Civil Society Union “All-Ukrainian Association “Alraid” gives the young people every opportunity to take the initiative, and they eagerly do take it, generate new ideas and take part in educational events (seminars, conferences, trainings etc.)
The skills they gained at different team-building workshops and trainings are practiced on the spot, which resulted in the situations where more and more projects are initiated and implemented by the youth, even teenagers sometimes.
The East Fest is of the most shining examples of such initiatives. Despite the fact it was launched only several years ago, it already became a sort of landmark for Kyiv Islamic Cultural Centre, and visitors ask if the date of the next festival is known yet as soon as they enter the acting one.
Through the years, we held:
- 46 trainings for the youth
- over 200 summer camps and children’s clubs
- 7 chess tournaments
- 8 flash mobs concerning sensitive issues
- numerous events representing culture of different ethnic groups of Ukraine
- 3 scale festivals called EAST FEST.
Besides, we hold children’s summer camps, camps on school holidays during the academic year, and scouting trips for teenagers.
