"Indestructible Ukraine" and "Opti Taxi": Let's help our children in Poland!
The last 6 months have become the most difficult in the modern history of Ukraine. During this time, tens of millions of Ukrainians have faced problems that have forever changed our daily lives and worldview.
But these trials made us not only stronger, but also sensitive, taught us to unite in order to survive and organize a new life for ourselves and others. Therefore, at the very beginning of the war, the charitable foundation "Indestructible Ukraine" was created.
"The first Ukrainian school in Poland": history, mission and goals of a large-scale project
The Indestructible Ukraine Foundation and the First Ukrainian School in Poland project were established in March 2022. The fund was founded by Victoria Gnap, a Ukrainian entrepreneur and philanthropist.
The project was born out of the urgent need to educate children evacuated from Ukraine who, fleeing the war, found refuge in Poland. More than 800,000 people have left for Poland since the start of the war, according to UNICEF. Ukrainian children. At the end of the spring semester, that is, until the end of May this year, about 190,000 students were studying in Polish schools. Children. Unfortunately, out of 200,000 children, there is no way to go back to school or even use the Internet - hundreds of their schools have been completely destroyed, while others are under occupation, war zones or rocket fire.
The main goal of the project is to provide Ukrainian children with continuous offline learning in accordance with the Ukrainian program, which reduces the stress level of parents and children and gives them the opportunity to return to normal life, secure a future and receive high quality education.
Thus, in August 2022, the First Ukrainian School received its own license from the Ministry of Education of Ukraine to conduct educational activities, which guarantees students and graduates confirmation of their diplomas in the country and abroad.
At the moment, three Ukrainian schools have been opened in Warsaw, Wroclaw and Krakow, which provide children with all the necessary educational materials free of charge. Educational centers of the foundation have Ukrainian teaching staff of teachers and directors. Additionally, Polish language training and psychological rehabilitation (if necessary) are provided.
In addition to the educational program, the "First Ukrainian School in Poland" has an entertainment program. Creative and sports competitions, dance and film screenings, concerts and master classes, trips to other cities and museums, flash mobs in support of Ukraine and thanks to friendly Poland are often held here. Interest clubs operate on a permanent basis: taekwondo, choreography, robotics, children's diplomacy, an English language club and others.
Helping Ukrainian children: what can you do?
Millions of Ukrainians in Poland are forced to solve a whole range of issues -
from material to psychological problems. The activities and development strategy of the Enduring Ukraine and First Ukrainian School foundations help to solve problems in a comprehensive manner.
The main problem is the language barrier and the issue of adaptation. Yes, Ukraine and Poland have different education systems. Our children have to return to the classrooms of the Polish education system and lose a year, which is not conducive to their mental well-being and academic performance.
But it is even more difficult to solve material issues. For Ukrainian families in Poland, every penny is important now. Some of them still do not have a permanent income, in addition, new and significant expenses have appeared: rent, new clothes (many remained in winter clothes), utility bills and food at European prices.
In all institutions of the "First Ukrainian School" the expenses of parents for children are partially covered. Everyone gets free food and drinks, stationery and backpacks. In addition, training boards were prepared for the new academic year.
The project is partially funded by the UNICEF Children's Fund and Save the Children, but the funds are not enough to educate Ukrainian children and help their parents.
“Only according to official information in Poland there are more than 800 thousand of them. Ukrainian preschoolers and schoolchildren. We have received over 7,000 applications for admission, but at the moment we can only accept 1300-1500 children... Willingly! There are not enough funds to support so many students. For example, we need funds for rehabilitation programs for children who left the zones of war and occupation,” said the president of the foundation, Victoria Gnap.
Now, in order to provide a quality education to Ukrainian children in Poland, the Indestructible Ukraine Foundation needs material and informational support.
Each of your hryvnia, dollar, euro or zloty will go to:
- purchase of school and office furniture;
- equipping classes with educational equipment;
- providing children with stationery and other school supplies;
- salaries of teachers and other staff;
- organization of sports and cultural events;
- adaptation and rehabilitation programs for children affected by hostilities;
- rental of premises for schools;
- and much more.
Make your contribution to the future of Ukrainian children. Together we can not only survive and survive these dramatic events, but also start building a better future by investing in it now!
