For over 55 years, Dnister has understood the importance of nurturing the Ukrainian language and culture with our youth.

In doing so, the Co-operative continues to support Ukrainian schools across Australia by providing an annual funding program.

The funding is broken into two sections; commitment to schools, and commitment to students.


Dnisters commitment to Schools and Playgroups

Our ongoing commitment to schools over many years has not changed,
and has now been extended to Latvian Schools and Playgroups. Schools and Playgroups with an active Dnister membership are still eligible to receive an annual grant. Your school or playgroup will receive the total number of students x $25.00, to be used for the support of achieving its own objectives.
