As the trainer of the event, self-development coach Igor Andriichenko noted: "Participants, as people with different life experiences, well replenished each other. The first part of the training was devoted to the motivation and identifying the true goals of the participants and available resources. Most asserted in the right choice of their direction of business ideas. And some people realized that they had a bunch of vital resources but did not pay attention to before. In the second part, the participants worked on a plan for the practical realization of their business ideas and filling the business plans. Here, in the working groups, there was a great opportunity to test the realism of their ideas, receiving a constructive feedback from the group".
"In addition to being able to participate in learning and gaining new knowledge and skills in starting their own business, all participants can get grants to develop their own business ideas. Today, such assistance for internally displaced persons and vulnerable groups of the population is still relevant in Chernihiv region", said Kateryna Dankova, Program Officer of Chernihiv Public Committee for Human Rights Protection.
The events are organized by Chernihiv Public Committee for Human Rights Protection in partnership with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Mission within the framework of the project "Facilitating the Rebuilding and Sustainable Resolution of Problems of IDPs and the Conflict-affected Population in Ukraine" with the financial support of the European Union.
