Volunteer action of afforestation of Grabovac and decorating the walls of the Old Town in Kotor

On Saturday, November 13, volunteers of the NGO Naša akcija supported two actions together with our friends and colleagues from the Youth Team Tivat. The day started with the action of afforestation of Grabovac, which was organized by the Municipality of Tivat. The action was joined by citizens, DVD companies from Tivat and the Protection Service. 150 seedlings of bone and pomegranate were planted in this first planting action. Shortly before noon, we headed to Kotor, where we finished decorating the walls from the summer stage to the Citadel with music, fun and socializing. After 9 hours of work, it was time for fun, and so the team headed to the table tennis tournament held in the local community Gradiošnica. The day was rounded off by the Secretary of Social Affairs, Borka Mršulja, who solemnly presented diplomas to the winners of the tournament.
We realized this activity with the support of the European endowment for democracy through the program “Nature for mental and physical health of young people”.

Walking tour to Captain’s Lake

Team for all weather conditions! Yesterday we had a field action tour of Captain’s Lake to the delight of our volunteers. Although it was quite cold and windy (the temperature did not exceed 10C °), the desire for the natural beauties of Lukavica was decisive. The autumn colors made the admiration for nature even greater, so we enjoyed this walk at every moment. We will surely return to Captain’s Lake in the spring, when the snow starts to melt and when strong waterfalls start. Join us for some of the activities, be an active team! This activity is part of the EED program called “Nature for the mental and physical health of young people”

Humanitarian action for the Orbović family

In the past two weeks, we have organized two humanitarian actions to raise funds for a single mother, Oliver Orbović. She lives with her four daughters in Žabljak Crnojević with a monthly income of 120 euros. That is exactly the obstacle to receiving social assistance. Since her husband passed away, Oliver’s already difficult life, due to his illnesses, has become even more difficult. “I was left alone with my children. I am aware that life here is difficult anyway, especially when the children are still raising, “she told PCNEN. Oliver’s only income is 120 euros, her husband’s inherited pension, due to which she cannot receive social assistance or any other from the state. We will keep the Orbović family in mind for the next humanitarian activities, for which we will inform the general public in a timely manner. This action would not be possible without our friends and students from the @ arcadia_academi_montenegro school, as well as the citizens of Tivat. Thanks!

.
The NGO Naša akcija together with a team of students from the Arcadia school and the locals of Bigova today marked the International Day of Cleaning the Coast of this small fishing village. With the team work of participants and locals who met for the first time, and enthusiastically cooperated, 40 bags of 120 liters of waste were collected, of course most of the plastic packaging, a total of 225 kg!
The International Clean Coast Day is organized by @ zero.waste.montenegro in cooperation with @nvo_nasa_akcija, and under the auspices of the EU Delegation to Montenegro, the Ministry of Ecology, Urbanism and Spatial Planning, the EU Info Center, Beyond Plastic, the MED Association and the Prince Albert II Foundation, through project “Youth for a clean Adriatic”. At the local level, as every year so far, the action is supported by the Tourist Organization of Kotor and the Utility Company Kotor.
“We thank everyone who came out to meet us and helped us to mark this day, and leave this wonderful place for swimming in a beautiful condition. We appeal to the Utility Company Kotor to return the container that was in this location until 2019 and thus perhaps motivate bathers and other visitors to dispose of waste at an appropriate location. ” says the Organizational Manager of the NGO Naša akcija Vuk Koljenšić.
