Last year, a German-Ukrainian working group on vocational training and internship was set up on the initiative of our former IFP participant Ronny Böhme.

The idea is to give young people from Ukraine, who graduated from Higher Vocational School, the possibility to get an apprenticeship in Germany for several months.

We have already found interested companies (farming, construction, dentistry) and hope to start our first pilot project in autumn. For now our regional focus is in Rivnenska, Ternopilska and Kharkivska oblasts, and our partner in Germany is a NGO in Saxony (Bautzen).

This project is realized with many other partners in Ukraine and Germany, and we are proud that people who came from abroad to volunteer at MKUA many years ago are still committed to our organization and Ukraine.
