Since 2017, as an expert in local government and community development, Zoryna contributed to a number of projects funded by the UK Embassy in Ukraine as part of their wider programme of support to the reform of decentralisation in Ukraine.
“On behalf of “The Library Country” Foundation, and personally from me, please accept our deep appreciation for your work, support and understanding. Our project really benefited from your participation and all the participants of our events, including me, obtained new useful knowledge and expanded their point of view on many things. Some 35 participants attended the event in Terebovlya and 65 in Kyiv. Also we have already more than 1000 views of the event at Facebook.
