learning by doing
- national educational project of AIESEC in Ukraine for students and recent graduates based on “learning by doing” concept, international experience, which is aimed to get and implement project management skills.
It was awesome project in autumn (15th of October – 15th of December) and beautiful interns took part in it – Rosen (Bulgaria), Christian (Germany), Basma (Morocco), Barna (Hungary), Małgorzata and Dawid (Poland). They helped Ukrainian students to organize such projects as: exhibition Paralleli, professional conference and quest “Euro’12 Kickoff’”.
Excellent r esul ts: 4
1. Project of Chris and Rosen “Euro’12 KickOff” won the prise “The best project of act.in.UA”
2. Olya Yermak, OCP of act.in.UA is the national coordinator of second wave of this project and agenda manager for act.in.UA track on conference for new interns!
And more details about second wave of this project. It’s th realization will start 11 of February and it will be a lot of fun and experience for all participants to 30th of March. Now OCP is Max Serduk. And we have three new interns in our LC for this project: Chris (Brazil), Inola and Nika (Georgia)!
World without borders
World without borders project is an alternative education for high-school students that will help pupils to develop their soft-skills. WWB aims to break stereotypes of highschool students about other countries, share with them traditions and culture of different nations, develop culture
First wave (25 th November – 16 th January) OCP of this project Olya Cilyk won the campaign “The best of ICX project”, because she did beautiful project with 11 interns from different countries Misha (Georgia), Ivan (Colombia), Kenneth (Singapore), Adam and Sarah (China), Peter (Egypt), Rosen (Bulgaria), Tien (Vietnam) and guys Brazil – Nina, Eliza, Yuri. During their internship local conference “TtT” (Trainer the Trainee) was held, meeting of interns with our EB, session “Emotional intelligence” by Misha Tsaguria (a lot of girls were present and our dear matching coordinator – Sergei Gromovoi).
On 23 rd of January the 2 nd wave of the World Without Borders project started …
So what about the second wave?
-We asked OCP, Sasha Sikorska : What was the main idea of the 2 nd WWB? The main idea of the project was that foreign volunteers were delivering trainings for Ukrainian school students on the leadership, project management, time management topics, discussions on cultural and social topics.
-Who participaed? Eight schools have taken part in the project, i.e. #296, 28, 128, gymnasium “Erudit”, “Vsesvit”, “Scandinavian gymnasium”, “European college” and Boryspil gymnasium “Perspectiva”. In general, about 250 students were listening to trainings from volunteers. The trainers for the project came from all the parts of the world. And they are: curly Sera from Turkey, dancing Caio from Brasil, smily Kivanc from Turkey, childish Andrej from Slovakia, David that solves Sudoku from Brasil, Indah – a girl with a Chinese blood, born in Indonesia and lives in Australia, Bingxi that came here just for two weeks but for great changes from China, curios Min from Malaysia and probably the kindest person in the world – Ahmed from Egypt. The project lasted for 6 weeks and every single day of these 6 weeks were amazing, changeable, unforgettable for organizational committee and interns as well as for students.
-Was it worth it?) As for now the project is over and the interns have left home. But thanks to interns, the students, that have taken part in the project, learnt a lot, opened new cultures and traditions, made new friends. The best thank for me, as an organizational committee president, were the following words from Valeria, 9th grade student, school #296: “As it is said, THIS IS IT! Tomorrow is the first day without our interns( but we really want it to last forever. How everything started! Nervous teachers, our trembling hands and smiles to the ears. It was really cool!”
-How was it to be an OCP of this project? In the end I would love to say that being the OCP is really hard, sometimes it just exhausts you. BUT, exactly this experience, when you are responsible not only for realization of the project but, what is even more important, for the people (interns, OC of the project, students) makes a person braver and teaches the life. So don’t be afraid of changes, organize, create and everything will be amazing and unforgettable!
Children's Path is an educational and entertainment project for children from orphanages.The project was conducted by five interns Kostantinos (Greese), Karanveer (India), Prinka (Indonesia), Ivan (Serbia), Guilherme (Brasil), Su (South Korea) during DecemberJanuary. Each lesson they made together with the children virtual trips around Ukraine. While "travelling" they played exciting games, developed their communicative skills and made their first 7
steps in learning English. "Children's Path" is a project that gives joy and motivation to those who really need it. It's all about love, it's all about friendship, it' s all about hope!

I w ill never for get all of this childr en! I t's an incr edible feeling w hen you k now that you changed their lifes even a bit. When i r emember the w ay how they w er e look ing at me even now it gives me hope and inspir ation...Guilher me
Nastya Dubchak, OCP of Children's Path: “Now, when 1 month has passed since the project came to its end and my interns left I wouldn't say that "Children's Path" was a part of my life. I wouldn't say it because of one simple reason: the project was MY LIFE. My children, my OC, my interns it is how I'll forever remember the winter 20112012. I think I wasn't able to express my feelings before and I think I didn't tell my interns that I love them. And I'm right now listening to Pink's song "...I forgot to say out loud how beautiful you really are to me". Well, I know, this song is about love and relationship and so on. But what I want to say is that I forgot to say out loud how important you are to me, and that you are heroes in a very special way, and that you changed me and you changed hundreds of people you met here, in Ukraine. Thank you, friends.”
