Help for black people in post-soviet countries

#BlackLivesMatter! And matter all over the World!

We are a group of students from Africa, living now in different post-soviet countries: Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus and etc. Current racial situation and tolerance in these countries, unfortunately still wishes the best. We want to join the worldwide community and create our own organization for black people in different post-soviet countries, because #BlackLivesMatter all over the world!

We can not always rely on a support from our own countries, as most of them are not even represented here (no embassies, or councils). There are only few in nearby countries, but travelling there always requires funds, which most of us can not always afford. Help from legal representatives is not a deal as well. In most of the cases they refuse to work for us, or ask for a large compensation as we are foreigners.

The aim of an organization is to unite black people under official organization and provide various support to them if needed:



-          Legal Advice

-          Help with accommodation

-          Help with education

-          Help with residential permits

-          Help with work permits

-          Healthcare

-          Financial help

-          Other help on demand

Along with this, we want to create some sports and leisure activities, where locals can participate and get to know our cultures more: football tournaments, gastro events, music concerts and etc.

First step will be to setup a head office in one of the countries, for this purposes we decided to use Georgia, as expenses are lower than in other countries. Second step will be to setup representations in other countries.

We plan to launch a website, where black people can register and become members of our organization. Along with that social networks will be widely used to spread an information. All of our activities will be represented there, so people can always track and evaluate our efforts.

We do hope that international organizations will also join us and we can create a real power, so that our members can always rely on us.

We ask you for help, to make this World better for those, who must not struggle, because of their color, culture or religion. #TogetherWeStand #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForBlackPeople
