13.3 Projects to be applied

-         Winter camp 

-         Falafel Network Meeting (Johnny)
- we wont be able to submitt application for 1st of November. Reasons:
- too few partenrs organizations (4 or 5 if Germans have sent documents to Jordanians, i haven't got them) especially form the region
- problems related to the formal and techical parts of the application, since they don't depend on our office
- communicational problems with Jordanian office
- whole this project demands much more and longer preparations in order to be valuable for furhter develpment of Falafel- obstacels haven't been assed properly in advance, but now there is clearer picture coming from this failure
-         Revolutionary Movements for Democracy (Steva and Johnny)

-         LGBTQ seminars (Terry)
