The beginning of the history of the HUB for IDP and war-affected children: the first ready-made rooms thanks to the support of the PIN-UP Foundation
One summer day, almost all of Dnipro gathered at the Sich Yacht Club to help us raise money for a brand new HUB, where children affected by the war will study 🫂
Then we raised 500,000 UAH, and they were spent on repair work: leveling walls, floors, painting surfaces and so on.
And thanks to our cool friends from the PIN-UP Foundation, we were able to equip classrooms:
🚪 Desks where the kids will learn English and Ukrainian, listen to lectures on fine arts and create something interesting at master classes
🚪 Magnetic marker boards, which will clearly show the topics for study and homework. So you won’t be able to make excuses for not seeing something 🙃
🚪Easels and stationery for painting on canvas for our future artists. Thanks to such art supplies, still lifes and landscapes will be even brighter, and the children’s talents will be revealed even better.
🚪Bean bag chairs for the play area, cinema, trainings, various events, where you can sit comfortably and enjoy the surrounding space.
🚪Tables and shelves for the area where adults work: teachers and volunteers also stay in the HUB all the time and therefore have their own separate area for comfortable work.
Let’s get to know the PIN-UP Foundation a little more 👀.
This is a charitable foundation that brings together volunteers, professionals, and the international community with the same values aimed at developing our Ukraine.
Together, they constantly help everyone who needs it.
Each program is aimed at supporting socially vulnerable groups and helps develop important areas of our lives: education, sports, and healthcare. And, of course, the way our country will recover.

We are grateful that we are not alone on this path and have such great support and help.
Expect to be invited to the new HUB very soon. So stay tuned and be sure to visit us at 🏻
Doing everything for the future together with Rise 💙💛
