Introducing three new winners of the “Talents for Ukraine” grant program! The jury selected them from among hundreds of applications – each winner received $5,000 to pursue their dreams from the KSE Foundation. This is the leader of the street football movement, animator and founder of the mentoring program for high school students.

Serhii Savenok is the leader of the street football movement and the owner of the freestyle football school. For 6 years he has been organizing street football tournaments, and also performs with his own show program in Ukraine and abroad. During this time, Serhii opened his own football freestyle school, where more than 500 students have already acquired sports skills. Our winner popularizes street sports, because, he says, not all children have the opportunity to visit sections and play in stadiums.

Leonid Tyvoniuk is a director, animator and organizer of the “Behind The Mirror” animation festival. Leonid created a studio for teaching and creating social animation for children and teenagers, and in the future plans to continue promoting Ukrainian stop-motion animation in international projects.
