Last year, thanks to our program, Agents of Volunteering appeared in Ukraine — ambassadors of good actions, that are sharing the culture of volunteering.

Now we are launching the program, called «Agents of Volunteering 2.0». During the year in 10 cities volunteer communities are going to be developed, connecting people from different areas for the sake of quality changes in the country.

Why volunteer community?
Thousands of Ukrainians have joined the movement for changes in the past few years. Every single one of them invested something: time, talent, money, professional knowledge or their hand of helping.

They motivated someone to act, while others didn't realise the value of volunteering. In the strive of changing the country for the better, activists were met with the lack of support, tireness and the burnout.

Imagine, what would Ukraine look like, if people from different areas of volunteering didn't only know each other, but also joined their efforts for the sake of reaching the mutual aim. Shared experiences and contacts. Supported and motivated each other.

That's why we are developing volunteer communities — connecting people, that are ready for social challenges. They are, indeed, that critical mass, that is implementing fundamental changes.
