You're reading: Germany provides 100,000 euros to Ukrainian NGOs for human rights projects

Germany has provided 100,000 euros in financial assistance to Ukrainian non-governmental human rights organizations for the implementation of five projects.

"We are rendering assistance for projects in the human rights sphere in Ukraine again. The total cost of these projects is estimated at about 100,000 euros," German Ambassador to Ukraine Hans-Jurgen Heimsoeth said after the signing of agreements with non-governmental organizations in Kyiv on Wednesday.

Germany supported a project by the Regional Press Development Institute. The project foresees the provision of advice to journalists as to how they could efficiently get information and avoid the infringement of their rights during their work.

In addition, the financial assistance was provided to the project "The Strengthening of Civil Control over the Activity of Law Enforcement Agencies" by the Association of Ukrainian Monitors on Human Rights Observation in Law Enforcement, the project "Women’s Equality: Donetsk" by Donetsk NGO Alliance, and the project "Our Kids" by the German-Polish-Ukrainian Society. Moreover, Germany will finance the advanced training of 15 Ukrainian teachers of history at the House of the Wannsee Conference in Berlin via the Ukrainian Center for Holocaust Studies.

The German aid totaled about 120,000 euros in 2009 and 104,000 euros in 2010.
