On 22 August 2016 in Kyiv, UAct team gave a training to the participants of the “Kids Leadership Camp”, a leadership and social responsibility development programme of the International Charity Fund “Everybody Can“.
This initiative trains 12-16 years-old students in leadership, creativity and contributes to their personal growth and development. Children share their dreams and implement social projects that they jointly develop. The Leadership Camp is unique as speakers, who have launched Ukraine’s most successful social projects, tell their success stories and give advice to children.
Dariya Bezugla and Julia Zelvenska, UAct co-founders, talked to children about human rights and diversity, how to be different and to live together. Their interactive sessions encouraged critical thinking in children on human rights, freedoms and their history around the world. Dariya, Julia and the young participants also discussed discrimination in our societies and its effect on how we perceive ourselves and the others.
“Being a part of the Kids Leadership Camp is an opportunity for UAct to understand the reality in which our young people are living and developing, and to grasp their vision of the world” said Dariya Bezugla. We provide them with tools for success of their projects and happy lives, self-realization and self-confidence. We talk to them openly, encouraging respect and mutual trust. Our organisation is grateful to “Everybody Can” for the opportunity to contribute to this important educational project, which we hope to develop further together”.
Yevgeniya Talinovska, the project’s co-organizer, emphasised that children are the most valuable treasure of the Kids Leadership Camp. She explained that the participants are internally displaced children, children of the Ukrainian military or children from the large families. “Developing a socially responsible society, charity and philanthropy is the mission of “Everybody Can” and my personal aim” said Marina Lysak, the director and co-founder of the Fund.
