Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale offensive, thousands of Ukrainian civilians died, tens of thousands were wounded, and millions were forced to flee the war. Children became one of the main victims of the war.
25% of schools and 33% of kindergartens lack the necessary protective structures.
This year, millions of Ukrainian students will go to school.
Having a shelter in school is not enough. It needs to be safe and high quality. There should be good conditions for children and for conducting offline lessons. In many cases, we rely on the support of our friends and partners abroad.
Despite all the horrors of the war, children must continue studying in their native schools. Education is an investment in our future and we must give the future to the next generations.
Our goal is to provide 300 Ukrainian schools with safe and high-quality shelter.
In total, we need to raise $5 million.
With the endorsement and support of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, we are announcing a fundraiser to equip modern and safe shelters for Ukrainian schools. Among the applicants, we will select 300 winners who most urgently need the help of philanthropists.
Transparency and accountability are the key principles of our work in the implementation of this project. All project costs will undergo a thorough external audit.
What can be bought:
A shelter is not only a place, but also a significant amount of equipment, in particular:
Donors contribute. KSE Foundation guarantees that these funds will be used effectively and legally. After the implementation of the project, each donor receives a report on the implementation of his donation.
