Repair Together is an organization that has been engaging volunteers from around the world for over a year to rebuild villages and homes affected by the russian invasion. The organization's most famous initiative is rave toloka (clean-ups), events during which volunteers dismantle rubble caused by russia's armed aggression to the tune of hot DJ sets. The international housing reconstruction camp is a new project of the organization, which is open to everyone.


Building Toloka Camp: features of the initiative


The international camp will last for 3 months, until October 10, 2023. During this time, the organizers plan to rebuild from 9 to 20 completely destroyed houses. The project involves professional builders who will help and guide the volunteers. The reconstruction will take place in the Ivanivka community of Chernihiv Oblast.

In addition, the Repair Together team offers not only direct participation in the reconstruction of the housing, but also a large number of parallel activities for the camp participants. In particular, the organizers will hold a series of cultural workshops, networking events and master classes, as well as at least 5 film screenings and 7 concerts. In addition, volunteers will be able to go on excursions around Chernihiv.

Unfortunately, today traveling in Ukraine is associated with a certain number of risks due to the armed aggression of the russian federation.
