Addressing the development needs of local communities and societies in general is a task that has traditionally fallen on governments.
While we have seen some progress in Ukraine during the recent years, the gap between the rich and poor has widened and the living conditions for people on the countryside have become worse. Against this setting, we see a large potential for businesses to have a significant and sustainable social impact. We see our work as purposeful, respectful and ethical. We take responsibility for outcomes and embrace transparency and have the highest regard for local customs, traditions and priorities. All our activities are carried out accordance with laws and international norms.
The Village Development Fund centers around four pillars:
