Janina, our East Europe Coordinator, came to Scotland in August 2014. Janina attended the AGM and spoke about the work of developing projects in the Lydia Project network. Janina helped to work on a new website and met friends and supporters to share news in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Pitlochry, Dirleton, North Berwick and Kirk Yetholm.
Supporters in the Church of Scotland in Kirk Yetholm have been involved over the years with a project in Lithuania. They hosted Ilona, from Gelgaudiskis near Kaunas, and supported her launch of a community centre as well as visiting the village when it celebrated its 500th birthday. They are always glad to hear news of that centre, as well as the projects and work of Lydia Project women in other countries as far apart as Latvia and Georgia.
