The key objective for Go Global Ukraine, which is an ongoing initiative, is to upskill care staff within orphanages for children with disabilities, aged 0 – 5 years. Using the Community Based Rehabilitation approach, the goal is to improve the care with a focus on positioning, play and feeding.

"Seeing the students work so hard with the babies and children in Ukraine was the most rewarding thing I have ever had the privilege of being a part of. There were plenty of late nights, tears and struggles but to watch our students grow and develop so incredibly professionally and perhaps more importantly, personally, made it all worth it. A solid foundation on which to build Go Global Ukraine has been made.”

– Ms Kirrily Manning, Go Global Ukraine Coordinator
