Multi-club project in The Ukraine


Stockholm International participates in an international multi-club project together with 9+ other clubs.

The Project

The project was initiated by RK Moscow International (RKMI) at the multi-club workshop in Stockholm in September 2007. 9+ clubs have registered an interest in participating. The project intends to expand and improve a rehabilitation centre for disadvantaged and homeless children in Lubny near Poltava in Ukraine. Moscow International intends to apply for grants from The Rotary Foundation, so-called Matching Grant projects.

In 2005 RC Lubny started a project together with a local aid organisation to set up a centre for homeless children in Lubny. The centre opened in 2005 in a former nursery school. The current project focuses on an expansion and improvement designed to give the Centre:

  1. An "emergency centre" for mothers and children
  2. A washroom
  3. Day surgery facilities
  4. Technical equipment for teaching
  5. A new boiler
  6. A waste water treatment


Financial support for the project is sought by RC Moscow International with the Rotary Foundation. According to the regulatory framework for so-called "Matching Grant " projects, the project has the following partners:
