The EU-funded UN Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme invites you to take part in its social campaign ‘Big Stories of Small Businesses’, which promotes entrepreneurship among internally displaced persons in Ukraine.
You can vote for one of fifteen short videos telling the stories of entrepreneurs from Donetsk, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhia oblasts. Due to the war, they have left their homes in eastern Ukraine and started their own business from scratch – from processing garbage to establishing a museum.
The campaign is already in its fifth year. Over this time, dozens of entrepreneurs have been filmed and received support in promoting their businesses. The three winners this year will also receive support to promote their business.
The deadline for voting is 22 March.
