When talking to members of PTAs, we saw that the common people do not believe that their vote for someone important, are surprised that they can create their own organization, "have the right" to participate in local government.

They are faced with the following challenges:

• have the skills of self-expression, listening to others, conflict resolution, consensus building

• It is difficult to take responsibility

• lack of perseverance and time

• uncertainty about the role of civil society.

• After a long period of dependence, people still have a fear of authority. MPs and especially local officials are experiencing the same difficulties as the locals, but as officials, they have their own unique challenges:

• They are confident in their own role. Very few of them are starting to realize that it is they have to provide public services for all, and not "act as a power"

• They do not trust the public initiatives. They do not know what to make of these initiatives and how to collaborate with people and organizations The above mentioned common problems and residents, and government officials, and officials in Dokuchayevsk lead to extremely slow formation of partnerships between normal people (and organizations created by them), and decision makers.
