On 10 July, the mobile open-air photo exhibition “Faces of the Projects” arrived in the Belarusian city of Navapolack. Run by the EU Delegation to Belarus, the exhibition showcases success stories from the EU-funded projects in the country.

The photo collection features 58 personal stories collected from the beneficiaries of the EU-funded projects over a 4-year period. The exhibition was first opened in Minsk on 1 July 2015.

Citizens of Navapolack will be able to learn about the EU-supported project, “Navapolack – from an inclusive school to an inclusive city”, implemented by the Navapolack City Executive Committee, the Belarusian Union of Transport Workers and the Belarusian Society of Disabled People.

Sergey Drozdovsky, a representative of the Belarusian Society of Disabled People, indicated that the project might serve as an example for other towns.

The exhibition photos also cover topics such as rural development and entrepreneurship support, energy efficiency, the provision of aid to children, assisting women that survived domestic violence, promoting the European approach to education and science, and preserving historical and cultural traditions.

The photo exhibition has already visited the cities of Valožyn and Braslaŭ. It will remain in Navapolack until 22 July, before moving to Mscislaŭ. After that, “Faces of the Projects” will be exhibited in Žytkavičy, Navahrudak and Ščučyn, as well as returning to Hrodna, Brest, Homieĺ, Mahilioŭ and Viciebsk for a second time.
