  • Ukrainian Veterans and Refugees Education and Training Program to Enhance Construction Workforce and Facilitate Post-War Recovery of Ukraine

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.

The REUNITE team is working:

  • To include Mental Health curriculum into all courses and training programs.
  • With the Ukraine Ministry of Veteran Affairs to present a trama conflict resolution and mediation program.

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.

We especially value the contacts that RUAI provided to us, including the HALO trust, a humanitarian organization specializing in demining operations. Furthermore, we recognize Mr. Lang’s extensive feedback provided to us during the development of our projects. The contacts will be of great help to our drone demining project. In the future, we look forward to continuing our collaboration when more opportunities arise.”
