On June 4, 2015, the ‘Everyday Heroes’ charity fair took place in the ZIL Cultural Center, involving students involved in charitable initiatives at HSE, MGIMO, MGU, and MIFI. The idea of creating a forum for the exchange of experience in this area was developed by two of HSE’s student projects – Open Your Eyes, and ICEF Outreach.
Volunteering isn’t a profession it is about following your heart. If you want to help someone in need but don’t know how to begin, then come to our event at the ZIL Cultural Centre. On the 4th June, HSE student organisations are running the ‘A Hero among Us’ festival with dozens of Moscow’s student charity projects.
We’re not indifferent, we won’t walk past someone in trouble – that’s the motto of the student charity “ICEF Outreach”. It was set up by a group of enthusiasts at ICEF a few years ago and since then has grown to bring together dozens of people across all the faculties of HSE. Chief coordinator of the project Anastasia Fedorova, told us about their most recent activities and trips to orphanages.
