This video shows our training work in Delhi in 2020 among young women .
As we work with Ukrainians who have fled the war and moved to the UK, we have also started identifying how we can support the re-building of the country and help establish a Facework 'Chapter' in Lviv.
THis has involved running a summer camp in Lviv with youth and teachers in 2023 as well as delivering humanitarian supplies.
Check out this page to read more about the work we have done in Lviv and how you can support our work there.
PILOT IN INDIA
It is crucial that any work we develop in India is led and shaped by local young people. To that end we have worked with over 240 young people across Nagaland, Sikkim, West Bengal, Odessa and Delhi.
