Start date: Feb 1, 2011,

The idea of the project "Women,Creativity, Culture" was born over a cup if tea out of conversations between young women their moms and grand-moms. As it turned out, what our rural commune offers women to enhance their growth and to enable them to pursue their plans is absolutely not enough. Many young girls deal with the problem of unemployment and low entrepreneurship. Young mothers have no place where they could meet and practice their hobbies as an alternative to staying home with children. Elderly ladies feel useless and lonely although they have skills that they could share with others.Project workshops will be open for all women from our rural commune.Goals:1.To encourage entrepreneurship, encourage women to set up their own businesses-drop in unemployment2.To build up women’s self-confidence and courage them to realize their ideas3.To enhance women’s creativity though practicing handicraft skills4.To enable the elderly women to share their skills though teaching local handicraft5.To promote multiculturalism6.To create a mother-friendly place7.To integrate women from different villagesGoals will be realized though active participation in the workshops:EntrepreneurshipDiscovering our abilities and skillsCookingCulture and Creativity: painting on glass, sewing, making jewellery, Health and Beauty: makeupGood shape: aerobics with dance First AidResults:1.Integration of the women coming from different villages, development of collaboration for the benefit of the local community2.Increase in self-confidence 3.Bridging the generation gap4.Preserving local handicraft 5.Preserving the tradition of women gatherings6.Rise in women’s vitality though physical activity7.The participants will become familiar with movies from out side the mainstream without having to leave their village8.The participants will meet people from India and will have a chance to find out about their customs9.A photo-exhibition, titled: Happy Women-Beautiful Women
