In Ukraine, project work in the trade sector began in 2008 with the modernization of vocational training for carpenters and painters at the Higher Vocational Art School in Lviv. Additional training projects followed in Kyiv, Vinnytsia and Kharkiv. In addition to painters and carpenters, signmakers and stonemasons are now also being trained. The SFB, the foundation we created to promote building and construction, which also develops and implements its own projects in the realm of higher education for urban and spatial planning assists us in coordinating our projects for the trades.
After Russia started war against Ukraine, we immediately began organizing and implementing humanitarian aid for Ukraine. We support Ukrainian and international aid organizations and help our partners to cope with the difficult working conditions.
