The BEARR Trust is a UK-based organisation set up to help children and other vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the South Caucasus. We help small NGOs working in health and social welfare to build know-how, skills and contacts including with those doing similar work in the UK.
The Small Grants Scheme for 2017 has been announced, deadline for applications is 1 February 2017. Click here for details.
BEARR has held some interesting events in 2016, and has provided small grants to NGOs in Armenia, Russia, and Tajikistan.
The 2016 BEARR Trust’s Annual conference on 11 November discussed “25 Years On: the development of health and welfare NGOs in the BEARR region”. Speakers from Belarus, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Ukraine joined us and gave fascinating presentations – read about it and our speakers here.
In May, we held a conference jointly with the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) in Lviv, Ukraine, for NGOs supporting people displaced by conflict in Ukraine. Details here.
