Ivankivska AH: hromada focused on well-being and comfort for its people

This hromada is constantly developing in several directions at once: they are working on opening an ASC, participation in the "Hromada Police Officer" project, creating apartments for ATO soldiers and orphans in the former kindergarten. The features and uniqueness of the Ivankivska AH were seen firsthand by the participants of a press tour organised by the Cherkasy Local Government Development Centre of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme.

According to hromada head Lesia Polishchuk, the Ivankivska AH is about one and a half years old: it was formed from 4 villages (Ivanky, Tymoshivka, Berezivka, Krachkivka), and united more than 4170 residents of the Mankivka Rayon. Today, the hromada’s own revenue is more than UAH 15 million. Last year, they performed a budget of UAH 32 million, taking into account all received subventions. This hromada knows how to manage things properly: there are as many as 11 ponds on AH territory. The hromada audited them, issued water passports and auctioned the reservoirs for which the lease ended. As a result, the pond that used bring UA 1400 a year now brings the hromada UAH 50000!

On the basis of the former kindergarten premises (where the culture and leisure centre is already open), the apartments for ATO soldiers and orphans will be created. As far as leisure is concerned: with the consent of the people, a park with a playground was set up in the centre of the Ivanky village on the place of a former pop-up market. Now it’s a place for local celebrations, where the hromada’s own brass band often plays. It is in Ivanky that one of the tourist attractions of the region is located: the unique Oleksandria Park, which the AH wants to include in its tourist routes.

By the end of the year, an ASC and police officer should appear in the Ivankivska AH. They have already set up a utility company for which they purchased a tractor with necessary utensils for clearing the sidewalks, mowing the grass, clearing snow and sprinkling the sidewalks in winter.

Not every city has a school like Ivanky does. In addition to the interactive whiteboards and linguistic classrooms that can be seen in most AH schools today, they also create unique panels and paintings that transform monochromatic school walls into the streets of a fabulous country. Their authors are both the director and her pupils.

The hromada used to provide the hromada with free milk and fruit, and then decided to bake buns for them – a special baking equipment was purchased for the school. Equally unique is the fact that the AH launched a tradition to present school graduates with bank cards with an account in their name – as it was previously done in families for children.
