NGO ON TIME
eco-system for social changes driven by youth
Ukraine must be integrated in the world context and european space as well. After recent events we understand what must be done. But we still need proper infrastructure, intellectual producst that may shift the mind and expend prospects. It’s especially important for youth that is looking for personal professional development. They must find opportunities in their country, take pro-active position and make an impact here in Ukraine. The last year has shown that Europe is interested in stable and powerful Ukraine as a part of the European community. In such case Europe will florish as well. We believe that by our activites we make a direct investment in making Ukraine truly different form what it was 20-30 year before.
During 2015 we aim to:

2. Build capacity of youth to start social enterprises and suggest new solutions to old problems with a help of strong educational environment that we want to suggest them.
