Europe Prykhystok supports children victims of the war in Ukraine in brokering innovative partnerships between local actors from Ukraine and Europe.
These are local-to-local institutional and operational partnerships between cities, Regions, agglomerations and civil society organizations, with children at the center.
By doing so, we develop a non centralized regional governance model of support to populations displaced by wars.

We mobilized local actors
13 local associations
Several tens of local actors from 9 additional countries committed to implement actions and develop local-to-local cooperation partnerships.
funders made these actions possible.
How we support
Europe Prykhystok constantly listens to the needs of local populations and develops actions together with them.
With a large network of local actors, we organize:
1. “Respite stays” outside Ukraine for children – 2 to 3 weeks.
2. “Transplanted classes”: children who have started their fourth consecutive school year in distance learning come to Europe with their teachers to the learn the Ukrainian curriculum in person – 3 to 4 weeks.
3. Support to youth and internally displaced people within Ukraine: renovation of collective living places and development of children and youth empowerment centers, especially in the areas that are the most affected by the war.
4. Development of local-to-local institutional and operational cooperation partnerships between Ukraine and Europe.
It was an incredible journey: museums, trips, performances - everything remained in my memory forever! But I believe that nothing can replace live communication. Meetings, evenings that we spent together with French peers will never be forgotten. I'm glad I have such wonderful friends!
