On March 5 and 6, training for the participants of the «Free Legal Aid Volunteer» project took place in Sviatohirsk (Donetsk region, Ukraine).
After completing the distance learning course, 10 activists received a Free Legal Aid System volunteer certificate.
The purpose of the training was to consolidate the knowledge and skills acquired during online learning.
Participants learned about:
- The structure of free legal aid;
- Principles of volunteering in this area;
- Achieving understanding in communication, resolving conflicts and establishing healthy communication;
The «Free Legal Aid Volunteer» project started in 2020 in cooperation with the Free Legal Aid System in Ukraine with the financial support of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
The project’s goal is to raise awareness of legal issues in communities and the ability of communities / individuals to protect their rights, as well as to assist Free Legal Aid centers in carrying out their functions by informing the public about the Free Legal Aid system.
