Public and political activist. Member of the Lviv Regional Council. In the more than three-decade history of Ukraine’s restoration of independence, she is the first woman to head the Lviv Regional Council. Prior to her chairmanship of the regional council, she worked as the deputy head of the Lviv Regional State Administration, headed the Zaliznychna District Administration of Lviv and held other senior positions in local government. She is a representative of the European Solidarity party in the Lviv Regional Council. She has strong leadership and management skills that enable her to be effective in any position.
Iryna Hrymak is an expert on community development, local government support and the potential of the Lviv region.
Successful communities are the basis for the development of the region and the country, as well as an opportunity for quality of life and self-realisation for each of its residents.
The Lvivshchyna Foundation develops and helps to implement comprehensive programmes and projects to support community development. Alongside this, we support the implementation of specific small projects that qualitatively improve people’s living standards, promote the development of cities, villages and towns, and improve the investment climate of communities.
Equally important for us is the development of local governments and effective community management, deputy work, protection of community interests in the Lviv Regional Council, effective implementation of deputy powers and ideas for the development of local government and the potential of the Lviv region.

Helping defenders of Ukraine
We are Ukrainians. And today, when the occupier is trampling on our land, we want Ukraine’s victory to be swift and final! The basis of this victory is our indomitable spirit and our defenders. We are working to support them and will use all our knowledge, skills, efforts and experience to do so.
The Lvivshchyna Foundation works to provide our military in the combat zone with the necessary equipment, communications, medical equipment, hygiene products, food, etc.
An important element of our assistance is providing our military with drones.
We provide legal advice and psychological assistance to military personnel returning from the combat zone to help them re-establish themselves in civilian life.
We also support the families of our defenders and our Heroes to help them find support and hope for the future.

People who need care, help and support live next to us all the time, especially in wartime. Our task is to take care of them and create the conditions for them to feel needed by their country and the people around them, to grow up and live as worthy Ukrainians. First and foremost, these are orphans, children and adults with disabilities, and elderly people who cannot take care of themselves.
Lviv region has a number of specialised institutions, geriatric centres, and orphanages that need assistance in organising leisure activities, adapting people to their living conditions, and supporting social entrepreneurship.
The Lvivshchyna Foundation provides these institutions with a wide range of assistance – technical, psychological, and social. After all, these are our people, and we will do everything to ensure that the assistance is timely and effective.

Environment and resort potential
Lviv region is a picturesque land with a fascinating nature. It is a pearl of Ukraine, home to cultural, historical, archaeological, urban planning and architecture, palace and park art, as well as nature reserves and unique museums.
The natural resource, historical and cultural potential, combined with a favourable geographical location and the right solutions in the field of environmental protection, recreation and tourism, is one of the priorities for the region’s development and the basis for the functioning of the health resort treatment, tourism and recreation system, which is aimed at both Ukrainians and foreign tourists.
This potential can be effectively realised by successfully establishing cooperation between entrepreneurs, local authorities and the public on the basis of an agreed strategic development plan and comprehensive promotion.
The Lviv Region Foundation supports eco-initiatives and, together with partners, implements important tourism and recreational projects.

Project "Western Ukrainian Eco-Forum"
Lviv region is an attractive area for doing business. This is based on the high natural and recreational potential, the geographical location of the region as a border area, a developed tourism industry with a large number of hotels and tourist routes, hardworking people and significant resource potential. Therefore, attracting international and domestic investment in the region’s communities should become the basis for their successful development and prosperity in the future.
We are working to create an international platform in Lviv to increase investment opportunities in Lviv region and the western region of Ukraine, and to promote investment-attractive territories.
The Lviv Region Fund participates in international conferences and seminars, works individually with Ukrainian and foreign investors, and holds image and economic forums to ensure effective management of investment resources.
