About



SUN Leaders Program supports 45 young leaders and their social projects in Ukraine
.
We enable leaders to focus on rebuilding and transforming Ukraine, and help projects become sustainable and scale.

Right now we are launching the first cohort of 15 leaders, and fundraising for their scholarships fund.
One full scholarship for one leader is €3000.

As the Russian invasion started, almost everyone in Ukraine became a volunteer, trying to support in any possible way people around them. The war also brought economic decline, as many of people lost their income and savings. Despite this, there are tremendous initiatives and many inspiring young leaders who are getting things done and have an enormous impact.

At our Leaders Program, we will support the best of them financially and provide them with mentorship, so they could focus on their work, supporting people in need and rebuilding Ukraine.

You can amplify impact by donating to our Program, and helps projects and their leaders grow.


Why is it important?
  • War in Ukraine has been going on for more than half a year. While the immediate response is now mostly covered, we need to step in and support projects with longer-term goals and impact, to work on rebuilding and transforming the country.
  • Projects are underfunded. Big international organizations get most of the donations. While small local initiatives do work in the fields and get no support. Leaders have to combine working to make a living with their activism. They can’t fully focus on their initiatives and create as much impact as they could.
  • Leaders need guidance, mentoring and learning opportunities. Some leaders started volunteering without any expertise or knowledge, just because it had to be done. Other activists have been in the field for some time, but had to change their focus due to new realities of war. Many of them burn out due to overworking themselves and being underfunded.

What kind of projects do we support?
  • Resolving an actual social problem in sectors of healthcare, education, economy and entrepreneurship, equality, sustainable cities, and Ukraine’s Integration in the EU
  • Already existing and showing results
  • Scalable in other cities of Ukraine, or nationwide

Who are the leaders?
  • These leaders help their communities to live through the war, and help Ukrainian society as a whole to implement effective long-lasting change
  • Ukrainian citizens, based in Ukraine, implementing a project in Ukraine
  • Are 18-30 years old
  • Ready to take responsibility and act

How do we achieve their growth?
For 6 months, the project leader:
  • Receives a monthly scholarship
  • Gets mentored on their project growth
  • Gets access to the community of leaders, network of experts, and informational resources
  • Reports on the project progress
We monitor projects progress, and guide leaders towards growth and sustainability.
