About Us

When the Russian invasion of Ukraine began, I was sad and terrified. Somehow, I wanted to help people from Ukraine, no matter how minor that help might be. I applied to volunteer in Zagreb, my hometown, but they rejected me because they already had many volunteers - which is great! Still, I wanted to do something, so I contacted people that might help, made a Facebook group and promoted it, gathered learning materials, made the website - and that's how our small initiative started. I want to thank all volunteers for their time, as well as all learners for their interest and indomitable spirit that inspires us all. Ми любимо Україну! ❤️
