Rebuilding Ukraine Association Inc (RUAI) through its RE-building Ukraine’s National Identity Though Education (REUNITE) initiative will deliver short-term and skills-centered academic programs in logistics and execution of modern construction and demining to Ukrainian veterans empowering them with critical knowledge and skills required for the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine.
Through its affiliated academic institutions in Ukraine and the USA, REUNITE will offer distance learning modalities to Ukrainian veterans in Ukraine (course-work will be disseminated through local Veterans Education Centers in Ukraine) and to Ukrainian veterans present in the USA for medical rehabilitation.
Graduates of this program will be awarded with certificates and are expected to be employed by affiliated companies performing demining, construction activities in Ukraine and the United States.
Currently, RUAI is consolidating efforts of the Ministry of Veterans Affairs of Ukraine, The Halo Trust, the University of Florida, and several private firms in order to establish an international team aligned with REUNITE’s academic mission.
Additionally, RUAI is considering development of similar academic opportunities for Ukrainian refugees in the USA that are committed to returning to Ukraine.
REUNITE – Rebuilding Ukraine’s National Independence Through Education
Among the many challenges awaiting postwar Ukraine is the massive reconstruction of cities, towns and infrastructure obliterated by Russian aggression. We at RUAI are focused on assisting in the education and training of the workforce — to oversee and implement this huge endeavor through environmentally sustainable and resilient practices.
We are bringing together educational centers, governmental agencies, and private sector leaders to meld their knowledge and experience with two basic objectives:
~ To substantially increase the numbers of qualified Ukrainian engineers and construction specialists,
~ And to ensure that the latest science and technological processes are used to produce the building materials this reconstruction will require.
~ Develop capacity in environmental sustainability and resiliency.
Participants to date in the REUNITE project are.
