Embrace Friendship:

Join the Buddy Program for Ukraine

Are you eager to make new friends and help others feel welcome in their new community?

The Buddy Program for Ukraine is an initiative designed to help Ukrainians feel at ease and welcome in their new surroundings while offering locals an opportunity to help others while making new friends.

This program aims to promote the exchange of cultural insights, language skills, hobbies, and other interests while fostering friendships. It links Ukrainians with locals through digital and in-person get-togethers, offering engaging activities that encourage new connections and cultural understanding.

Let us take you through this opportunity and show you an overview of the program and how you can become part of this vibrant community:

One-on-One Meetups

We pair each participant with a buddy with similar interests and goals, encouraging connections and support. Buddies meet regularly for casual activities like grabbing a coffee, exploring local attractions, playing sports, or exchanging language skills.

Community Building 

Our Buddy Program for Ukraine is all about community building. We organise fun group events highlighting local culture and Ukrainian themes to promote cross-cultural connections and exchanges. On nature and city walks organized by TEEI, participants can explore stunning landscapes, attend cultural events, or participate in a dinner exchange program that unites local and Ukrainian families over shared dishes and cultural traditions. These events foster new friendships and help participants feel more connected to their local community.

Through these events, we aim to bring participants together, foster cultural exchange, and create opportunities for meaningful connections.
