The construction of a new preschool institution “Zernyatko” for one hundred and ten places continues at the centre of the Novoukrayinska amalgamated hromada (AH) in the Kirovohrad Oblast. AH head Oleksandr Korinnyi is convinced that opening of the kindergarten will almost completely solve the issue of lack of places in local children’s educational institutions.
“This is a project that has been waiting for its implementation for more than ten years,” says Oleksandr Korinnyi. According to the head, when his team came to power in Novoukrayinka in 2011, nobody helped to improve the state of “Zernyatko”, yet a lot of things had to be done. Therefore, at first it was planned to perform a minimal list of repairs that would allow children and adults to feel comfortable and safe in the kindergarten.
Prior to the decentralisation reform, local authorities in Novoukrayinka could not count on receiving funds for a fence, playground or warm floor. Though after last year’s visit to Novoukrayinka of Serhiy Kuzmenko, head of the Kirovohrad Oblast State Administration, the situation has changed.
“This year, UAH 108.5 million are planned to be spent on financing of the SFRD projects in the Kirovograd Oblast, and the total amount of funds allocated from the state budget for social, infrastructure and other projects in the regions is six billion,” commented Denys Abramov, regional development adviser of the Kirovohrad Local Government Development Centre, established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and MinRegion of Ukraine.
