To live according to the democratic values ​​of dignity, freedom of choice, respect for the individual

The problem we are trying to solve:

The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has brought unexpected changes in people's lives. Isolation has led to increased levels of conflict in families, tensions with the environment.

The level of domestic violence has risen sharply. Women and members of their families with disabilities are particularly affected by forced isolation.

At the same time, the city is home to people who have significant achievements in sports, science and art. These people could inspire others by their own example, influence their emotional state, show the perspective that life is not limited to the walls of the house and what to do now, what skills and abilities to master to be successful = happy.



The solution we are proposing:

The aim of our project is to reduce the negative impact of the pandemic on the emotional state of young people and women with disabilities, their families by promoting the example of prominent people in the city who will provide practical advice on constructive behaviour in isolation and self-isolation.

In the process of project implementation we will create a communication platform for young normative people, people with disabilities, and people who contribute to the socialization of people / children with disabilities. We will give examples of the history of defeats and victories, introduce self-training techniques and anti-stress methods, learn how to run your own blog, which will promote the solution of inclusion problems and the possibility of earning and self-realization that will spread the experience.

The project "Stars nearby: own example, inspiration, emotional support" provides 20 training meetings (once a month) with 20 star motivators and 20 therapists who will offer various anti-stress techniques + skills to run your own blog to create professional content to cover social issues. Conducting an information campaign on the project. Final meeting - celebrations of the project completion.

Project participants are 10 young people whose professional activities are related to working with people / children with disabilities (students of pedagogical and social spheres, teaching assistants in inclusive classes, and junior medical staff of hospices) and 10 young parents with children with disabilities.

Now the project "Stars nearby" exists only online, where we acquaint Facebook and Instagram users with the experience of young stars of Vinnytsia. However, now it is a passive project, as the audience of its readers is limited by the number of subscribers and acquaintances.

What success looks like for us:

Our project starts locally, but its dissemination with professional skills will go to the global level, as it aims to disseminate the experience gained on the Internet. 20 young project participants will learn to create professional content on important social issues. We will be able to monitor the implementation of training skills on the Internet. The circle of communication of normative and people / children with developmental disabilities will unite and expand.
