Krasnodar, 29 October. 16+ Our today’s interviewee is Dana Rudneva, Head of the Dobry Yug Foundation. 

Q.: How would you evaluate civil society in the Krasnodar region? How has it been changing over the past years? 

A.: Nonprofit organizations (NPOs) are becoming more professional; we have learnt to act not on a hunch, but by adopting the experience of our colleagues from other regions who are good at certain things; we are using upto-date technologies and innovations. We are learning to narrate about our work in mass media and social networks, about our projects and possibilities to take part in them – to draw attention to social problems and possibilities to resolve them, and to form associations of like-minded persons and develop. In their work with companies and governmental bodies, NPOs have changed from a suppliant format into mutually profitable cooperation. 

Q.: Why are your current projects important for Krasnodar krai? 

A.: Currently, Dobry Yug is getting to a new level of work, switching from project to program activities. Together with our team, we have determined five main directions. Our pottery, culinary, sewing, upcycling, graphics and illustrations inclusive labour workshops for mentally challenged young people, and a sewing association for physically challenged women and for women who bring up children with developmental challenges will continue to work. Besides, the centres will be working: an employment assistance centre for young people with restricted employment opportunities; a habilitation and socialization centre for teenagers and youth with developmental challenges; and a creativity centre for children and adults with developmental challenges. As soon as technical feasibility appears, we will launch a humanitarian aid project. Now the main problem of our organization is absence of the premises where we could be implementing all our plans. The Krasnodar City Hall is not ready to help us so far, and we are counting on support of the regional administration. 

Q.: What is needed to have your experience expanded into other towns and villages of the region? 

A.: The most important thing is support of the local authority. We are ready to multiply our experience to other cities, open representations based on parents’ associations, render methodological assistance and consultancy support, run supervisions, and search for additional financial sources to launch projects for the entire region. But the lack of premises makes the situation more complicated. This is a big problem for all Kuban NPOs on the whole. 

Q.: Who is a contemporary volunteer in Krasnodar? 

A.: Our volunteers are very different people. For instance, students including those majoring in psychology, social work and pedagogy, people with experience in giving classes on applied arts, people ready to become pro bono volunteers and share their professional skills, and elderly people.
