“Good Deeds Week”

We continue to remind the citizens that only doing good will make the world better. We all always hurry somewhere, and sometimes do not notice what is happening around. We proposed citizens to escape from their everyday worries, to stop for a moment and to look around at the world and to see that it is beautiful! The volunteers handed in colorful balloons to which were attached some colorful candies and cards with wishes to the passers-by. In our city there is a brand new tradition to help not only financially, but also psychologically to all those who need it, expecting nothing in return, Thereby we are proving that doing good often does not require any material investments. Doing good things should be permanent, but in the International Day of Good Deeds want to have time to do more.

“Let’s make Ukraine clean”

In recent years, the nature of Vinnitsa region suffered heavy losses, which are connected primarily with ineffective taking care of the environment. The main reason of this dangerous phenomenon is a low level of environmental awareness and culture of the society. The main objective of the project is the formation of cautious relation to the environment in mind of younger generation. This is one of the components for formation of patriotism sense. The project “Let’s make Ukraine clean” consists of activities for landscaping and environmental cleaning. Volunteers have made several activities within the framework of the project. They have cleaned the territory of forest-park, the Jews memorial, the territories of schools and kindergartens.

World Day of Volunteering «J-Serve Day»

April 17, 2016 in Vinnitsa and Kazatin there were held unusual Festivals of creativity. The organizers appealed to the inner world of each person, because the movement of the soul is traditionally expressed both in arts and in help to the needy. Creative atmosphere was created by a master of hand-made. Volunteers had the opportunity to learn how to make beautiful souvenirs and postcards during the master classes, and then to give them to the children and old people – members of the community. Or they could just have a nice coffee and sweets. For children, the volunteers held an entertainment program and games. Also for the first time there were held trainings on the topic “Conscious volunteering”, in which was discussed what is volunteering and how to begin to do good deeds. The purpose of training was to show the importance of volunteering for the society, to attract new volunteers to the activities, to form a habit to do good deeds and to fulfill the commandments, such as Tzdakah and Hesed.
