Razom was born out of the Revolution of Dignity in 2014 when millions of people worked together and risked their lives to build a pathway to a better future for Ukraine. Maidan successfully cleared the path for new leadership and reforms, and inspired countless citizens to get involved in the process. Soon after, in an effort to stifle and punish Ukraine’s progress, Russia invaded and annexed Crimea and began a war in Eastern Ukraine that it continues to fund and sustain today.
With such conditions some might think the odds are stacked against Ukraine, but Razom is here to break that narrative. Everyday we see individuals and organizations working to create opportunities and a better future for themselves and their communities. Our mission is to help accelerate their individual and collective contributions through projects that unlock Ukraine’s potential and build toward a more prosperous, democratic nation.
Razom initiates short and long-term projects, or collaborates on existing projects with partner organizations, which help Ukraine stay on the path of fostering democracy and prosperity. We’ve grown a diverse community of volunteers and collaborators across the US and Ukraine which allows us to create spaces where people can meet, partner, and execute on these projects.
In a very short time Razom has built an inspiring network of partners, volunteers, and donors that fuel our community, and consistently activate people in the United States and Ukraine to help Ukraine unlock its potential. Our projects are designed to have tangible, immediate manifestations of impact and provide opportunities for scalable growth ensuring that impact lasts. Check out our Annual Reports to learn more.
