Land O'Lakes-- International Development Division

Welcome to the Western Ukraine Initiative.

The Western Ukraine Initiative (WUK) is an economic development project conducted by the International Development Division of Land O'Lakes (LOL), the large American dairy cooperative. It is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and provides post-privatization support to agribusinesses in western and southwestern Ukraine.

At this website, you will be able to learn more about the work we do, our plans for the future, and how you can participate. We present this information because we're proud of the work we do and want people to know about it. Too often, it seems, discussions of foreign development work center on the difficulties, and while those difficulties do exist, they're actually the reason we're here, and should not overshadow the progress being made.

After you have had the chance to look through the material, feel free to contact us through the link below. We look forward to hearing from you.
