NGOs called to organize integration events for Ukrainian families in Latvia

The Society Integration Fund (SIF) has launched an open €200,000 tender for non-government organizations (NGOs) to promote the inclusion of Ukrainian families in Latvia, SIF said June 7.

The tender program “Events and activities for Latvian and Ukrainian families with children” has maximum funding of €12 500 per project, SIF said.

The target group of the project is both Ukrainian and Latvian families with children, ensuring that families from Ukraine are involved in activities.

The aim of the competition is to select projects in which the measures are aimed at achieving the objective of the program, promoting the cohesion of society, strengthening the belonging of Ukrainian families in Latvian society, and promoting the acquisition of Latvian languages and culture. The project backs events and activities like camps, hiking and tours, creative workshops, discussions, Latvian or cultural learning clubs, as well as other activities that are relevant to the objective of the program.

“Opening up training in a strange environment and in Latvian this year will be a major challenge for many Ukrainian children who have fled as a result of the war. In order to allow families with children to adapt to the new environment and to obtain new social links, we will present the Latvian language, history, culture and traditions with various events and activities,” said Zaiga Pūce, director of the SIF administration.
