Why “Week of Trust”?

The crisis of trust, widely observed in Ukraine, is hindering the life and development of all levels in society. It multiplies suspicions among wider public, government and business, leading to aggravation of existing and appearance of artificial contradictions…

As initiators of this campaign, we understand that today there isn’t simple and universal formula for building mutually trusting society in Ukraine. We are confident that rebuilding trust is a long, laborious and hard work. This work has been done by many countries, including India and United Kingdom. It’s time for Ukraine to make this choice and walk along the path of trust-building. This is the very reason the idea of such campaign appeared.

Reference: Rajmohan Gandhi – grandson of Mohandas Karamchand “Mahatma” Gandhi, one of the leaders and ideologists of independence movement in India, whose philosophy of non-violence has widely influenced development of national and global movements for non-violent reforms. Continuing the work of Mahatma, professor, writer and former MP of India, for more than 50 years now, participates in initiatives aimed at building trust, peace, democracy and those fighting corruption and injustice. He was serving as the President of the International organisation “Initiatives of Change”.

Campaign organiser: Club of Young Leaders initiative in partnership with International organisation “Foundations for Freedom”.
