Volunteering is the type of activity that gives people, especially young ones, an opportunity to gain valuable experience in performing different types of work, acquire organizational skills, bases of communication and make new and useful contacts. In addition, this communication promotes outlook and awareness of the society.
There was an event “XIII International Festival of Languages and Cultures “The colors of the world”, in which students participated as volunteers under the leadership of M.Tishchenko. The meeting was attended by ambassadors of foreign countries as well as representatives of Ukraine. Its main goal was to spread friendship, understanding and love between people of different countries and cultures, to exchange experience and knowledge, to promote Ukrainian language by foreigners and Turkish language by representatives of other countries.
Topics of discussion were: stimulation of intercultural dialogue as a basis of trust and mutual understanding; recognition and support of cultural diversity as assistance in solving economic and legal issues; support of culture in all forms through physical and mental heritage, economy, goods and cultural services.
The atmosphere between the organizers, guests and volunteers was warm and friendly. Volunteers of the NGO “Poruch” had the opportunity to interact with diplomats of different countries and to improve interpersonal and intercultural communication competence.
