Briefly: 5.3 million children and teachers of preschool and secondary school age in Ukraine have been adversely affected by the war, including 4.8 million children in need of immediate educational assistance.  The Government of Ukraine, the Ministry of Education and Science, local education authorities, and partners managed to preserve the education system. As a result, many more children were able to return to full-time education in the 2023/2024 school year. Online and blended learning was organized in areas where the security situation made offline learning impossible. However, significant educational needs remain that require the support of each of us and our international partners. 

How can partnerships with foreign donors support the education development program? What do international donors expect from cooperation with national partners? How can technology bridge the gap in education? It’s an open discussion on how to build effective partnerships and support the most vulnerable students in Ukraine in 2024. 

The events are held both offline and online. 

Journalists are requested to arrive 30 minutes prior to the event.
