description of organisation
MultiKultiUA is a registered non-profit , non-governmental organization located in Kharkiv. The “International Exchange Network” MultiKultiUA was founded in 2008 by students of Kharkiv National Technical University, Ukrainian journalist Oleg Roy and German DAAD-lector Martin Reuther and officially registered in 2009. Since then MKUA has generated a complex action plan. This action plan consists of workshops, conferences, cultural and social events and projects as well as an international exchange program for students from different European countries. All these measures are aimed at fostering exchange of expertise and know-how between Ukraine and its European neighboring countries, at promoting mobility of young people, youth workers, at increasing intercultural learning and networking between cultural, educational and social organizations in Ukraine and, last but not least, fostering mutual understanding by broadening horizons.
Moreover, the international and young team of MultiKultiUA steadily develops new projects. We do believe that intercultural exchange in youth work is highly important. Our international volunteers, most of them from Austria, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and Great Britain, contribute new ideas and creativity to our projects and help us to plan and implement them. Of course, MultiKultiUA, as an experienced and cross-linked young NGO, helps the volunteers not only to discover Ukraine with its rich cultural heritage and diversity, but also to get a chance to create and implement own projects in the field of social work, education or culture to make it possible for them to learn as much as possible and gain as much new experience as possible while they are working with us.
Therefore, as hosting organization, we would like to make it possible for volunteers to be fully involved in the activities of our organization. We would like to involve international youngsters in daily activities of our NGO. Different ideas, new approaches, new experience, different attitudes will bring new opportunities to our organization and will give opportunities to young people from Europe to develop new skills, competences and to live in the intercultural environment. Mutual sharing of different cultures, opinions lifestyles are one of the main keys of the intercultural environment where we live. We are convinced that our volunteers will benefit from our community, as well as our community will benefit from an international and intercultural environment. We expect that hosting new EVS volunteers will bring intercultural dimension to our local projects.
As sending organization, we would like to encourage young people to participate in European Voluntary Service, on the long term or short term, as it will empower them to be active citizens in the communities, develop new competences, skill and to promote mutual understanding among youth. We believe that only citizens, who have broadened their horizons and got a chance to experience other lifestyles and countries, can contribute to a living and active civil society and to the development of democracy.
