This is a project design and implementation domestic violence conference. The conference is designed to give participants necessary information about domestic violence in Ukraine and teach them the necessary project design/management and implementation skills. Participants will be given all the skills needed to create, design, and implement projects on their own, obtain funding, and have opportunities to network with domestic violence professionals and like minded individuals. They will then take what they have learned and return to their communities to create their own small project that will combat domestic violence and encourage healthy lifestyles. By training community members as project planners we hope to create a sustainable network to combat domestic violence and reach the most at-risk communities through a grassroots effort of education and civic development.
 
 
Trees for the Future
 
 
 
===Summary===
 
 
 
[http://www.plant-trees.org/ '''Trees for the Future'''] is an American NGO working in many countries around the world.  The Ghana Program Coordinator Lovans Owusu-Takyi (0244108268) works at [http://kita-ghana.org/ KITA (Kumasi Institute of Tropical Agricuclture)], in Kumasi.  He is always interested in working with Peace Corps volunteers so feel free to contact him with any questions.
 
 
 
My work with Trees has been for the most part very positive.  The key to working with TFTF is to show them you are serious about agro-forestry and tree planting.  Once we proved we could mobilize our community and get trees planted TftF began to help us.  To start they gave us seeds and a watering can with that we where able to nurse over 7000 trees and transplant them. Now they have given us money to expand our project to three new communities.  They also have come to give a workshop on agro-forestry and sustainable farming practices in my village.  
 
 
 
Trees for the Future are very interested in education of villagers in agro-forestry so getting them Agro-forestry certified is another way of getting their attention.  In the back of the Trees for the Future book there is a test for locals to complete and once they do and send it to TftF they will receive a certificate in agro-forestry.  It is not easy to get someone to sit down and finish the test but I promise both they and TftF will appreciate it.  Getting this certificate also makes them eligible to apply for grants from TftF. Trees for the Future can be an excellent partner in implementing projects especially for Environment volunteers the key is getting them to notice you.
