"A Country to Live in" foundation 
created to help Belarusian political prisoners and work to build a democratic society and state
Our Mission Statement:

In 2020, the people of Belarus had chosen in favor of democracy and genuine democracy, rejecting lies and dictatorship. Repression was the answer for all of us.

Hundreds of thousands of Belarusians have left the country today. Tens of thousands have gone through torture and humiliation in detention centers. More than a thousand are imprisoned for political reasons. More than a dozen people died due to the actions of the security forces.

Today, our Foundation is at the forefront of the fight against dictatorship and assists Belarusian political prisoners.

The mission of "A Country to Live in" foundation is to ensure that our work eventually becomes irrelevant. As a result, all political prisoners became free, people who left because of repressions could return home, and a democratic regime was established in Belarus.

But as long as there are political prisoners in Belarus. For example, Sergei Tikhanovsky, the initiator of the creation of our Foundation who was sentenced to 18 years in prison, is behind bars; we cannot leave our activities.
