Progressive Movement Polyana


The leading direction of the NGO "Progressive Movement Polyana" is to improve living standards, namely to provide comfortable and safe conditions for community residents. By uniting like-minded people to achieve common goals and ideas, we try to meet the economic, social, cultural and environmental needs of community members and members of the public organization.

Our dream is empowerment through youth innovation, entrepreneurship and career readiness. Increasing youth civic activism - participation in decision-making and community development. Strengthening the potential of young people to be the driving force of Ukraine and building respect for diversity. Research and study of data, trends and approaches related to youth that determine youth policy and its content.

The problem we are trying to solve:

Institutional development of a youth organization is impossible without funding. Due to lack of funds, our organization cannot implement its own projects aimed at developing youth initiatives. The youth of the local community implements various projects not only with the support of the local budget and business, but also wins grant competitions. At the same time, young people are constantly learning and improving to work fruitfully with the authorities, writing and implementing projects, becoming a driving force of the community and inspiring by example.

The solution we are proposing:

Introduction of new forms, methods and tools of youth work taking into account the best foreign and national practices and consolidation of European approaches to youth policy. This will allow the organization not only to continue its activities, but also to raise it to a qualitatively new level.

The experience of recent decades convincingly proves that sustainable development is demonstrated by those societies that have been able to accumulate and ensure the efficient use of intellectual resources and innovation potential, the main carrier of which is the younger generation. Institutional development, training and partnership - these three components were laid at the very beginning and will remain the priorities of our public organization. We are currently in the process of finding funds to invest our own institutional projects in the direction of youth.

What success looks like for us:

Implementation of new innovative projects. Creating a base where it will be possible to update the organizational structure, forms, methods, tools, principles, norms and rules of functioning of youth initiatives and public organization.

Where we are are based:

Polyana, Zakarpattia Oblast, Ukraine

With funding, we will be able to purchase equipment, materials and attract more young people to participate in community life.

How this funding will strengthen our group:

Raising the level of public organization and expanding its capabilities both at the local and regional levels.

How we gain by being a Spark Fund partner:

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