About us 

«Brave to rebuild» is a volunteer initiative restoring cities and villages after Russian invasion in Ukraine.

Every weekends and on weekdays, the volunteers of the initiative go to villages in the Kyiv region, mainly in Irpin, Bucha, Gostomel and surrounding villages. We also work in Kharkiv and Kherson regions. As part of the tolk, volunteers dismantle rubble, repair damaged residential buildings and social institutions, so that life can return to how it was, prior to the destruction by the war.

In addition to debris removal and construction, the initiative collects and distributes humanitarian aid, which helps people rebuild their homes and survive the winter.

Additionally, we repair and transfer used bicycles from Europe for the public needs of the community. A research department was also launched.

We work for those who remain in their city or village to further develop their lives and Ukraine.
