Distance education for 100,000 Ukrainian children: international foundations support "Optima" School

The largest distance school in Ukraine "Optima" has implemented a large-scale humanitarian project - free education for 100,000 Ukrainian students. It was possible due to an international partnership with the Robert Bosch Stiftung, SAP Solidarity Fund, SAP Stiftungsfonds, DFB Stiftung Egidius Braun, and Alliance4Ukraine, which funded “Optima” until the end of the Ukrainian school year.

According to UNICEF, as of April, two-thirds of Ukrainian children are refugees. Supporting Ukrainian school-age children has been one of the biggest challenges since the beginning of the war. “Optima” Distance School provides unprecedented assistance in this emergency: since the beginning of hostilities and the growing wave of migration, free access to educational materials has been opened here for all schoolchildren in Ukraine. Students in all classes have full access to school lessons, regardless of the location and time of the task fulfilment.

The charity package "With Optimism in the Heart" brought together more than 100,000 Ukrainian children. To ensure unhindered access to education for everyone who needs it, “Optima” has found an opportunity to increase the technical capacity of the training platform to 500,000 unique users.

The international foundations DFB Stiftung Egidius Braun, Robert Bosch Stiftung, SAP Solidarity Fund, SAP Stiftungsfonds, and the NGO Alliance4Ukraine have joined forces and supported the “Optima” School with a grant of € 500,000. It allowed Ukrainian students, including graduating classes, to complete the school year without loss of education and obtain relevant documents on education.

“Optima” expresses its sincere gratitude to the partners. Such timely support, social responsibility, indifference, and desire to help became an inspiration for the school staff and encouraged new educational victories!
