Support to the «City of Goodness»

Creation of “City of Goodness” ( ) in Chernivtsi – is a project by CF “I am the Furture of Urkaine”. The prototype of the project is working since 2017 in the rented premises. The key idea of ​​the project is to create a center that would become a shelter for mothers and their children, who are in a difficult situation together, so that children do not go to orphanages. 90% of these children have biological parents. Poverty, lack of proper living conditions, domestic violence are the main causes of children being separated with loved ones. More than 200 mothers have been found in the prototype of the City of Goodness: orphans, homeless, graduates of orphanages and victims of domestic violence. The graduates of the center get a profession, job, can rent proper housing on their own. They have overcome the crisis and are now helping other women to overcome their misery. 540 children were rescued from orphanages, many of them children with disabilities.

Since 2018 we support project by CF “I am the Furture of Urkaine” – creation of “City of Goodness” in Chernivtsi.

We structure needs and form small sub-projects, for instance:

1. Kitchen and Dining room in City of Goodness (2018)

The aim of the project is to provide living conditions in terms of the hassle-free ability to cook for women and children, and to provide living conditions in terms of making money by cooking gastronomy for sale, and to provide equipment and an appropriate knowledge base for potential cooking as a profession. The project took into account technological and hygienic standards, as well as modern requirements for the safety of kitchens and efficient kitchen equipment. All tasks were implemented in a fairly narrow space. In addition, a special master class program was demonstrated by Auсhan employees for children.

2. Ecological autonomous sewage system for City of Goodness (2018)

The aim of the project was to complement the crisis center with an autonomous sewage system which is an important element of modern infrastructure. Satisfactory sanitation in such crisis centers is an important necessity, as the residents of it are women with kids who need thorough care. Residents of crisis center “City of Goodness” are acquainted with the environmental and economic sewage system in order to set an example of a different life quality level and to promote the of environmental awareness and conciousness.
