Vo nasoka na vtemeluvanje i promovirawe na pozitivnite i vistinski vrednosti kaj lu\eto nasproti dominantnite koi se materijalni i svetovni, NotifY timot re[i da vovede u[te edna interesna rubrika koja veruvame deka ke bide interesna za ~itatelite na NotifY koi gi ima vo celiot svet. Na[ata idejata e preku nekolku poraki, od vreme na vreme vo ramkite na ovaa rubrika vo NotifY, da potsetime za pravilniot pat koj treba nie site da go odime i da mu go poka`eme istiot na site koi [to sakaat da go doznaat. Za taa cel otpo~navme i sorabotka so Makedonskata Pravoslavna Crkva od kade [to od sega pa natamu, za ovaa rubrika ]e koristime materijali .

Isku[enijata [to gi dopu[ta Bog se soodvetni na na[ata izdr`livost. No za `al, mnogu ~esto kon niv se dodavaat zajadlivite [egi i bezrasud nite zborovi na nemilosrdnite lu\e, taka [to toga[ ve]e gorime.

AND NO W: ABOUT SPIRITUALITY 1 minute dedicated for YOU In direction of establishing and promotion of the positive and right values among the people vs. the dominant ones, which are materialistic and secular, the NotifY team decided to prepare one more interesting heading, which we believe that it will be interesting for the NotifY readers all over the world. Our idea is with few messages, from time to time through this heading within NotifY editions to remind the people about the right way on which we have to walk and to show it to all who want to know it. For that purpose we have started cooperation with the Macedonian Orthodox Church from which we'll use the materials in this heading from now on.

The temptations which God allows are appropriate to our endurance. But, it's a pity that very often to them are adding the sarcastic jokes and malicious comments of the merciless people, so then we already burn. The strong wind usually brakes the thin trees and uproots the low roots trees, and to the deeper root ones helps them getting deepen even more. Elder Paisios the New of Mount Athos

FIELD GR OUP MA CEDONIA Still enthusiastic! As usual, February is the month in which the Field Group Macedonia is happening. It was held in Skopje from 22-24. At the Field Group attended representatives from Denmark, Norway, USA and YMCA Europe. Because of various reasons absent were the chairman of the Group from Italy (who was substituted by a representative from Macedonia), as well as representatives from France and the neighboring Bulgaria and Greece. The meeting went in atmosphere full with conversations for previous activities of three local YMCAs in Macedonia, as well as activities that are forthcoming in Macedonia (organized and led by the local Macedonian YMCAs), as well as in YMCA Europe. Obvious progress in the development of the local YMCAs in Macedonia was noticed and prized by all participants on the meeting and they were encouraged to continue with the equal tempo on the road that have already traced, the road of the YMCA family that works throughout the world for more than one and a half century. In the contexts of this, unusual was the contribution of Robert Lomauro for the development of the discussion in the Field Group. As a partner (of YMCA Skopje) who comes from USA, he directly had the opportunity to see how YMCA Europe cooperate with the Macedonian National YMCA and in that frames were discussed in details all aspects in that relationship, extended in the level of the Balkans, and even exceeded on common satisfaction of less guided members of the Group. He also offered himself to YMCA Bitola to help with contacts with a local YMCA in USA. From the other side YMCA Europe presented the forthcoming festival in Prague and pointed out the planned activities during the festival, as well as current activities about the organization and preparation. This was interesting to be heard, with regard on fact that Macedonia beside the participation in the festival, will also have chance to contribute by filming it from a "volunteer's point of view". Also it was discussed about the Status of the Macedonian National YMCA on the road to membership in YMCA Europe and forthcoming meeting of the Executive Committee of YMCA Europe. Necessary suggestions were given by Michael Schumanczak/Deputy Secretary General of YMCA Europe.

