Our dream is to create an ecosystem in the city of Dobropolye, which would include public spaces, a business incubator for young people, and a community center for spending time. So that everyone between the ages of 14 and 35 can realize their full potential. We also have the SKARB health center, which is intended for families with children under 14 years old.

The problem we are trying to solve:

This is important first of all for the development of society, because the most valuable resource is people. And if you give youth support and impetus to development, then the world around us will become better.

Before the creation of our community center in the city, there were no opportunities for development for young people: there were only two options either to go to the mine to work, or to leave the city. Now part of the youth is ready to stay in the city and develop it.

The solution we are proposing:

At this stage, we really need the institutional support of our organization, since a lot has changed in structure and there are options for further sustainable development after the creation of a social enterprise. This type of support will help us reach a new level in the development of civil society, as well as organize systematic support for the youth of our community. This type of support will help us reach a new level in the development of civil society, as well as organize systematic support for the youth of our community.


What success looks like for us:

We have been doing this work for more than 10 years, we have a network of more than 100 partner organizations, we are representatives of Active Citizens in the Donetsk region, we cooperate with the regional youth department, we have created the first youth center in the region. All these achievements speak of a significant influence on youth, because most of our graduates have realized their dreams and projects, many have gone to study abroad, have become more competitive in the labor market

Where we are are based:

Dobropillya, Ukraine

Funding we are applying for:

$10,000 - $12,000 per year

How this funding will help us achieve our goals:

We want to attract experts who will help develop a further development strategy for our association of active people, as well as create a social enterprise for sustainable development and support of youth initiatives. We already had an art cafe, but due to the pandemic it had to be closed. All the equipment remained, but part of it needs to be updated and the format of work changed for the delivery of ready-made meals.

How this funding will strengthen our group:

We will be able to ensure the work of the community center during the period of time while the social enterprise is being created, which in the future will finance the work of employees, as well as create a fund to support youth initiatives.

How we gain by being a Spark Fund partner:

We would like to have the opportunity to invite experts to develop a strategy for the development of our organization, pay for the work of administrators of a community center, create a social enterprise, conduct volunteer schools and open a business incubator for young people.

How we would like to spend a grant through the Spark Fund:

We plan to spend on the salaries of the community center administrator, accountant and cleaning the premises. We also want to conduct three series of trainings for youth on the topics: volunteering, social entrepreneurship and launch a business incubator for youth. Also buy two laptops for organizing work and holding events in the community center. As our contribution, we provide equipment for the creation of a social enterprise, which in the future will contain the activities of the community center.

Our Annual Income:

70,650 EUR

Our Organization Structure:

We have democratic decision-making by all members of the organization, we have a council of investors who elect the board for operational activities. All participants vote on serious matters. All members of the organization are equal and have an equal number of votes. We do not lead young people, we create conditions for their development. We listen to what they want to realize or learn and do our best to develop their potential.
