General information

We are devastated to inform you that the dormitories of Lviv Polytechnic National University, a prominent educational institution in Ukraine, have been severely damaged due to a missile strike on Lviv on 6 July, 2023. This catastrophic event has left hundreds of students, who were volunteering, weaving camouflage nets and generally actively supporting the Ukrainian army, homeless and in dire need of support.

Why this is important

The project "Rekindling Hope" was initiated in response to a devastating missile strike on Lviv, Ukraine, which caused severe damage to the dormitories of Lviv Polytechnic National University. The circumstances that led us to undertake this project were the dire situation faced by the students who were residing in those dormitories at the time of the attack.
The affected students were actively involved in volunteering efforts, including weaving camouflage nets and supporting the Ukrainian army. They were playing an important role in their community, dedicating their time and efforts to make a positive impact. However, the missile strike left them homeless and in urgent need of support.

Our project is geared towards various communities and users who share a common interest in supporting education, rebuilding communities, and providing aid to those affected by conflicts or disasters. It particularly resonates with:
1. Students and education advocates. This project aims to restore the living spaces of students who were actively involved in supporting their community and pursuing their education. Students and those who believe in the transformative power of education can connect with the cause and contribute to rebuilding their fellow students' lives.
2. Humanitarian and relief organizations. Organizations working in the field of humanitarian aid and disaster response can identify with the urgency of the situation and collaborate with us to provide support and resources for the affected students. They understand the importance of rebuilding communities and empowering individuals affected by conflicts or disasters.
3. Philanthropists and donors. Individuals who are passionate about making a positive impact and helping those in need can connect with our project. Our emphasis on community engagement and collective action allows philanthropists and donors to see the direct impact of their contributions and join us in rekindling hope for the affected students.
4. Local and global communities. The project seeks support from both local and global communities. Locally, the project connects with the residents of Lviv and Ukraine, encouraging them to come together and rebuild their educational institutions. Globally, individuals concerned about the wellbeing and future of students impacted by conflicts and disasters can rally behind our cause.

By highlighting the shared interests, problems, and tastes of these communities and users, we aim to create a sense of connection and empathy, enabling them to understand the importance of supporting the affected students and contributing to their recovery.
