Charity and Social Projects
LIGA GROUP includes the International Charitable Foundation "LET'S HELP!", founded by the Bondarenko family. The administrative expenses of the Charity Fund are fully funded by the founders, so 100 % of the funds raised are used for charity purposes.
Several special projects operate in order to introduce social protection for all categories of the population, to achieve a sustainable level of provision for the poor and vulnerable strata of the population, and to ensure equal rights and opportunities within the framework of the fund:"DECENT OLD AGE", "Small Volunteers", "Let's help sick people" and " Let's help orphans", and "WHITE BOX".
On the initiative of the LIGA GROUP and International Charity Fund "LET'S HELP!", the Hryshko Botanical Garden was equipped with an inclusive playground. Its main feature is that this platform is designed for both children with special needs and ordinary children. International Charity Fund “Let's help!” with the support of AROMA KAVA and Shevchenko district state administration in Kyiv reconstructed the playground in Chkalov Square in order to improve its inclusivity.

The funds collected from the sale of hand-made souvenirs, sweets, etc., are directed at the needs of the elderly according to the programs implemented by the LET'S HELP! International Charity Fund. LIGA:ZAKON constantly helps residents of the retirement home in Tarashcha. Tarashcha retirement home became the first home where all ironware was replaced with ceramic ware, all thanks to the efforts of the employees at LIGA:ZAKON.

In addition, beautiful cups, flasks, and bottles can be bought from large coffee shops, and all these proceeds go to charity.
It is especially important to mention much loved by the citizens and guests of the capital expositions at the Gryshko National Botanical Garden. Near the main entrance on the area of about two hectares lays the ever-flowering plant complex with charming trees: the Tree of Happiness, the Tree of Love, the Tree of Health and the Tree of Wealth. Next to each tree there is a magic wishing stone. All of this was possible thanks to patronage of Liga Group.

The bench has already become an attraction for newlyweds - a place where the hearts unite.

We have invested in resource-saving technologies, thus reducing the load on the outdated municipal power grid at the location of our offices by a third. We focus on reducing the consumption of electricity, heat, water, paper, and other material resources.
We try to replace all the stationery used in our offices with recycled materials. All our employees began to treat paper for printing more carefully and do not needlessly print out files. We have introduced a separate collection of garbage and used batteries. We have also transferred our entire fleet of vehicles to LNG, which has reduced the amount of harmful CO2 emissions, and have equipped a bicycle parking, so now our employees have the opportunity to be environmentally friendly by riding a bike or moped on their way to work.
