Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, countries across Eastern Europe have sought to overcome its legacies: censorship, propaganda, corruption and inadequate social services. Pact has been beside them, working to build new democratic futures.
For nearly a decade, Pact has supported local organizations in Ukraine working to advance democratic reforms, build demand for fundamental European values and forge a robust civil society. In addition to providing them funding to carry out their work, Pact helps strengthen the capacity of Ukrainian civil society organizations through analyses, training, mentorship, coalition building and more.
Pact also supports Ukrainian organizations that are responding to HIV and AIDS and advancing gender equality and the rights of women and girls.
In Belarus, Pact has worked since 2005 to foster stronger civic institutions and civic engagement and effectively inform citizens to advocate for positive social change. Our partners have included grassroots activists, policy groups and think tanks.