TH VI TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF YMCA BIT OLA

2007-ma najaktivna godina vo kratkata istorija na IMKA Bitola

2007 the most active year in the short history of YMCA Bitola

Nekolkumina se sretnavme so idea da formirame organizacija vo na[iot grad, so cel da napravime ne[to pove]e za gradot, da vklu~ime i aktivirame pove]e lu\e, da go iskoristime na[iot potencijal i znaewe, da u~estvuvame vo op[testveni i me\unarodno korisni aktivnosti...i vo 2000 god. se rodi IMKA Bitola. Prvite sostanoci gi odr`uvavme na otvoreno, vo gradskiot park vo Bitola, no seto toa ne ne spre~uva[e da prodol`zime ponatamu, entuzijazmot be[e golem. A, denes... ubavo uredena i opremena kancelarija i pogledot po~nuva da [eta niz zidovite koi se izlepeni so fotografii od razli~ni nastan, vo razli~ni vremenski periodi, po golem broj na posteri od razli~ni konferencii, seminari, rasporedi na aktivnosti - kolku ubavo ~uvstvo! Iako poslednite godini ne bev aktivno vklu~ena vo aktivnostite na IMKA Bitola, povremeno se informirav za slu~uvawata na organizacijata glavno preku NOTIFY izdanijata i internet stranicata, od kade [to mo`e da se pro~itaat mnogu interesni storii i da se vidat mnogu interesni nastani. Na 7-mi Mart 2008 god., se odr`a 6-toto Generalno Sobranie na IMKA Bitola vo prostorijata na IMKA vo Bitola, na koe[to i jas bev pokaneta da zemam u~estvo. Vo tie nekolku ~asa se ~uvstvuvav prekrasno pome\u tie mladi lu\e polni so entuzijazam, `elbi, ambicii, idei, planovi, predlozi... Gledaj]i go Godi[niot Izve[taj za 2007 godina, prezentiran od Pretsedatelot na IMKA Bitola Viktor Iliev, istovremeno se navra]av i na na[ite po~etoci vo 2000 godina. No, koja li razlika se napravi! Godi[niot Izve[taj be[e prezentiran so slika i tekst za sekoj nastan od kade [to mo`e da se vidi deka sekoj den e ispolnet so aktivnosti, sekoja nedela sostanoci so zaklucoci i planovi, mnogu proekti, prezentacii, u~estvo na golem broj manifestacii, konferencii, formirani pove]e timovi koi rabotat vo razli~ni oblasti... Posebno bev iznenadena od toa [to go napravil YMOVIE timot, pesnata za IMKA i od drugite nivni tekovni proekti. Taka i zavr[i Godi[noto Sobranie - so prezentirawe na idnite aktivnosti na IMKA Bitola za 2008 godina i so planovite za idnite proekti, kulturni nastani i zabavi, izdanija, konferencii...

Few of us meet with idea to form an organization in our city with goal to do something more for our city, to include and to activate more people, to use our potential and knowledge, to participate in community and internationally useful activities... and in 2000 the YMCA Bitola was born. First meetings we held on open, in the city park, but all that didn't obstruct us to go further, the enthusiasm was big. And todayÂ… nicely arranged and equipped office, and the view starts to go around across the walls on which there are attached photos from various events in various time periods, huge number of posters from different conferences, seminars, schedules - what a nice feeling! Although last years I wasn't actively involved in YMCA Bitola activities, I occasionally informed myself about the happenings in the organization mostly through NOTIFY issues and web site, from where it can be read a lot of interesting stories and see lots of interesting events. On 7th March 2008 it was held 6th Annual General Assembly of YMCA Bitola in which I was also invited to take participation. In those few hours I felt wonderful among all those young people full with enthusiasm, desires, ambitions, ideas, plans, suggestionsÂ… Seeing the Annual Report for 2007, presented by the President of YMCA Bitola Viktor Iliev, in my mind I went simultaneously to our beginnigs in the year 2000. But, what a difference was made! The Annual Report was presented with photos and text for each event from where it can be seen that everyday was full with activities, every week - meetings with conclusions and plans, lots of projects, presentations, participation on many events, conferences, formed several teams that works in different fields. I was specialy surprised and impressed by the work of Y-MOVIE team, the song of YMCA Bitola and their other current projects. And thus ended the General Assembly - with presentation of future activities of YMCA Bitola for 2008, and with plans for the future projects, cultural events and parties, issues, conferencesÂ…

EMER GING NEW ENTHUSIASM The 4th Local YMCA in Tetovo - Macedonia brings new energy within the Macedonian National YMCA movement In the second half of 2007 after long years of working in the community and sharing the YMCA spirit, YMCA Tetovo decided to officially register as fourth local YMCA in Macedonia. The main core of YMCA Tetovo contains around 15 young people from Tetovo, young people with great experience in working in the NGO sector, P2P education, creating and managing projects. This group of young people is the driving force that pulls YMCA and makes it recognizable and respected in the community through working with other local NGOs, cooperation with the Tetovo Municipality and many of the local schools (elementary and high) and kinder gardens. The main reason and objective of YMCA Tetovo is creating a stronger community because we believe that is the only way to overcome the differences and separations that exist between the young people in this region especially after the conflict in 2001. We are convinced that these enthusiastic goals of YMCA Tetovo are realistic and can be accomplished together with our friends and our community. YMCA Tetovo finds that the only way to do this is through creating an active and creative youth, youth that will enjoy to work with people from other nations and religions, youth that would like to overcome the differences that exist and that will face and solve the problems that come with the time, so our slogan is "Active Youth, Strong Community". The next thing on which YMCA Tetovo is concentrating is the promotion of the organization at the "EXIT" festival in Novi Sad, Serbia from 10-13 of July. We see this as a great chance for spreading the YMCA spirit, creating a larger network of friendly NGOs not just from Macedonia, but from the region also. At this point we are waiting for an answer for our applications, but our hopes are great and we feel that we will be accepted. All in all, being YMCA is really fun and gives you a chance to look on the world and the problems with different eyes and not just look at the problems, but also encourage you to become active and try to solve those problems.

