«Reform of Decentralization is of high priority for Ukraine. Our Project prepared a background for the process of decentralization in Ukraine we supported communities to self-mobilize, and to manage their lives by themselves. Now we can see that implementation of our projects is impossible without support on local level and from authorities, local selve-governing bodies and without initiative itself” underlined Ms. Myroslava Didukh Project Manager of the Delegation of the European Union to Ukraine
“We work in Ukraine since 2008 and we have a solid experience of project implementation in Ternopil region. I have been to Shumsk several times and I was impressed by people who are so willing to work and support. It is easy to work because we feel support on local level. This is a key for success» stressed International Project Manager of the CBA Project Mr. Hendrik van Zyl
