main tasks of modern education is the acquisition of relevant knowledge and practical skills to realize one’s capabilities in the face of constant and rapid changes. A promising area of activity is entrepreneurship in the field of organic farming.
An example of successful work in the Zhytomyr region is the Vyshevitsky Lyceum, which was identified as the pivotal educational institution in the implementation of the EU4Youth project “Network of Business Incubators “ School Garden”. Within the framework of the project, thanks to the support of the donor and partners, a 260 sq.m. greenhouse was built, which serves as a platform for obtaining practical training and improving production skills in the preparation of graduates and obtaining blue-collar occupations, as well as obtaining additional material resources to improve material and technical base of the Lyceum and its cooperation with other educational institutions.
