Laptops for Ukrainian orphans
Since the start of the war, two-thirds of Ukrainian children have been displaced from their homes and have had their education in Ukraine disrupted. More than 2,000 schools have been damaged or razed and attacks on centers of learning continue. Education is often neglected during the war and perceived as a less immediate concern. Yet, for children in war-torn regions, the school provides a sense of normalcy, safety, and routine and is critical for their mental, social, and emotional well-being.
In mid-March, over 15,000 schools resumed education in Ukraine, mainly through remote learning or in-person hybrid options. High-quality internet connectivity is still available in most parts of the country. The Ministry of Education and Service created a national e-platform for distance and blended learning that provides free access to high-quality educational content, digital textbooks, and other learning resources. Teachers continue to instruct, even from bomb shelters and remote locations.
Through these efforts, millions of Ukrainian children in the country and abroad have been able to continue their education. However, online learning has not been possible for some of Ukraine’s most vulnerable children, those in foster families. Most orphans do not have the smartphones, tablets, or laptops essential for continuing their education during a war.
Our goal is to purchase 600 used devices for 600 Ukrainian children under foster care who are currently in Ukraine and are already members of Sunflower Academy and lack a device.
The price for one device is $150. The total amount needed is $150 * 600 = $90,000
100% of the funds go directly to the families, and the Fund operational costs are sponsored by Umbrex company.
