The WINGS project: Alyona Buriak's story

March 30, 2022

The WINGS project (Women Included: Nurturing Growth and Security) offers a comprehensive, tailored package of services targeting rural, marginalized and vulnerable women in Ukraine to enhance their economic security by enabling their success as employees and entrepreneurs. Working in four regions – Lviv, Kharkiv, Kyiv and Poltava – WINGS focuses primarily on rural women, who face additional barriers to fulfilling their personal and economic potential due to negative stereotypes, limited access to resources and constrained employment opportunities. Funded by Global Affairs Canada and implemented by Pact, the project is creating a competitive, innovative, sustainable environment for the growth of women-owned small and medium-sized enterprises and providing employment and entrepreneurship opportunities.
