In the conditions of air attacks on civilian infrastructure and power outages, children in Ukraine did not have the opportunity to receive quality and continuous education in regular schools. The worst situation with education in Ukraine was in regions close to the active conflict zone and in occupied territories. Children evacuated abroad who wanted to continue their education in the Ukrainian program alongside their local schooling had no such opportunity.
Therefore, the Charitable Fund "Children’s Future" and the "Optima" school initiated a charitable scholarship program for quality distance education for children who were most affected by Russian aggression.
Categories of children covered by the program included:
• children evacuated from areas of active hostilities;
• children living in occupied or liberated territories;
• children of military personnel;
• children whose parents died during the war;
• children who suffered from post-traumatic consequences and health issues due to the war.
Over 7,000 requests and 3,772 applications with supporting documents were received. Scholarships were provided to 846 students in grades 1-11.
A charitable scholarship program for children with special educational needs in the 2023/2024 academic year within the scholarship program for vulnerable children.
Children whose parents died in the war receive full compensation for the educational services of the “Optima” distance school. Each child is a unique story, and we care deeply about their well-being.
