Almost 8 years ago, the team of the Center for Innovational Education "Pro.Svit" began to make changes through education.
Today we can be proud of hundreds of graduates of all-Ukrainian educational programs, dozens of implemented projects and our own educational crowdfunding platform GoFundEd, thanks to which more than 200 educators were able to realize their educational dreams.
The "Pro.Svit" team responds to the challenges of the time and reformats its work to meet the urgent needs of society.
Today, together with the Illuminate Foundation, we are launching our new project "Pro.Support", which involves working with families who have been forcibly displaced by the war.

The project will create a network of communities for safe and comfortable communication, finding resources, restoring their potential and realizing themselves in new conditions. It also provides support for the volunteer movement, providing tools to prevent burnout and rapid recovery of emotional and physical condition.

Due to the fact that thousands of people were forced to move temporarily inside the country, we are starting to organize the work of support groups within the project "PRO. Support"
Pro.Svit team invites to join mutual support groups for people who have been forced to temporarily change their place of residence due to the war.

The format of work involves the creation of support groups of 10-16 people.
It is expected that 2 psychologists will work with each group during 7-10 classes in offline format.
The project envisages live meetings (meeting cities will appear later) once a week in a warm and cozy atmosphere.

Correctional and developmental classes and art therapy will be organized for children of the group members during our meetings.
Support groups have the following goals:
to form a circle of like-minded people who have common experience and can communicate openly about their condition and problems in a safe space, exchange useful information, get help, support, new knowledge and experience;
to teach participants emotional and behavioral self-regulation, to improve their psycho-emotional state;
identify and provide resources to meet the individual needs of participants and their families;
to increase the ability of participants to organize and control the processes of their own lives and the functioning of their families in the process of integration into the realities of territorial communities they stay in;
to promote the possibilities of professional and personal realization of each member of the group.
Locations where the groups operate: Beregovo, Ternopil, Velyki Budyshcha, Dykanka, Poltava.

We continue to expand the network, so all the news about the next groups, their results and successes, as well as information about new locations will be announced on our Facebook page, so stay tuned and stay connected!

Below we share the results of the functioning of support groups.
Pro.Svit continues to work with educational communities
The Pro.Svit team has already begun work on developing a manual for schools during the war. We will create tools - short and effective tips and checklists for school staff, which will help in difficult times to work effectively and solve urgent problems.
Education is our superpower! These words have sustained us throughout all these difficult months.
Today, many schools are centers for the temporarily displaced people, volunteer headquarters, fundraising or counseling centers and so on. Teachers prepare lunches, weave nets, coordinate the purchase of humanitarian aid or ammunition for our soldiers.
That is why we decided to open online psychological support groups "Pro. Support for educators".
During these online support groups:

✔️ educators will be able to restore internal resources in order to continue to perform their work effectively;

✔️ we have also added a learning component that educators can use in practice.
More than 200 participants have registered with us for groups, now we have 8 active groups and 30+ educators with whom we work.

Information on new groups will be announced on our Facebook page, so stay tuned and stay connected.
