During her path, she has been coordinating several projects for youth in difficult life circumstances and/or living in rural areas, people with disabilities and families who are temporarily displaced because of war.

All her adult life she was willing to make society a safe place for everyone and work with protection of human rights and the full-scale invasion of Russia in her homeland gave her confidence her choice.

“Youth is our future so it has to be heard. This program for me is a way to make sure that the voices of young Ukrainians will be counted on places of their residence, in their communities. Moreover, SCO’s in 4 communities will gain skills on implementation of projects specifically designed for youth.” – Anastasiia Bochan
