Initiative summary:

Manifest Mira NGO is one of the key pro-democracy groups in Odesa that engages local residents critically and serves as an important watchdog of local governance. From 2014 to today, the team has been active on a number of pressing local issues, ranging from preservation of cultural spaces to the protection of green areas against illegal construction. Today, the team works on the contested issue of de-institutionalisation (reform of children’s residential institutions) and, with EED support, oversees the implementation of the de-institutionalisation national strategy in the Odesa region, while also mobilising residents around the topic.
