Since the Russian Ukrainian war started in 2022 the focus of our Foundation has shifted mostly to helping Ukraine in these difficult times and to helping Ukrainian refugees where we can and we will keep doing as long as needed. Also when the war will be finished (hopefully soon) we will join the efforts of the international community to rebuild Ukraine and the Ukrainian society. Get in touch with us for specific projects or please donate as Ukraine needs it.
DiDEE is active in Eastern Europe in several countries from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria to the smaller countries from the Caucasus (Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan). Project range from EU supported project by the European Commission from private supported projects by international organisations and individuals.

FoCUS of ACTIVITIES
Democracy is the ideal government structure where everyone in the society can take part in the decision making process and future of their country. We at Foundation DiDEE believe democracy will lead towards a better future in Eastern Europe.
Human rights are a right for everyone to have and to be respected. Normally dictators or authoritarian regimes don't take Human rights serious and this is where DiDEE takes action. We believe in HR and educating young people and bring positive change.
Freedom of Speech
Freedom of speech are very related towards democracy and human rights as freedom of speech is the basis for both. However in many countries freedom of speech needs a constant attention in the society so we at DiDEE love to focus on this.
