True hope responds to the real world, to real life; it is an active effort.
- Walter Anderson
Education is a top priority of UAC Ukraine. Institutionalized children are often left without stimulation in a bleak and hopeless trap. The UAC Orphaned Teen Scholarship Program is our most ambitious effort to allow orphaned children a chance at higher education.
UAC employs teachers and tutors in math, Ukrainian, English and science. UAC staff teaches music and basic reading and writing skills to many of our special needs children. Local church members offer bible study to children of all ages, and our UAC staff and volunteers orchestrate ongoing arts and crafts projects and sports activities to promote the children’s emotional and physical well being. We also provide students of all ages with learning materials and school supplies.
