About the project. The project is for Ukrainian children who were forced to flee abroad due to the russian full-scale invasion. It is designed to help maintain a connection with the homeland. “Stay with Ukraine” are “live” online lessons that last an hour. The Ukrainian studies component contains three blocks: Ukrainian language, literature, and history of Ukraine. Classes take place in two formats — weekday evenings and Saturdays, so as not to interfere with the main classes of children in local schools. Methodical professional teachers have developed balanced programs to assimilate the necessary material quickly.
On the one hand, the program preserves all the key topics for studying the subjects and, on the other hand, the amount of study hours is shorted. Four tests are planned during the academic year to monitor children’s educational progress and receive teacher feedback. They are not mandatory.
More than 1,500 children have joined the 2023-2024 school year. These are 80 groups. And a team of 54 teachers.
Goal. The project is designed to enable Ukrainian temporary relocated abroad students of grades 5-11 to keep in touch with Ukraine and the education system. Students will receive basic knowledge of the three subjects of the Ukrainian component, which are not possible to study abroad. The program aimed to simplify children’s return to learning in Ukrainian schools.
