The British Embassy Kyiv is accepting project proposals from organisations to implement the “Youth engagement: citizens participation through enhanced social action skills and tools” project for the 2020-2021 implementation cycle.
The UK remains committed to supporting Ukraine and its people on the road to democratic development, stability and prosperity. We are funding a range of peacebuilding and conflict management projects, alongside humanitarian assistance to enable Ukraine to deliver key reforms and strengthen democratic institutions.
We believe that active citizenship and engagement of young people in the life of their country at community level could increase Ukraine’s chances of building democracy and better future for its citizens.
This year the British Embassy Kyiv is seeking to support projects in Ukraine that focus on the following theme:

Pilot projects will be funded for 6 months from 1 October 2020 to 31 March 2021 (with the possibility of extension for another year).
