About us


The Reanimation Package of Reforms is the largest coalition of leading Ukrainian non-governmental organizations which have pooled their efforts to facilitate and implement reforms in Ukraine. The RPR functions as a coordination center for 72 non-governmental organizations and 23 expert groups which develop, promote, and control implementation of the reforms. The number of coalition members is constantly growing. Strategic tasks of the RPR: to turn civil society experts into the subjects of policy-making; to consolidate and coordinate public efforts; to guarantee the quality of reform-related proposals; to advocate adoption and implementation of the developed reforms; to communicate changes to the Ukrainian society and the international community.

Financial assistance


We are working to make Ukraine a state: with fair justice and economic and political competition; without opportunities for corruption and abuse of power; where every citizen knows their rights and can exercise them; where the authorities, the political parties, the media, and the non-governmental organizations are effective and accountable to the public.
