"DARE" tries to help children achieve their educational and personal goals in life.

We want our children to become mature, happy and responsible adults, able to develop and realize their full potential in life. We want to help them feel their own strength,  fulfill their own dreams and  overcome barriers. To give them self-confidence and faith as well as the inner motivation to continue on the way to their goals.

The project "Social care for families with children" was developed to lower the level of child neglect and social orphanhood by offering families in difficult living conditions assistance and trainings in parental skills.

Many orphanages in Ukraine house some hundred children. Under those conditions it is very difficult to give attention to every child. An alternative to those big institutions are family type children's homes, with no more than 10 children in each house, constituting a family.

The Youth and Family Creativity  Center "Otradnoe" was established in 1996. Today, 500 children and more than 200 parents attend 18 different circles, classes and courses for free.

The project offers social support  for victims of National Socialism and survivors of  concentration camps as well as survivors of the Leningrad blockade, victims of forced labor in Germany, participants in the partisan movement and others, who suffered from Nazi persecution during the Second World War. It tries to intensify their social life drawing them into active interaction with their civil surroundings..

In 1999, the foundation began to organize medical and social aid for lonely people of old age without relatives. Today the "Sustainable system of home care in Ukraine" guarantees that  almost 60 elderly people receive social, medical and everyday assistance.

Since 2011 the foundation is active in palliative care.  The aim is to improve the life quality of seriously and incurably ill people and their families. This year, we are doing this as a member of the network "Palliative measures: social and medical care for people in need of mobile palliative care".  

In February 2001, thanks to the European Community Humanitarian Office (ECHO) and with the financial help of the international organization "Caritas Austria" we were able to open the club of active old age "Second Youth".

Legal, social and psychological assistance to forcibly displaced persons from the war zone in Eastern Ukraine, who live now in the Kharkiv region.

This project offers the unique possibility of combining an active holiday with health recovery and at the same time experiencing a great amount of positive energy and emotions.

The summer camp is for children from IDP's and children from vulnerable families in the city of Kharkiv.
