On the 19th of May almost fifty children, whose parents defended our peace on the frontline, tried themselves in fishing. As a part of the project "Mentoring for Youth", this leisure activity which is conducted by the NGO "Ukrainian Union of ATO Participants" was supported by the Lviv Active Leisure Club.
Children tried to catch crucian carps in the city of Zvenyhorod on the local lake, called Zhukiv. Firstly, they listened about all safety techniques and later everyone chose the fishing rod and together with "older fishermen" separated alongside the shore. For kids who were fishing for the first time, professional instructors and ATO veterans conducted a master-class in preparation and catching fish. Finally, all caught fish was released back to the lake. As a result, instead of fish soup, members of the charity fund "Patriot" cooked the cossack kulish.
In addition, there were organized various competitions, dancing quests and entertainment program from Levko Bebeshko (Levko Durko) for children. Al in all, young fishermen received gifts from patrons and the main sponsor of the project - store of fishing equipment "Flagman".
