While participating in the Community Connections exchange program in 1998, Svitlana Zakrevska's many meetings with American women's organizations inspired her to become more involved in women's issues upon her return to Ukraine. Other women joined her, and Alliance was registered as a non-governmental organization (NGO) in August of 1998 in Donetsk, Ukraine. Informational Consulting Center for youth non-profit organizations has started its activity on the base of Alliance since the 12th of July. Here youth organizations can get informational and consulting services in writing of projects and specialties of taxation, legislation, and accounting, etc. From August 15 till November 31 1999 Alliance provided the educational elections project by support of Canadian Embassy in Ukraine and Freedom House.
