organization: Union of Students of Abkhazian State University

place: Sukhum

year: 2011

The aim of the project was to support the development of the volunteering among the local youth, mainly students of Abkhazian State University. Young students have taken part in workshops about the volunteering. Workshops have been concluded by the launch of the platform for volunteers. The platform strengthens the cooperation between the volunteers and the organizations and facilitates the easiness of their contact. There has also been a presentation of the platform to some interested organizations.

Along the year 2011, there has been around 50 volunteers that took part in the event. Except of the beneficiary activities for the existing non-profit organization, they have started some new project intentions, for example – organization of the cultural events for the house for the elderly.