IMKA MEKADONIJA VO EVROPSKOTO SEMEJSTVO Po 8 godini rabota, IMKA Makedonija od sorabotnik na IMKA Evropa stana nejzina ~lenka

2008 ke bide zapametena vo istorijata na IMKA Makedonija kako godina vo koja organizacijata se zdobi so polnopravno ~lenstvo vo IMKA Evropa. Uspehot e dotolku pogolem [to bevme primeni pod na[eto ustavno ime, [to jasno zboruva deka IMKA, kako niedna druga organizacija, ne vrednuva spored dnevno politi~ki potrebi, tuku e imuna na tie vlijanija. Posle 8 godini posvetenost kon svojata vizija i misija i iskreno slu`ewe na mladite vo Makedonija, IMKA Makedonija zastana ramo do ramo so nacionalnite IMKA dvi`ewa vo Evropa koi imaat nad 150 godi[na istorija. Ova e moment na koj site so pravo se raduvame i izvonredna mo`nost da se potsetime i povtorno da gi reaktulizirame na[ite celi i vrednosti. Ova e i mo`nost da se zablagodarime na site onie, pred se mladi lu\e, koi [to go delea, go delat i ]e go delat svoeto vreme vo aktivnostite na organizacijata, pri toa gradej]i novi vrednosti vo gra\anskoto op[testvo vo Makedonija. Idejata koja se rodi od nekolkumina stana cvrsta baza na stotici. Sekako, raste`ot i uspehot na IMKA e postignat so nesebi~nata poddr[ka na na[ite prijateli od Evropskata IMKA, kako i od IMKA od Amerika. Bez nivnata motiviranost i inicijativi, koi gi nadminuvaat profesionalnite zalagawa i navleguvaat vo eden li~nosen napor, IMKA Makedonija nema[e da bide ona [to e. IMKA Makedonija be[e, e i ]e bide otvorena za sekoj mlad ~ovek koj saka da gi zgolemi svoite ve[tini, da ja kanalizira svojata energija, aktualizira svojata kreativnost i spodeli so svoite vrsnici od Evropa i svetot. Tokmu vo IMKA, vo IMKA Makedonija tie go dobivaat toa vnimanie i mo`nost za sebeaktuelizacija. Kako ~ovek koj e vklu~en od samiot po~etok vo na[ata organizacija i koj ima osobeno odgovorna uloga kako nejzin Pretsedatel ne mo`am da ne spomenam kolku sum blagosloven ovie osum godini.

YMCA MA CEDONIA IN THE EUR OPEAN FAMILY

After 8 years working, YMCA Macedonia from co-operating movement has become a member movement in YMCA Europe 2008 will be remembered in the history of YMCA Macedonia as year in which the organization has become full member in YMCA Europe. The success is even bigger that we were accepted with our constitutional name, which clearly says that YMCA like no other organization values not by the daily politics, but it is immune of such influences. After 8 years committed towards own vision and mission and sincere serving the youth in Macedonia, YMCA Macedonia stood right next to the National Movements of Europe which have over 150 years of history. This is also moment in which we all rejoice and outstanding possibility to remind our selves and to put focus again on our goals and values. This is possibility to thank to all young people who were investing their time and still do in the activities of the organization, and with it building new values and criteria in the civic society in Macedonia. The idea that has been born from few has become hard basis for hundreds. Of course, the development and success of the Macedonian YMCA has been done with unselfish support of our friends in YMCA Europe and the YMCA of USA. Without their motivation and initiatives, which has overcome the professional endeavor and entered in personal effort, YMCA wouldn't be what it is. YMCA Macedonia was and will be open for every young person who wants to enrich own skills, to canalize own energy, focus own creativity and share it with his/hers peers in Europe and world . And here in the YMCA, in YMCA Macedonia they will receive the needed attention and posibility for self actuelization. As a human who is included from the very beginning in our organization and who has especially responsible position as President I can't leave unsaid how blessed am I these 8 years. Let the same blessing reach all live beings in the world!

Aleksandar Kirkovski/ President of YMCA Macedonia

THE TREE DA Y: PLANT YOUR FUTURE! Over 2.000.000 planted trees, mass participation of the people "THE TREE DAY - PLANT YOUR FUTURE" was the motto of the action after the big fires that last summer burned Macedonian forests. The action was initiated by group of citizens headed by the opera singer Boris Trajanov. This initiative started from the numerous facts with which we are facing, from the continuous decreasing of the world's fond of forests that represents one of the biggest wo-rld's ecological problems, that has serious influence over the climate change, health of people, decreasing of animal population as well as world's economy. In the frames of this initiative, on 12 March 2008 under the motto "THE TREE DAY - PLANT YOUR FUTURE", it was organized one-day action of afforestation of the regions that were burned by the fires last summer. In the action took part citizens from 30 municipalities of Republic of Macedonia and a huge number of organizations. YMCA Bitola with its volunteers in the frames of the Forum of Bitola NGOs also supported this action in which participated over 100 members of NGOs from Bitola. Countrywide over 2.000.000 trees were planted which is a symbolic figure of total population in Republic of Macedonia.
