On August 6, 2018 the Youth Ecological Volunteer Inclusive Camp “YEVIC 2018” finished.

The camp was held on the Verkh-Isetsky Pond’s shore, on the Baran peninsula and united more than 200 people of various social groups: blind and deaf people, people overcoming addictions.

In 2018, YEVIC entered the international level – the teacher of the inclusive school from Uganda Elizabeth Rwabu took part in the camp, and Marianne Poppenk the blind artist and sculptor from Holland gave the art workshop for the camp participants!

A lot of master classes were held within the camp, such as “Journey Between Worlds”, “Cooking Show of Blind Chefs” etc., seminars, we joined the popular activity called “plugging” (ordinary jogging turned into an environmental action that helps to make the surrounding space cleaner), cleaned the territory of the Baran peninsula and made it more beautiful!

A special feature of YEVIC2018 was a unique experience of interaction of blind and deaf people.

We thank all our partners for their assistance in the preparation and implementation of the “YEVIC 2018” project:
