This project is bringing together 4 former Soviet Union countries - Estonia, Ukraine, Armenia and Belarus. While each of the counties have somewhat similar points history, they have nonetheless developed in very different paces after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. They all have different identities, culture, social background and experience. The organisations of these countries will either be with coordinating, sending or receiving organisations for youth exchanges, in this project specifically -volunteering. 8 organisations participating will either be coordinating - MTÜ NOORTEVAHETUSE ARENGU ÜHING ESTYES (Estonia); sending: MTÜ NOORTEVAHETUSE ARENGU ÜHING ESTYES (Estonia), All-Ukrainian Association for Youth Co-operation Alternative-V (Ukraine), Union Forum (Ukraine); or receiving: Võru Lasteaed Päkapikk (Estonia), TLK Ema ja Lapse Turvakodu (Estonia), Tallinna Lilleküla Turvakodu (Estonia), Republican Pediatric Rehabilitation Center (Armenia), League of Youth Voluntary Service (Belarus), volunteers throughout this project. NUMBER AND PROFILE OF PARTICIPANTS????? DESCRIPTION OF ACTIVITIES????? METHODOLOGY TO BE USED????? This project is aiming for closer and better partnership between these countries. With the help of the volunteers we are able to discover more closely how youth work and working with children in different aspects is done in their home countries which would then via the volunteers bring the knowledge, experience, methods and practices to the hosting countries. This, in the long run, should help all the countries towards a common future, where democracy and prosperity, a climate of peace, development of European values like individual freedom, democratic values, equality, tolerance, solidarity and the protection of human rights is cherished.
