For over 50 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 educational institutions across Australia by providing an annual funding program.

For many years Dnister has supported Ukrainian schools throughout Australia and now has extended this support to Ukrainian Playgroups.

Playgroup participants will be eligible to receive $25 into their Dnister accounts, for the promotion of their learning.
