Marta Kolomayets: ...These girls are full of ideas, they are enchanted with love, Ukrainian literature, they cite poetry, believe that everything is possible in this life. They see wider, brighter and clearer. They know history, past, as it is necessary to create future. They dream not only about personal happiness, but about improving life of their environment, their communty.

The UWF supported projects within 2013 mini-grants program

Within 2013 mini-grants competition Ukrainian Women's Fund supported 5 projects submitted by winners of this year's First Step to Success contest.

This year Ukrainian Women's Fund introduced a new form for evaluating and making decision concerning projects submitted to the competition. Within the First Step to Success mini-grants program the submitted projects on improving the lives of local communities were evaluated and voted by the applicants themselves. The girls had opportunity to give own evaluations, express their attitude and provide recommendations to ideas described by other participants. In fact, none of projects was left unmarked, each was noted as worthy to be supported, and such «self-evaluation» became a vivid reflection of understanding the problems by active youth.

Participants' evaluations and experts' decisions were summirized to get the final result.


We sincerely congratulate the winners and wish them successful implementation of their projects!
