Win a grant and bake bread for the community: terms of the competition

The "Sharing the Bread" micro-grant competition aims to solve the problem of inclusion of IDPs in the social life of communities.

The GURT Resource Center informs about this possibility.

What is this initiative for?

According to the UN Commission, there are up to 8 million internally displaced persons in Ukraine today. Often these people live without friends and support from the local community. In addition, they often do not have a job and lose their usual income. They see the future as depressing and unpromising.

That is why the Foundation named after the princes-benefactor Ostroskiy, with the support of the Global Fund for Community Foundations, created the "Sharing Bread" initiative. It aims to integrate IDPs into the social and economic life of communities.

  • This is an effective occupational and art therapy.
