Two years, four and a half trucks of removed garbage, hundreds of hours of work of hundreds of volunteers, millions of hryvnias from budgets of different levels, and incredible motivation of all those who took part in it – this and much more was needed to open “Kvadrat” youth centre in Vinnytsia, the only venue of such a kind in Ukraine.
The opening ceremony began in the main hall of the centre, where in almost total darkness dozens of guests watched a musical slide show about two years of preparation of these premises to be opened. The video ended with the Queen band’s song “We are the champions”.
“We are really the champions, because only the champions could go this way and overcome so many difficulties in order to finally open “Kvadrat” today,” said Natalia Zabolotna, Director of the Social Policy Department of the Vinnytsia Oblast State Administration, who is considered one of the main drivers of the entire centre creation process.
