Latest news from BEARR


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.

BEARR held some interesting events in 2016, and has provided small grants to NGOs in Armenia, Russia, and Tajikistan. BEARR’s annual lecture in June was on the rule of law in the region. In May, we held a conference with the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) in Lviv, Ukraine, for NGOs supporting people displaced by conflict in Ukraine. Details here.
