Young talented alumni of the Fund Forum`s youth projects have merged into an Alumni Club. The opening ceremony of the informal merger took place at Tashkent`s Youth Creativity Palace on May 25, a day that reminds many people of school leaving and the last school ring.
The idea of establishing an alumni club had long been under discussion with Kelajak ovozi (Voice of the future) Youth Initiative Center. Since 2006, the Center has produced several generations of activists. Over the past five years, over 1,500 young people across the republic have emerged as winners of educational grants programs, sport grants, scholarships, Kelajak ovozi Talented Youth Contest and other youth projects masterminded by the Fund Forum and Mehr nuri Foundation. Moreover, many young and active boys and girls, not affiliated with the programs, participate in the activities of the Center voluntarily.
The Alumni Club brings together active participants of the YIC of various ages. By helping them stick together, the Club allows them to swap experience, support each other and continue to participate in the Fund Forum`s major projects.
The YIC participants have exchanged opinions on the further activities of the Club, its format and the frequency of meetings as well as opportunities to participate in the Fund Forum`s projects.
