August, The Month of New Activities

This month are some new projects:

Me, Rita, Marta B. and Noémi are working on a Cinema outdoors in Donetsk!
The idea is too provide people the opportunity to enjoy a movie night away from walls, being in direct contact with the nature under the stars. The idea is too present movies with some historical background.
At this moment we are working on the place where this activity will take place and soon we’ll come back with more news as dates, exact place and movies!

As a Alliance group, we are all working on a event to celebrate the 15th Birthday of our organization. Read the rest of this entry

This last weeks have been very interesting. In starting of July I attended an Economical SummerCamp in Svetagarorsk, which lasted for 5 days. During this period we had to make a presentation about our own countries and we performed many and diferent activities including lectures, nature walks, an excursion to Svetagorsk monastery and lots of interesting parties!

Regarding Alliance, we started to work for the birthday that will happen in September. At the same time, I started research on other projects. I went to Lugank to talk with the head of a planning related NGO ( ), and I inteed to participate in a conference about the topic of public access to Planning that will happen next week.

3 More Months and Off We Go

ImageIt seams unreal how 4 months had already past. The time is flying by and we already passed the middle mark of our service.
Now that the summer is here Donetsk looks like a new city… so much prettier. The fountains are working, there are flowers everywhere, people are showing more skin and smiling more, the streets are now more busy with people that are no longer hiding inside from the cold and it’s now really pleasant to spend the hole night by the river side with friends and see the sun rising at 4am.

PR Team

Alliance has now a PR team lead by Irina Lavrik and the volunteers Victoria, Anna, Gabriel, Hazar, Irina, Remzi and myself.

Our role is to develop Alliance’s webpages so more people can have access to what’s going on in our organization.

I am personally responsible, with Hazar, for the English version of Facebook and we’re still working on the information that’s going to be posted.

Stay tune and you will see the difference also here, in our Blog!



Last week Alliance gave us the opportunity to take part in SALTO training: 3 days of workshops about EVS. The workshop was held in a school in Donetsk, not far from our office.

Since it was held during the weekend none of us (the “old” volunteers) were excited to attend the event, thinking we already knew everything about EVS. But, despite our mood, it was a real unexpected success and it was a good occasion to get to know the new volunteers who joined our project. Let’s also add that the good weather helped us to be least for the first day. We were ready to welcome the spring.. but we would have discovered soon that the weather had cheated us!
