Mission Ukraine

What we have done so far:

In 2013 the team the inaugural Mission Ukraine team did a mix of things while there in sub zero weather and snow, including:

  1. Designing and painting an indoor mural in the reception area of the new residential wing:
  1. Visits to families in the community;
  1. Some general maintenance around the Centre;
  1. Some cultural visits to rural communities and schools.

Because of the outbreak of civil war and the invasion from Russia, the 2014 trip was cancelled.

In 2015 the team were able to realise a long-held dream of the Centre staff – to paint an outdoor mural on a very large wall facing the children’s playground. They also painted a lot of outside railings with the help of a local school, The Lyceum. And there were visits to families in the community, and a cultural visit to an historic town, Baturyn.

2016 saw the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the Centre, so much of the work done was in preparation for that, which included repairs to the large outdoor mural that was damaged over the winter; painting more railings; developing an edible, sensory garden for the children in partnership with The Lyceum School; and working with the children in their various therapies each morning.

Our hosts are very keen for us to continue our partnership with them and want to stress that its only 5% of the country that is affected by the war, that safety for our team is paramount, and that the area we go to is 600km away from any danger areas.

Who we need for the next trip

We'll be looking for a mixed team of students with particular skills in nursing, building maintenance, primary teaching, music therapy, and gardening skills.

A total team of seven is what the Centre can handle with accommodation arrangements.

What we hope to achieve

  • do something practical with people overseas who have less than us
  • to leave the school in a better state than we arrived
  • develop sustainable international relationships as well as genuine research opportunities
  • build on the success of Missions Croatia and Botswana
  • give our students the opportunity to participate in life-changing experience which clearly links with our Employability Strategy, and helps to achieve our Corporate Plan
  • enhance our University's profile as being a stimulating and adventurous place to study
