Members of our association has been participating in youth exchange in Turkey through ‘Youth in Action’ programme. 7-days long project has been taking place in Turkey’s far east, right next to the mountain of Ararat (see the picture above). According to the participants, this part of Turkey is absolutely unique. To begin with, it is not at all touristy, thus the old culture and customs are preserved. The locals are poor and conservative, but the same time really sincere.
The project had the topic about healthy lifestyle. The members of our association has presented Lithuania and it’s initiative towards healthier youth. We have also made friends with various youth organizations from Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Estonia and United Kingdom.
