Веселих Свят!

We are very grateful for all your support through the past year and look forward to sharing many more events with you in 2022!

The holidays are a time to reflect – 2021 was a busy year as:

> Children in Durban started to learn Ukrainian language and art at the new branch of the Ukrainian school in South Africa

> Ukrainians and South Africans had planted pomegranate trees contributing to the inspiring Greening of the Planet initiative – to plant 1 000 000 trees in 100 countries

> Adults got an opportunity to learn Ukrainian at the online language classes “Rodosliv”

> Ukrainians in SA celebrated the 30th anniversary of Ukraine’s Independence

> We learned together about the connections between Eastern European communities in South Africa

> We dreamed big and for first time ever UAZA put together the contemporary dance performance “The Forest” that celebrated the 150th anniversary of Ukrainian poet Lesya Ukrainka

> The new UAZA Executive Committee at the 5th  General meeting (online) was elected by members from 8 cities in SA approved a new mission

> The Women’s Club “Beregynya” was established to celebrate our heritage and traditions

> At the 5th Ukrainian Festival we discovered multiple talents, spoke about art, diplomacy, economics, history and much more

> Two memorial benches were unveiled in Cape Town and Riversdale honouring the victims of Holodomor

> We counted over 6000 of Ukrainians in South Africa while doing research on “Ukrainians in South Africa: Society, Identity and Future” in partnership with MIOK
