The results of the contest for participation in the project “Ethnic: ProMotion” were summed up. The regional public organization for assistance to indigenous ethnic minorities of the North “Minley” (Salekhard) passed the competitive selection for participation in the project.
In total more than 50 non-profit organizations from different federal regions of Russia participated in the contest. The geography of the applicants covers the territory from Kaliningrad to Petropavlovsk-Kamchtsky. “Minley” is headed by Galina Mataras. The active leader of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North organized a nomadic camp not far from Salekhard. Her choum welcomes guests, and the lady of the house herself acquaints visitors to customs and traditions of Nenets people. (The note: a choum is a traditional home of nomads, reindeer herders; it is similar to a tepee).
The recognized leader of the public movement of Yamal Galina Mataras is known for being the first to announce publicly the idea to include “choum rabotnitsa” in the classifier of working professions in Russia 10 years ago. (The note: a choum rabotnitsa or a choum-keeper, a reindeer herder’s wife working in a choum, running household and helping in reindeer herding and other work). Before that wives of reindeer herders travelled together with their families without any compensation for their hard work, and therefore did not have a decent pension and social guarantees, such as employee leave, maternity leave or sick leave.
According to the information given to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” in the Assembly of peoples of Russia, the submitted applications were developed at the high level, and it took a lot of time to choose the winners. The expert council examined all the applications in detail and recommended 40 organizations to participation in the project (instead of the previously announced 30). The winners will pass education within the program and will be able to work out the technology on formation of the strategy for development and promotion of social projects on the example of the general WOW-event. Unified templates for positioning in social networks, workbooks and video courses on topics of seminars will be developed for the participants of the project.
The project “Ethnic: ProMotion” is a comprehensive program aimed at increasing the level of professional competences and forming a community of like-minded persons — leaders and activists of ethno-cultural socially oriented non-profit organizations. The project is a continuation of the program “Ethnic” and is also implemented by the Assembly of peoples of Russia and the Resource center in the sphere of national relations with support of the Council for Interethnic Relations under the President of the Russian Federation with use of a grant from the President of the Russian Federation for development of civil society provided by the Presidential Grants Foundation.
(The note: in Nenets mythology Minley is a giant bird that creates the wind by the order of the main god of Nenets people named Num).
