We continue to help our media

By Oleksandr Maistrenko | Project Leader

Charity Foundation "Democratic Society", Kyiv, Ukraine.

Our Ukrainian charity non-profit is now working at a charity project for helping media-partners of our non-profit organisation to survive and actively work in war time:

All information is situated:

Project supports our independent media outlets, media-partners of Charity Foundation "Democratic Society", that provides objective and vital information to the communities, especially those suffering from Russia's invasion. Funding provides to our media organizations that conduct training on journalism.

There is a war going on now. Media activity in Ukraine has never been so important. Our correspondents work tirelessly, journalists fight on the information front - with the help of news, texts, posts on social networks, streams on YouTube, etc.

The work of a journalist in wartime is difficult and responsible. Journalists must adhere to safety rules and ethical principles; they perform difficult and responsible work professionally and effectively.

The work of journalists during war is always fraught with difficulties and dangers; journalists have to work in unfavorable conditions, face danger and overcome it.

In their work in wartime, journalists must ensure the safety of their activities and have everything necessary to ensure their safety, including a first aid kit and communications equipment.

Press must have the resources to work.

In order for the newspaper to expand the circle of its readers, support for the development of the newspaper is needed to make it better, so that journalists are motivated to work at full strength.

Currently, during the war, not all advertising products can be advertised, so now there is a shortage in funds.

During the war, all state financial resources, as well as the funds of the population, are directed towards producing and purchasing of weapons to defend ourselves for surviving, for military personnel, participating in hostilities, creating a gigantic shortage of funds for refugees and all the civilians.

Our Foundation helps independent mass media and our correspondents have a support in work.

The project support our media, partners of our CF "Democratic Society", one of which is a newspaper "Ukrainian Youth".

Our newspaper "Ukrainian Youth" is read by officials of Ukraine, people's deputies, youth, ordinary people.

Our newspaper provides objective and important information to communities, especially those affected by Russian invasion. It is also supports our media organizations, which stimulate the improvement of professional skills of journalists, cyber and physical safety of journalists, as well as the explaining to journalists their rights and their protection during war.

We support our mass media, which is now in a bad situation during military operations.

Journalists of our editorial office work non-stop in order for our readers to learn the most up-to-date information in the period of war in Ukraine as quickly as possible.

Journalists work with published only true and verified information. Our journalists defend freedom of speech and democratic values.
Project helps to provide the resources to work for our journalists, for the implementation of freedom of transport movement of our journalists, for conducting interviews, attending press-conferences, covering important events, posting articles, purchasing gadgets and journalists equipment. With true and verified information, we don't give invaders a chance in the newsroom of the battle. To resist any kind of propaganda, we support our journalists.

To help media in our country, to help children of refugees to continue getting higher education, develop journalism among children of the refugees, our foundation provides activity in the organization of free tutoring, free practice for students, free internships for students of higher educational institutions in the specialty "journalism", introduction of non-formal education in educational institutions, based on human rights principles, holding cultural and integration events.

Charity Foundation "Democratic Society" provides projects to help students - children of refugees from the war in the journalistic speciality, a project of an aid to the main base for free internship - to our newspaper "Ukrainian Youth".

Internship is included in the process of studying students at universities, and the organization of this internship, tuition, also requires funds.

So in that period we continued to provide aid and support of the newspaper "Ukrainian Youth", which is the main means of media of our Foundation .
