Vilni is a social enterprise where IDP women make hand-knitted products


The Vilni project was launched at the beginning of the war as a response to the growing number of unemployed IDP and refugee women who found themselves in a difficult financial situation and in need of psychological support.

The product of the project is hand-knitted products: socks and scarves. They are made by those women who lost their jobs because of the war or needed a new field of employment. Each product contains a QR code and tells the story of the craftswoman, an IDP woman, or a refugee who created it.

The social component of the project is that women are provided with jobs here, and a women's community is developed, which is a comfortable space for communication and mutual assistance. In particular, Vilni exports finished products as Ukrainian craft products.
