Humanitarian Response Plan

Self-Organisation Programmes

Training programmes for the leaders of NGOs and regional communities in different parts of Ukraine make it possible to implement changes and modernize governance already today.

The years 2013-2014 demonstrated that Ukraine would not have got through it had it not been for self-organisation and networking. Russian Federation didn’t achieve its goals, as the volunteers’ fast response and the creation of self-help and self-organisation networks saved Ukraine from falling apart. Thus the occupation of the regional centers in the East didn’t lead to the occupation of the whole country.


In 2022 Russian army reinvading Ukraine. And we need that the third sector, Donbass communities and the communities all over Ukraine take quick action again. The value that we teach non-governmental organisation is the readiness and efficiency of self-organisation.


Support Community Self-Help now to enable more self-organised communities save more lives in Ukraine and in every part of Eastern Europe. These networks and skills are now helping us keep Ukraine alive and fighting valiantly against Russia’s new atrocities.

Storytelling and the tool of oral history
