    In November 2022, the IER, in partnership with the French organization ERIM (Equal Rights & Independent Media), launched the project "Emergency Support to Civil Society and Media in Response to the Ukraine War (ESU)". The project is funded by the European Union and aims to strengthen the resilience and effectiveness of war-affected civil society organizations and actors in Ukraine, as well as to support civil society affected by the war in Ukraine in carrying out their work.

    The year 2022 in Ukraine began with the war. Civil society organizations and voluntary initiatives were among the first to organize, and their contribution was and remains crucial in light of the military threat to the state and the sovereignty of the country. This is why it is important to support and encourage these associations to continue working for the victory, which is why this competion is designed. 

    The objectives of the competion are

    to support CSOs and voluntary communities that implement humanitarian and voluntary initiatives for solving the pressing problems caused by the war;  

    to inform society of current challenges and ways to assist citizens.
