Become a partner
We believe in partnerships that have a common goal. Zaborona is open for cooperation with other media, businesses, non-governmental organizations, civic initiatives and volunteer movements aimed at achieving positive changes and transformations in the society.
Zaborona may initiate a partnership or accept an invitation to join an existing initiative. It can be media, charitable or commercial partnership. For us at Zaborona, an ideal partnership is the one that creates a unique value, experience and results. If you have ideas and want to extend partnership to Zaborona, fill out our online form and we will contact you shortly.
But first, read about our partner selection criteria:
– Excellent reputation. We work only with companies and organizations that have excellent reputation and transparent organizational or business activities.
– Leaders in their field. We respect the success and innovations actively implemented by us in the media sphere, and we are ready to cooperate with companies and organizations from other fields that offer non-standard solutions and approaches to solving urgent problems.
– Grassroot initiatives & startups: change is impossible without new agents of change – activists, entrepreneurs and volunteers. We are enthusiastic about bold ideas and ready to consider partnerships with formal and informal movements, and with startups that not only have ambitious plans, but are already taking first steps to implement them.
Zaborona media does not cooperate with organizations or other structures with questionable origin of money. The same applies to government agencies and companies for the reason of maintaining objectivity, as Zaborona primarily monitors the activity of government agencies.
On Zaborona we often talk about people who change the rules of the game in the society. If you represent a public initiative, non-profit organization or a charity and want us to tell all about you, you should write to us. We will consider the possibility of publishing a story, although we cannot provide any guarantees to this end.
In addition, the information about your initiative may appear in a special Zaborona’s newsletter on changemakers and on a dedicated page on Facebook.
We support the initiatives aimed at tackling poverty, inequality, combating violence, protecting human rights and liberalizing the legislation, promoting sustainable development and protecting the environment. If you are doing something of the kind and you think your experience and special approach to the case needs recognition and publicizing, and you are prepared to share it with Zaborona’s audience, come and tell us briefly all about it by filling out this form. It is important that the information you want to share is articulated as clearly and expressly as you would do trying to convey it to a stranger.
We make no promise to get back to you and do not guarantee publishing anything on Zaborona, but we will definitely look into everything.
If you have more questions or interested in cooperation contact our chief operating officer, Olena Sadovnik, for more details.
