Uzhhorod 2008 // Ukraine

von | Mrz 28, 2022 | Ukraine, Galerie, Unterwegs | 0 Kommentare

In 2008 I moved to Uzhhorod for a year to work with Romani Yag and Romani Cherchen, two Roma organizations located there.

When I applied and was sent there, Romani Yag ran the first newspaper for and by Roma in Ukraine. When I arrived, the funding was cut and so the newspaper couldn’t be published any more.

The European Union had just declared the Decade of Roma Inclusion and it seemed that funding therefore was also kept in the European Union. Additionally, the Ukrainian state asked for 40% taxes of any money coming into the country from foreign resources, and so writing grant applications wasn’t easy.

The Romani Yag WordPress site I set up for them is still online, though. I’ll add more here at a later point.

Uzhhorod is/was a very beautiful small town, the capital of Transcarpathia and is very close to the Slovakian border, built around the river Uzh.

I remember that on each side of the river you could still see where the bullets hit on the fence that was there from the fights in the two World Wars. I hope so sincerely that no new holes will be added this year.

The joke for many people in this region was that people had lived in three or even four different countries, without ever once leaving their house. (Austro-Hungarian Empire, Czechoslovakia, Soviet-Union and then Ukraine)

OUR WORLD NEEDS CHANGE.
Our world needs you.
In your full power.

Start exploring new ways to be in this world.

How can you benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become joyfully interdependent.

If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life. The best way to work with me this year is by joining the Generous Life Membership Programme as a VIP member with individual coaching.

On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.
