Until February 2022, the Foundation’s team consisted of twenty people who were helping refugees from more than forty countries, including Afghanistan, Sudan, Syria, and others, to settle their lives in Ukraine.

On February 24, 2022, everything changed: for Ukrainians, for refugees, for Rokada. At the beginning of the full-scale invasion, leveraging 20 years of experience and the support of international organizations, they established a network of regional offices in 10 regions of the country. Today, over 400 experts provide daily assistance to the affected population and internally displaced persons.

We believe in everyone

whom we help

Humanity is a large family, and every person is a member of this family. Support from loved ones always inspires and does not allow us to give up even in the most challenging trials. When times are tough and life is on pause, we will be by your side.

We take pride in trust

Accountability, reliability, predictability – these are the qualities valued and respected by our beneficiaries and international partners, whose support enables us to carry out our activities. Together, we achieve our set goals, as we have one purpose – to protect the rights and well-being of those who turn to us.

We value our team

Professionalism and expertise are an unshakable tradition that strengthens the Rokada family. In a community of proactive individuals united by common values, everyone realizes their potential and feels the support. We aspire to be even better, so we continuously learn and improve our professional level.
