Today, the region of Eastern Europe and Central Asia faces a variety of challenges.
It is a high emitter of greenhouse gases, and suffers from the world’s highest rise of HIV cases. One-third of people find themselves left out of society.
Not all governments are responsive to citizens. Women are often excluded from decision-making. Some countries face the aftermath of conflict; others face the risk of natural disaster.

We aim to:
- Foster the inclusion of marginalized people into economic, social and political life
