Back in the spring, at the height of the evacuation, our team realized that one of the pressing issues for people who left Ukraine to escape the war was the education of their children. Even during the war, children have to learn and develop. We gathered a team of teachers who helped children finish the school year.
In the summer, health and developing programs and excursions were organized for children. All this time, we were looking for and then preparing a building for the Center for Non-formal Education, which would be able to accept even more Ukrainian children for education.
On September 26, 2022, we officially opened our Center for Non-Formal Education "International Ukrainian School "UNION". Currently, 206 children who were forced to leave Ukraine due to the armed aggression of the Russian Federation study in our center.
Thanks to the work of a team of real professionals, children have the opportunity not only to get an education of all standards and programs approved by the Ministry of Education of Ukraine, but also to develop harmoniously in a comfortable, safe and friendly environment.
The Center for Non-Formal Education "International Ukrainian School "UNION" is funded by Zimin Foundation.
