A total of 500 Ukrainian children were able to return to school thanks to the ‘Inspiration Café’ project launched in Uzhhorod, western Ukraine, with the financial support of the EU Delegation to Ukraine.
The Inspiration Café was launched by the team of the Educator Lyceum from Kyiv, as an education hub in Uzhgorod where children between 6 and 17 from Popasna, Rubizhne, Kharkiv, Mykolaiv and Kramatorsk can continue their school learning.
“Daily bombardment and shelling during the months of the full-scale Russian invasion has damaged more than 1,600 educational institutions, completely razing 102 of them to the ground,” says the EU Delegation to Ukraine. “Ukrainian schoolchildren are studying remotely, with more than 86,000 IDP children already joining the process in their temporary locations. However, this represents only a fraction of those in need of continuing education, psychological counselling, socialisation and integration into local communities.”
