"taking a break to recharge is crucial"
Why we do this ?

Before the war, Tepla Gora was a place for holistic retreats and recovery, for learning and co-creating. The GEN Ukraine team supported and developed sustainable communities in Ukraine. During the war, we continue to fulfill our mission: to create an environment for recovery and support for those who need it most.

Although faith and hope give us strength to resist, this difficult time also brings anxiety, exhaustion and trauma. For people living in survival mode and under high stress, taking a break to recharge is crucial. Besides helping the affected people feel grounded again and balancing their emotional state, a restful pause will strengthen their hope and faith and enable them to go on and/to help others.

The initiative is realised by the Tepla Gora Foundation (NGO) with the support of donors and the program partner, GEN Ukraine
