Join our team in rebuilding the country with BUR
Take freedom responsibly. To solve problems and generate solutions – what`s this if not your responsibility? The responsibility for yourself and your environment. For your country, after all. Being responsible means not to be indifferent, not to stay aside, participate. Try!
If not you, then who?
East and West? Together!
Leave stereotypes about different Ukrainians. Travel around Ukraine and meet people from all over the country. When, if not during joint work, will you be able to get to know the person best? The interaction of Ukrainians as one big cool team – it`s BUR.
We teach how to use the acquired knowledge, provide you with the support of a like-minded community, and give opportunities not only to study but to implement your boldest ideas as well. To be able means to act and make your dreams come true. It is BUR.
BUR arose in 2014 as a volunteer action of the Ukrainian educational platform (then “Lviv educational foundation”) to restore houses destroyed by the war in the East of Ukraine.
The spirit of good neighborliness and unity, which the organizers of the action have felt, started the history of the largest volunteer movement in Ukraine.
In cooperation with UA Comix, we created and published a comix, based on real events in Kramatorsk, about the creation of the program “Building Ukraine Together”.
BUR volunteers rebuild facilities damaged by the war, set up short- and long-term shelters for those that lost their homes due to the Russian aggression, become ambassadors of change in local communities through an extended volunteering program and develop as leaders and managers thanks to BUR LAB and mentorships.
In 2019 BUR started its activities in regions uniting active youth in Ukrainian cities. Thus, the first centers, which have organized one to two days volunteering actions of mutual assistance and good neighborliness BURchyky came to be.
You may volunteer with BUR by devoting your time or/and experience or to become one of BURfriends and support our activity.
