How can philanthropy apply lessons from the war in Ukraine and support education systems in conflict zones across the globe?  Since the war began, over 2,600 schools have been damaged and some 5.3 million children face barriers preventing access to education (Source, UNICEF). Join this conversation to explore how funders can help Ukraine rebuild and support education during and after a crisis.


  • Anna Novosad, the Former Minister of Education and co-founder of SavEd will share strategies on rebuilding the destroyed schools,
  • Oksana Matiiash, CEO of Teach for Ukraine, will speak on ways to support rural and frontline schools,
  • Katerina Manoff, founder of US-based ENGin program, will share on the partnership between thousands of Americans and Ukrainians for online English conversations.
