Tetiana van Waveren

Tetiana, a Ukrainian native, has studied mathematics and statistics at Kyiv National University. During her studies, she became active in civil society activities which gave her and two other colleagues the idea of turning their hobby into a profession. During 13 years of her professional career, she developed a small NGO into a well-known educational expertise center in Ukraine. She has worked on projects concerning regional development, European integration, fair elections and political education.
In April 2018, Tetiana joined Aflatoun International’s innovative, enthusiastic and professional team and its network of partners. She says the motto of the organisation, “turning dependence into independence,” inspires her everyday work. She finds it important to be involved in developing life skills and financial literacy for children and youth in such a diverse, challenging and bright region as Europe and Central Asia.
