Kateryna was born in Ukraine and lived there
until 25 years old. Sadly, her hometown Donetsk
was destroyed in the war, so she took her son and
they travelled a bit around the world - overall she
visited 37 countries and lived in some of them.
Finally, she settled in lovely Portugal. She lives
in Figueira da Foz for 4 years now.
Katya has 13 years of experience in social entrepreneurship and nonformal
education areas. Currently, she runs a network of NGOs "Youth
Line" (she trained 3600 young people) and a small school for 50
orphans in Uganda called "Gifted English". In Portugal Katya created a
youth association “Youth Line Portugal”, which organises Erasmus+
educational projects for European youth.

place in Figueira da Foz.
Katya devotes some time to
communicate to the community
via social media, overall she
