“I Can!” Project Starts “Incubator of Social Ideas”

“I Can!” project creates new opportunities for girls and women, who have ideas and a potential to work in social projects. Several trainings covering four different directions will be conducted within the framework of the “I Can!” project, which is aimed at strengthening the role of women in the society. One of the directions will be the "Incubator of Social Ideas". This incubator will provide girls and women from all over Ukraine with the opportunity to gain access to practical knowledge in the field of social entrepreneurship, will give them an inspiration through the success stories of invited project mentors and help them get their mentors’ support. It will also help them communicate with activists in this area and develop their own project while being guided by the organizers.

The project participants will take part in the training course, which was developed based on their needs. They will receive practical knowledge of the basics of project management, business planning (project development, planning, resource analysis, budget, PR strategy development, fundraising), leadership development and public speaking practices.

Upon completion of the training, the participants will share their knowledge with school students and work on developing their own project, using the skills gained during the training and mentoring advice. The project will be based on highlighting school issues or even the issues of the whole region and presenting possible ways to address them.

Ladies who are at the beginning of their career or who have completed their studies can participate in the project.

To take part in the competition, you have to fill out a short questionnaire, paying particular attention to the motivation aspect.
