Description: Project partner: NGO "Living Village" This village has more than 300 years of documented history and one architectural monument. The "zemska" (built by Lokhvitske Zemstvo, the ruling organ of that time) school was built in 1914 according to the plan of Opanas Slastion, the theorist of the style known as Ukrainian architectural modern. For today this building is abandoned and needs extra help and extra attention. There is a big risk to lose it forever. With the help of volunteers we have to give it the new life as an educational and cultural centre.
Type of Work: The abandoned building of the old school is protected by the special law but is getting damaged by the nature. With your help we can clean the space around the school from the extra greens and to complete the basic work that will save the monument from the further destruction (to restore the roof, the floor, the windows and the doors). The work will be done according to the recommendation of the architects and with the support of the local authorities and activists. Moreover we have to bring back some cultural and educational life. Your help is also needed for the Story Hours for kids, help with the open air film screenings and concerts during the camp.
Study Theme: We plan 2 film screenings and 2 concerts during the camp. Sunbathing and swimming in the Sula river is possible. Perfect location for the bird watchers, book and nature lovers. One or two bus trips throughout the Lokhvytsia district will be organized including the visits of the local museums and places of interest.
Accommodation: Will be provided in the houses in the village. Two of them will be transformed into the hostels to meet the basic needs of the campers. Food: will be provided 3 times per day.
Requirements: What to bring: Working clothes and gloves, sleeping bag, swimming suit, shoes, sportswear, mosquito protection liquid, musical instruments and whatever you usually need.
Approximate Location: Khrystanivka, Lokhvytskii district, Poltava region (240 km to the East from Kyiv).
