Creation of the youth organisation "KOYANA" ("Reindeer calf")

November 1999

(Chairman of the RAIPON Regional Association of Ossora)

With the aim of promoting young people in indigenous environments, the public youth organisation "Koyana" is being created. Its main tasks are the support of higher and technical education of the youth, the development of national art, and capacity building in the organisation.

An organisation committee for the formation of the youth organisation "Koyana" has been formed. For the time being, financial means on the order of US$ 15,000 for the acquisition of premises are needed, as well as for technical and other equipment for ca. US$ 50,000. We would be very grateful for any suggestions.
