Project has got certificate “Project for a medal”

Project has got certificate “Project for a medal”

Project “Start Now” was positively evaluated by the experts’ board of Institute of the Third Sector and received the “Project for a medal” certificate.

The idea behind the “NGO Certificate” Program is to disseminate knowledge about Polish NGOs, to promote their best activities and projects, and, as in the case of the distinction entitled. “Project for a medal” – promotion of the best initiatives undertaken by non-governmental organizations.

The certificate honors the work of the authors of the Project, highlights the benefits that the Project brings to its recipients/beneficiaries and promotes the idea of acting for the benefit of others. It is also proof of social trust.

We are very grateful for rewarding and appreciating our work.

Our third international meeting came to an end

Our third international meeting came to an end. We have spent 5 amazing days together in Larnaca on Cyprus. This time, the organizer of the meeting was Social Policy and Action Organization. Thanks to that we have moved on with modules in our project: “Start now!: Strategic partnership for health promotion among youth”. 

The main meeting was held between 20.10 and 24.10 of 2017. During those days we have focused on improving our work on the innovative non formal education method in the frame of health education. Moreover we have finished introduction for publication and we have presented 2nd chapter – about non-formal education in general. We also talked about project promotion and preparing training course in Poland, which will be held in March 2018.

We have spent lovely informal time in Larnaca. We had a great possibility to feel and fall in love in Cypriot culture and cuisine. We have gathered together in Greek tavern, where we have tasted “meze”- a selection of many different regional dishes such as: greek salad, sheftalia, souvlaki, pita and many others. Everything with accompany of traditional live music. We also have a possibility to visit Nicosia – headquarter city of SPAO and little sightseeing this big city with cozy streets and lovely Greek homes.

This project is organized in the frame of Erasmus+ KA2, between 3 partner NGOs: Social Policy an Action Organization from Nicosia, Cyprus, Bulgarian Sports Development Association from Sofia, Bulgaria and Health related Organization for Promotion and Prevention from Opole, Poland as a project coordinator.

First international meeting behind us

First international meeting behind us

Just a week ago, we have finished our first international meeting, which was held in Opole, in Poland, between 21st and 24th of April. During that get-together, we have officially start our project, frame of which is ERASMUS+ Programme with Key Action 2: Strategic Partnership between European NGOs.

During those intensive, but very resultful days we had managed to set formally our partnership by signing internal agreement between our organizations. We draft future steps and plan timetable of the rest of our project, which is originally planned for almost 2 years (till the end of 2018). Now just after this superb meeting we are truly believe that fallowing two years will be outstanding for our partnership and the final outcomes will exceed our assumptions.

In few words our project’s main idea is to teach young people about health. But we would like to do it rather by giving them tool for non-formal learning, than just presenting facts and clues, like it is commonly in health education. For this purpose, we invent an innovative method of non-formal education based on modules system. And now, after project started, we will work on that method to make it easy, useful and, what is most important, interesting to youth.

Background of our partnership is strong cooperation between our organizations that now have lasted from 3 years. During this gathering, we have got to know each other even better. Bulgarian team was represented by Joanna Dochevska and Kalinka Gudarovska, Cyprus – by Ifigenia Katchie and Konstantina Katsie, HOPP – by Martyna Jaros and Piotr Jaros.
