Hello! My name is Irina and I am Ukrainian girl who is passionate about travels, volunteering and Georgia (Caucasus). And I'm here in hope to share one of my ideas and my love to one of the most incredible countries I've ever been.
Since my first time in this country I brought up the idea to be back and to start blog about hidden gems of this country. Of course there is some information about some Georgian's touristic destinations but it isn't all that this county can propose to everyone who have willing to come. Even more: its only very small part of it. Amazing nature, beautiful landscapes, great winery, various unmatched cousin... but the most incredible resource that this country has - its people. Their souls are as open as your arms while hugging your loved once. Their traditions, stories and legends are as charming and improbable as fairytales that your grandmother told you in your sweetest childhood. And I can't find the adjective to their hospitality cause you should come to feel it at least once and you will definitely fall in love with it! And you won't be able to explain it as you can't explain why you love your parents/children/spouses, you just love them unconditionally and they love you back so!
Hope at least some of you who is reading it now trying to Google some pics or check Wikipedia to find out what I am talking about:)
To be back to my goal WHY am I here I would like to start with concept of my future blog and the activities which I plan while creating it. This February I am planning to go to Georgia to volunteer for several NGO's in the capital of Georgia Tbilisi and to learn Georgian language. My aim is to get an experience in activities of this NGOs and to implement it in Ukraine for our "Ukrainian Youth Centre" NGO (check our activities on www.uycentre.org) I’m working in on voluntary basis. BUT during three months period I will be in Georgia I also want to implement my idea that will help a lot of people to choose their next destination and become true adventurers and nomads as I did while here. I will explore non-touristic destinations, collect stories and legends from locals, make videos and pics of everything I see, and believe me, you will fall in love with this country and its culture even on-line :) my friend did it already only listening to some of my stories, but there will come more!
BUT! To make this project happened I need your help and support! As far as I am still student in Ukraine and my job in Ukrainian NGO is totally volunteering I need to raise financial support from as passionate individuals as I am. Of course I'm working on my free time trying to save some money but if to check current situation in my country - that’s really not that easy nowadays, while economical problems is not the very essential but war on Eastern Ukraine...But I’m here not to ask for compassion. I’m here to ask you to support my volunteering ideas and future blog that will helps people to become more aware about this beautiful destination.
Blog will be in English Russian and Ukrainian, but if it will be really successful it may be translated into German and Polish and transferred into web-site with tips and tricks for nomads. And of course I’m not going to stop on one country :)
Why 2000$? Its minimum to cover living and travel expenses for 3 months while in Georgia. If I will find some profits during my stay or while blogging, I promise to donate some money to other ideas on this web-site or to help someone who is in need. I truly believe in circulation of good in nature, karma and all that staff :)
Sooo, dear reader, if you feel like help young, active and very exited Ukrainian girl to spread her passion to the world - you know what to do! Also please mind that everybody who will donate at least 5 $ will get small reward (find details above).
There is no small help! Every cent you've donated its a big inspiration and support!
Or just wish me a good luck and I will do the same to you!
