The initiators of the organization note that its primary objective is to improve government efficiency and to increase awareness among the Ukrainian public of the importance of participation in the process by each and every member of the society.

According to Mrs. Nazarova, the organization is altogether a non-government one and is developed to consolidate the intellectual potentials to be further utilized in developing a systemic approach to identification of priorities as well as adoption of a unified strategy for tackling specific social challenges. "He who with his feet cuts through the path it follows, will succeed, adds the Partner with Asters. – Being fully aware of this, I believe that the organization initiators have laid a firm foundation for the subsequent development of mighty civic efforts. It is the civic rather than elective nature of the membership as well as the experience and reputation of Anatoly Grytsenko and other members of the organization that have drawn me in."
