Non-governmental Organization "Development center Pangeya Ultima"
(Development center "Pangeya Ultima")
description of organisation
NGO "Development center Pangeya Ultima" is the organization composed of youth, youth workers and third sector specialists that deal with non-formal education, international mobility programmes, rural development, media, active citizenship and other youth initiatives in cultural, outdoors and ecologic spheres. The NGO acts a lot on a local level and state levels, taking part in international activities as well. From the beginning our center was organizing events of non-formal, evening education like language clubs, personal growth sessions, facilitations etc. for the general audience from the local community in Vinnytsia (Ukraine). Beyond this we're involved in organizing of international workcamping - we've organized camps in Ukraine and sent many our participants to the camps in the EU and Ukraine (cooperating with the SCI network). Thanks to this work-camping activity we’ve gained a lot of partners and ties on the periphery of our Vinnytsia region and Ukrainian countryside, in small rural communities (local green-tourism proprietors, youth activists and artists). While also cooperating with our local partner NGO in Vinnytsia we started to work with the "Youth in Action" programme in 2013. We hosted clubs and non-formal youth events of EVS volunteers since then and got involved in other activities in frames of such projects. Our youth work potential developed dramatically and we started to organize the youth exchanges like the “12 values expedition” in 2014 aimed at peace-building issues in the turbulent for Ukraine time. Our activities also span on music - we organized a city-wide contest of acoustic guitar playing, also we've been organizing role game sessions that were visited by many young people. Our exceptional interest lies in the development of the theater instrument in the work with youth and with the local community. Our organization has gathered around a solid, active circle of youth that are interested in different youth initiatives from a number of spheres. We total up to 17 members and scores of visitors of our events. Recently we started to develop the “YouthInsight” project concept (cooperating with other NGOs) which hosts youth projects aimed at developing of indepenedent and youth media. Another extremely successful projec is aimed at the sustainable development of small, rural communities through boosting their incoming tourism attractiveness - the “Image Mapping” project. It was acknowledged by the Ministry of youth and sports in Ukraine as the best youth initiative from Vinnytska oblast in 2015 and gained financial support from the Embassy of Finland and hence we're developing a whole-country "Image Mapping" network. Moreover we're doing Youth Exchanges and TCs within the E+ programme. The most recent example is the "Understanding each other" YE that brought youth from 7 countries in Ukraine to speak on the matters concerning peace.
