New Druzhkivka NGO
- Start date: 1 July 2020
- End date: 31 March 2022
Young people are leaving the city of Druzhkivka, in the Donbas region, in search of better opportunities; subsequently, the levels of civic engagement have decreased considerably. New Druzhkivka NGO is trying to reverse the course, serving as a civic hub that brings together civil society for the development of city projects that improve life in Druzhkivka. With EED funding, they will organise workshops and trainings on urban planning and holding focus groups to better understand the needs of the residents of Druzhkivka, especially people with disabilities, elderly and marginalised groups. Their goal is to increase the level of engagement of Druzhkivka residents in local decision-making processes.
