OrexCA.com provided sponsorship assistance to the Tenth Charity Exhibition-Fair “Time of Miracles”.
The 10th Charity fair of artworks, handicraft and souvenirs made by children and young people with the limited physical abilities
On January, 8th, 2011 in Tashkent, the annual fair "Time of miracles" was held in the hotel "Dedeman Silk Road Tashkent". The tenth Charity fair of artworks, handicraft and souvenirs made by children, teenagers and young people with the limited physical abilities, was organized by "A-Club" which is the club under the Program of Professional Management graduates from the Uzbek and Japanese Center (UJC) with support of the "Dedeman Silk Road Tashkent" hotel and national exhibition company "ZarExpo", OrexCA.com and some commercial and public organizations of Tashkent city.
A-Club Chairman Mr. Michael Shamshidov tells:
- Here already throughout eight years we do this activity, and I am happy to note evolution in the organization of event. I'm so pleased, that year after year the quantity turns into quality. So, preparation for our first fair which took place in October, 2003, was conducted during the whole year. Now we need only a month to organize the fair skillfully.
The main target of the fair is social partnership, whereas the main mission is development of children's creativity. We have provided various kinds of large and small business participation. Besides purely financial participation, companies render their services: exhibition stands, a hall for carrying out the event, transport and many other things. The means obtained from products sale are used for purchasing of a necessary material. But still for the majority of children the recognition of the creativity which they receive communicating with visitors of the exhibition is more important. They feel themselves masters and begin understanding that their favorite occupation can bring pleasure to others and can become an income source in the future.
The high status of charity fair "Time of Miracles" and its value in the issue of social partnership were noted by the special visitor of the action, His Excellency the Ambassador of Great Britain in Uzbekistan Mr. Rupert Joy:
- I am amazed by a large quantity of energy and enthusiasm of the organizers of this event. I have three small children, they live with me, in Tashkent and believe me, I know how difficult this work is. The idea of social responsibility of business is very popular in the British companies. We actively try to make it real, including those countries where we have our business. In Uzbekistan social activity of British business is shown in realization of programs at schools of Samarkand and Zarafshan. I consider the activity of the A-Club the very significant indicator of social activity of business in Uzbekistan.
Twenty organizations working for the sake of children with physical inability, including children's homes, specialized schools, boarding schools and public organizations have taken part in the tenth, anniversary fair. The Chairman of the Centre of Support of Children with the limited possibilities and their families "Umidvorlik" Marina Teperina has incurred a part of organizing functions in attraction of participants for the fair:
- Pleases that fact that after participation in the fair creativity becomes a trade for many children. From our side we try to trace destinies of participants of the project, and with pleasure I can tell, that subsequently many of them have made creativity the aim of their entire life. Some of our children became teachers, and among them there is someone who has his own business. And this fact should please. After all, for children with the limited possibilities, creativity is one of the most accessible ways of socialization.
As the constant participant of the fair I can notice, that sales of products and coverage of the action grow year after year. And if earlier people bought children hand-made items just for participation now it is really worthy works which are in demand.
I'm happy, that such concept as social responsibility of business has been strongly included into our life. The last fair "Time of Miracles" is the bright acknowledgement of this fact. I hope, that in Year of Small and private business additional conditions for development of business and optimization of its social responsibility will be created.
