About this grant

The program goal is to increase civic activism and community engagement in Ukraine. The grantee will work to strengthen regional networks of citizen activists throughout the country through regular residential workshops and distance learning courses. The regional networks will apply this knowledge in implementing both regional and joint national advocacy and public awareness campaigns. Key topics of the proposed campaigning may include provision of housing and communal services and local government transparency. These activities will help strengthen ties and improve coordination among regional advocacy partners. Civic Network OPORA has conducted a number of successful, local, public interest campaigns since its establishment in 2006.
