Mission and values

We help people in Ukraine and create opportunities to become better and live better, building up on our achievements and international experience in charity. For the future.

"What is my philosophy of charity?
Charity is the ability to feel somebody else’s pain.
Charity is the ability to share somebody else’s pain.
Charity is a systemic fight against systemic problems.
Charity is orientation toward result.
Charity is openness.
What does it mean to create a team that shares this philosophy? These people must have heart to take somebody else’s pain as their own. These people must have eyes, must have good vision to see systemic problems. These people must have head, which means knowledge and experience, to solve these problems. These people must not create the illusion of work but work to make sure that everyone really feels our help. And also, our entire team must be open. Open to the society, open to media, open to new ideas and open to partnership."
