US Will Allocate 38 Million Dollars to Strengthen the “National Identity” of Ukrainian Youth
OREANDA-NEWS. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) intends to allocate 38 million dollars for the implementation of the programme named Ukraine National Identity through Youth Activity.
The department believes that this project will help young Ukrainians determine their own vision of the nation. “The purpose of the Activity is to foster vested ownership among young people in Ukraine’s democratic, European future by further mobilizing youth leadership of a values-based conception of Ukrainian identity grounded in innovation, engagement, and pluralism,” the USAID document says. The programme is aimed at young people aged from 10 to 35 years.
According to the Agency, nowadays Ukrainian young men have the opportunity to make a democratic transition, since young politicians are in power. The USAID adds that Ukrainian values have been threatened for several years due to Russian propaganda.
