On November 1, 2014 16 Ukrainian NGOs started the implementation of their projects supported as part of the the project "Common future of the Ukrainian society after the Maidan. Promoting mutual understanding and cooperation in conflict prevention", implemented by the Institute for International Cooperation of the German Association of People Universities (DVV International) and the Integration and Development Center for Information and Research with the financial support by the Foreign Office of Germany (Auswartige Amt).

The main objective of the project competition announced in late September for the civic organizations - to promote the formation of a democratic society and a successful local development in Ukraine by improving the capacity of civil society organizations, local communities, including representatives of local authorities in order to sustain a dialogue between different groups of population at the regional and interregional levels.

Totally 16 projects from 11 regions of Ukraine for the amount of 75,000 Euro were supported among 34 project proposals submitted to the grant committee.
All of them address the most urgent problems of the Ukrainian society.

Each project represents a concrete action to overcome the effects of hostilities in the country, or promote a dialogue between different groups of the population and the authorities, including between the IDPs and the local population in different regions of Ukraine. A number of projects are directly aimed at solving problems related to social adaptation and integration of IDPs from the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Donetsk and Lugansk regions, providing them with social and legal protection and integration into local communities, initiating volunteer and self-organization groups programs.

Each project aims at the prevention or resolution of existing conflicts through training of different groups of local communities (NGO leaders, teachers, students, etc.), as well as the expansion of democratic participation in resolving local problematic issues and meeting challenges of sustainable local development.

Projects must be fully implemented until 15 February 2015, so that each organization were able to provide the results achieved at the forum of NGOs involved in the project scheduled for the end of February.
