WONDER Foundation
Our mission is to empower women, girls and their community through access to quality education so that they can exit poverty for good. We are working, with our women-led local partners, towards a future where women and girls are empowered to make informed life choices and lead the way in their own personal development.

WONDER Foundation has worked for the last 5 years to empower Ukrainian women and families in Poland. Now, we are building on that to meet the needs of the thousands of Ukrainians arriving in Poland daily, seeking safety.

What we are doing now:

Our Polish colleagues are already working with volunteers, including from the Ukrainian community, to provide:

• Essentials (food, bedding, clothes)
• Safe spaces for children and families to meet and play
• Support with housing
• Information, advice and guidance

What we need to do in the coming months:

Even if the war ends tomorrow, and we hope it does, Ukrainians in Poland will still need support. They are far from home, their homes, schools and roads destroyed. We will be supporting Ukrainian women and children for the coming weeks and months to come whilst the Ukrainian government requires fathers and brothers to remain in Ukraine.

We would love you to consider fundraising for us at UCL.

Time commitment

We're totally flexible around your availability.
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
We encourage all volunteers to abide by local measures in place. For activities on UCL campus you can speak with the Volunteering Service for this.


This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
