Urgent Appeal

Help Bring Hope and Healing to Children Affected by War in Ukraine

Dear Sir/Madam,

We hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. We are writing to you today to appeal for your support in our mission to bring positive change to the lives of children affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine.

As the organizer and mentor of the special group of children in Kharkiv city, Natalia Goenko has witnessed firsthand the devastating impact of the war on the children of Ukraine. The destruction of their childhood, the constant stress, and the loss of hope have left them in desperate need of healing and support.

Working with and for children with special needs (vision and hearing problems), in times of peace her organization – ‘Flower of Hope’ was dedicated to organizing international festivals and improving children’s health.  ‘We strongly believe that these children should be admired rather than pitied’, and we have been fortunate to receive funding from the parents of our participants for our projects.

However, with the war causing economic difficulty and displacing families, we find ourselves facing significant challenges. Most our children are now in Kharkiv, where they endure daily stress from sirens, shelling, and the overall tension of living in a war zone. Our duty is to give them a glimmer of hope and give them a break from these hardships.

We are reaching out to individuals who, like you, have a deep desire to make a positive impact on the world. We propose the opportunity to send small groups of 10-15 children from Kharkov to a children’s international center on the beautiful Adriatic coast of Croatia. We have a preliminary arrangement, and we are counting on a reduced all-inclusive price for our children.

In gratitude for your support, we will provide our sponsors with photo and video materials documenting this transformative experience. You will witness firsthand the profound impact of your contribution on the lives of these children.

As we aim to establish a Socio-Cultural Center in Kharkiv, one of our key projects includes organizing ongoing recreational activities for children at the seaside. By supporting our crowdfunding campaign, you automatically become a sponsor of our entire Initiative.

We kindly request your consideration and support for this urgent cause. Together, we can create a ripple effect of hope and healing in the lives of these children. Your generosity will not only change their lives but also stand as a testament to the power of unity, compassion, and resilience.

Please join us in bringing hope. Together, we can make a difference.

Thank you for your time and consideration. We eagerly await your positive response, and we look forward to embarking on this meaningful journey.

We kindly ask you to forward this request to those who could join us and help.

With deepest respect and unwavering hope,

Choreography Hall Restoration

Choreography for children with special needs

Choreography holds immense importance for children with special needs, particularly those with vision and hearing impairments. Through the art of dance, these children are given a unique platform to express themselves, communicate, and experience the joy of movement.

However, the recent shelling in Kharkiv, Ukraine has taken a toll on a cherished choreography class, leaving it in dire need of restoration. Restoring this class is not just about rebuilding walls and floors; it’s about rebuilding hope, confidence, and a sense of belonging for these children.

This is choreography class before war

Dance serves as a powerful therapeutic tool, allowing to improve motor skills, enhance coordination, and cultivate self-expression. It fosters a safe and inclusive environment where children can explore their creativity, embrace their unique abilities, and build meaningful connections with others.

Your contribution will enable them to continue their journey of personal growth, self-discovery, and artistic exploration. Together, we can ensure that the healing power of dance remains accessible to all, helping these remarkable children overcome challenges, discover their potential, and experience the transformative joy of dance.

Beautiful dancing of beautiful kids.

Eco-center “Parostok”

"If your plan is for one year, plant rice. If your plan is for ten years, plant trees. If your plan is for a hundred years, educate your children." (Confucius) 
If your plan is designed for eternity, get to know yourself and share your knowledge with others. (Rost)

"This planet has a problem, which is this: most of the people living on it are unhappy for pretty much all of the time” as Douglas Adams stated in his novel "Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

"The real problem in today's world is not in the political or economic spheres: in essence, the main problem is moral. "  -  Rabbi Elie Munk “The Call of the Torah”

The material world and technological progress cannot correct this state of affairs. It can neither make a person happier nor solve basic issues in the economic, political and social spheres. Consequently, the degradation of civilization continues.

We need to create a reliable and complete solution - CTW-Ecosystem. The goal is to create a sustainable environment for effective socio-cultural development of a person, as well as financial support for all participants - teachers, volunteers, students, children and their parents, everyone who is interested in it and who decided to participate.

"Why Crowdfunding?"

Conventional approaches often yield predictable outcomes.

When our goal is to create a better world, who better to take action than us?  And the answer is clear: it’s us—every individual who cares, including you and me, and all those who share our vision.

This is why we advocate for crowdfunding: the collective participation of numerous individuals—hence, ‘crowdfunding.’

Our unique approach entails rewarding all participants for their involvement.

"Why Ukraine?"

  • Our conceptual approach: to effect meaningful change in the global system, we prioritize rectifying its weakest components. This begins with aiding those who require these changes most urgently.
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link
  • Ukraine stands in need of our collective assistance and collaborative endeavors to reinstate normalcy. Our primary focus encompasses teachers, students, children with special needs, volunteers dedicated to working with children, and military personnel transitioning back to civilian life.
  • Our objective is to establish an appealing and sustainable model, scalable to other regions across the globe.

Plan of Actions

After reaching the first financial target, we will execute the following plan:
  • Team Development and Expansion
  • Acquiring Legal Assistance
  • Board of Advisers Formation
  • Inviting Strategic Investors/Partners
  • Building the Web Portal (ctw-ecosystem.org - prototype)
  • Growing Community - attracting members of our CTW-Society
  • Establish the proper organizational structure - CTW-Foundation
  • Preparing for global impact investment crowdfunding 

Donate. Invest. Support.

Dear Supporter,

Your unwavering support represents an investment in our collective future.
Your boundless generosity contributes to the greater good of the world and propels us toward a future where every child can thrive in a nurturing family and a supportive environment.

It is crucial for them to witness a world that embodies positivity and hope, and it is our shared responsibility to actualize this vision.
Together, we can make this world a better place for all.

Warm regards, CTW-Ecosystem team.

Teamwork is the Key to Success

One person can have an idea, but it takes a team to make it happen.
Right now, we're a group of passionate people from different countries, all aiming for the same thing: to make our world better. Even though we're far apart, our shared goal brings us together and helps us work as a team, no matter the challenges.

Everyone is open and follows strong ethical standards. We're excited about the next steps in our teamwork and eager to turn our plans into reality.
This Initiative Group in Kharkiv, Ukraine is ready to bring our collaborative plans to life:
With time being of the essence, we have launched our initiative known as CTW-Initiative.

Although our long-term plan is to establish the CTW-Foundation, we are currently running a crowdfunding campaign under ZEIR Systems Inc., the company founded by the initiator of this noble cause.
