Let’s Do It! Lithuania Seven-year activity report

About Darom

Our organisation is strong and unique because we have no age limits. Our volunteers have the ability to actualize themselves no matter their age, qualifications and skills. PI “Mes Darom” or just DAROM is kind of platform, which gives the opportunity to develop already gained skills and to get new ones. Every volunteer can actualize himself/herself in various fields, such as communication, law, environmental protection, management, project management and administration, international affairs, human resources, etc. From now on the core team consists from various fields professionals, who find their way during volunteering in DAROM. This year organization set ambitious goals for itself. This year we’re starting with new initiatives: “We Are For Clean Sea!”, “Save Neringa” (saving Curonian Spit after huge fire) and “National DAROM Forum” together with our partners. We are also creating team of experts in environmental field. We already established DAROM alumni club. One of the most important events this year is “National DAROM Forum”. During this event all actions’ DAROM organisers will be gathered (volunteers and institutions) in one place and all together will make decisions about this action and it’s future. For the first time all related groups will decide when cleanup is going to happen in 2015. Furthermore, various environmental problems will be discussed and solutions made. Later, it’s being planned the auction, during which all raised money will be used for improving and creating new environmental projects in Lithuania. Finally, without already ongoing initiatives in environmental field, we are also creating new public spirit and volunteering programs. Their start is planned for 2015.
