Buddy Program Ukraina

The Buddy program for Ukraina helps Ukrainian refugees to gain a feeling of belonging and comfort in the community.

This program aims to help Ukrainians to make new friends and learn a new language.

Locals in the community are paired with Ukrainian refugees and support them as they transition into a new community. Support can range from helping them open a new bank account to going out for a cup of coffee.

Language courses
  • Making new friends: online or offline
