UWC’s IECC calls for global Ukrainian school registry, launches survey

The UWC International Educational Coordinating Council (IECC) is conducting a survey to create a single registry of verified Ukrainian educational institutions in the Diaspora. The survey was announced by Lyuba Lyubchyk, IECC’s newly-appointed chairperson.

“Dear Educators in the Diaspora! One of the Ukrainian World Congress’s priorities is the support, development, and encouragement of Ukrainian education worldwide, as well as expanding the network of Ukrainian schools abroad. The UWC IECC remains a reliable and consistent partner in advocating for the interests and needs of Ukrainian education globally.”

“We invite you, colleagues, to fill out this Google form to create a single and verified registry of Ukrainian educational centers abroad (pre-schools, schools, extracurricular activities such as clubs, cultural-educational centers, higher-education institutions) for better communication and information about educational projects and initiatives of UWC IECC,” Lyubchyk wrote.

Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, there has been a significant increase in enrolment in Ukrainian Saturday and Sunday schools, especially in European countries, Lyubchyk explained. The IECC asks the administrators and teachers of these newly established educational centers to participate in the survey, as UWC IECC will soon launch an educational project specifically for these educational institutions.

“In this extremely challenging time for Ukraine, let’s come together, unite, and act collectively! Our sincerest thanks, dear educators, for your sacrifices and inspired work for Ukraine! I am proud of each and every one of you: you hold the Ukrainian educational front steadfastly and firmly in the countries where you reside, despite the current challenges! Ukrainian schools abroad are one of the crucial factors to preserving Ukrainian identity,” Lyubchyk emphasized.
