With the support of the USAID HOVERLA Project, ANTS, the National Interests Advocacy Network public organization started an important project aimed at supporting the economic development of ten communities in the Volyn region. The organization’s experts visited Rozhyshche, Liubeshiv, Volodymyr, Boratyn, Horokhiv, Kivertsi, Vyshniv, Lokachy, Shatsk, and Zymne to start cooperation with local leaders.
The project involves the development of individual economic strategies for each community, taking into account their peculiarities and challenges, such as martial law, economic difficulties and constant changes in the regulatory and legal framework.
“It’s people, their hard work and dedication, that form the economic foundation through solidarity and interaction.We must create opportunities for investors and community growth every day to overcome challenges. Further European integration and accession to the EU require the teamwork of all key stakeholders. The ANTS Network project, with the support of USAID HOVERLA, lays the foundation for the economic development of Ukrainian communities and will turn our dream into reality,” said Hanna Hopko, Сhairman of the Board of the ANTS Network.
“We believe that for the sustainable development of regions, it is necessary to take into account the opinions of initiative groups, civil society, business and local authorities. Only the interaction of all parties will allow us to create effective strategies that take into account the needs of each community,” emphasized Oleh Radiichuk, project manager of ANTS, the National Interests Advocacy Network.
During their work in communities, representatives of the ANTS Network will conduct a series of training aimed at solving the problems of community development in the face of modern challenges. They will work together with local self-government bodies, business representatives and the public in working groups.
The organization will delve into the problems of each community and develop viable solutions. ANTS Network expresses its gratitude to all partners who joined this important project.
We are working to bring victory closer!
