The problem we are trying to solve:
Our future is held in the hands of our children. It is very important to keep this in mind.
Lack of good education, lack of opportunities to raise the cultural level, lack of mutual understanding and tolerance will give society a collapse. Perhaps I expressed my thoughts incorrectly, but I think that we need to do more good things with young people and for young people, so that there are fewer problems.
The solution we are proposing:
We will be able to help adolescents and young people to give new knowledge, show new opportunities, teach new soft skills.
It will make their future better. They will be able to get a new opportunity for choosing a profession and self-sufficiency. They will begin to communicate more with peers from other cities and countries. They will have perspective.
I propose to create a cultural and educational centre in a distant village in Ukraine. More than 500 young people under 30 live in this village. We can make an educational course on financial literacy, on starting your own business, on social entrepreneurship. Because the young people there do not know about such opportunities. To give them new cultural professions related to creativity, artistry. Last year we invited an artist from Europe to this village. He made creative workshops for teenagers. This was a great success. After that, several children are seriously engaged in painting.
What success looks like for us:
We have been working for over 5 years. Our experience, feedback, mentoring support for the young people we teach, analytics give us the opportunity to observe the results of our activities.
Where we are are based:
Funding we are applying for:
$14,000 - $15,000 per year
How this funding will help us achieve our goals:
This funding will give us the opportunity to invite musicians (beatboxes), performing arts coaches from other countries, who have authority for such children. Guests will be able to conduct mini trainings and master classes, teach new professions, about which they now know nothing. Then, more children will see their talents and prospects.
How this funding will strengthen our group:
This funding will enable us to purchase the necessary equipment to conduct training for young people. Also, expand cultural and partnership ties with other countries.
How we gain by being a Spark Fund partner:
Support networking and empower. Learn and share experiences both locally and globally.
How we would like to spend a grant through the Spark Fund:
I want to purchase the necessary equipment for the teaching process - a laptop, a projector, a projection screen. Invite modern coaches for performing arts, beatbox, art and creative works.

The most important is the head of the organization. But, all issues are resolved at a general meeting of youth.
I am leading the youth. I am an older friend for them, who helps them make fewer mistakes, because I have a lot of experience.
