Social entrepreneurs stand by the needs of refugee children from Ukraine

Social entrepreneurs stand by the needs of refugee children from Ukraine

“Children in Ukraine are exposed to the traumatic experience of war, with tanks and weapons, they were forced to leave their homes. When the war started, we decided to become the most beautiful memory of the war for the refugee kids.”, said Igor, the founder of EduJoc – a social enterprise in Moldova that produces educational toys for children.

The social business distributed for free over 300 elastic toys, that help these refugee kids express their emotions by creating stories with these cubes. They also offered over 200 puzzle maps with the regions of Ukraine so that the little ones can continue the educational process and create a new healthy routine and feel connected to their homeland.

“A new generation of Ukrainian kids may grow in exile, their lives will never be the same, they rely on our help and solidarity, together we can provide them some learning materials to help them to start a new healthy routine, realise that the life is going on.”, shared Igor.

The EUnlocking project (2020-2022) is funded under the European Union’s EU4Youth initiative, with the aim of unlocking the potential of young social entrepreneurs in Moldova and Ukraine. The project helps to foster the social entrepreneurial potential of young people in Moldova and Ukraine by establishing a favourable ecosystem for social enterprises, as well as by inspiring and supporting more young social entrepreneurs to develop and sustain their innovative solutions for the promotion of social inclusion and environmental sustainability across both countries.

The project is implemented by the Gustav-Stresemann-Institut (e.V) (GSI) – lead organisation (Germany), AXA Management Consulting (Moldova), ECO-RAZENI Association (Moldova), Egalite International (Ukraine), National Assistance and Information Centre for NGOs in Moldova CONTACT (Moldova) and Pro NGO! e.V. (Germany). The project is co-funded by the European Union under its EU4Youth Programme.

Visible Impact is partnering with GSI to conduct several project activities.
