A student of the School of Medicine Taisiia Sazonova together with students of Kharkov National Medical University Iryna Nechiporuk, Kyril Degtyar, Daria Malakhova took part in the UPSHIFT project organized by UNICEF with the support of the European Union.
For three days, the team developed an educational project in the field of vaccination. At the end of the training, the project was presented to the jury members: representatives of UNICEF, NGO “Professional Development of Kharkiv”, Kharkiv City Council. As a result, the project 4VACCINE received financial support for further implementation.
Soon, the first activities will be implemented within the project: an educational event at the Training Center "LANDAUCERTER" of V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University and the Forum “Vaccination a Step to Protection”.
UPSHIFT is a global innovations project that covers 22 countries worldwide and aims to develop young people’s social entrepreneurship skills. In Ukraine, UPSHIFT is being implemented by the “Professional Development of Kharkiv” NGO in the framework of UNICEF’s “Strengthening the resilience and civic engagement of adolescent and youth in conflict-affected eastern Ukraine” programme, funded by the European Union (EU).
The programme combines social innovation workshops with mentorship, materials and seed funding, in order to equip young people with the skills and resources they need to identify problems and challenges in their communities and find solutions to these problems.
