Annual Reports of NGO “Montessori UA” (2022)

This is the public report of the NGO Montessori UA.

This year our organization was founded (4th of June 2022) and made significant steps for the development of Montessori education in Ukraine. We thank every volunteer, subscriber, and beneficiary for their cooperation and trust! All these results are possible only thanks to you!

We have calculated the approximate number of young and adult Ukrainians who have been affected by our activities, and it is more than 10,000 Ukrainians!


Conducted a sociological survey for 250 respondents and identified the need for Ukrainian translation of Montessori literature, as well as the need to increase the availability of Montessori education and the number of educators.


We signed a contract for the translation of 3 books by Maria Montessori:

  • “Education and Peace”,
  • “The Absorbent Mind”,
  • “The Secret of Childhood”.

The first of them will be submitted for publication in the first quarter of 2023. We also translated more than 10 articles by international experts.

Online projects

  • We have created a website where we publish articles from international experts and our own articles in the Library section.

It reveals the opinions of international colleagues on peace and the future of the world in the context of the war in Ukraine. It also demonstrates the terrible losses that the war has brought. The film covered more than 2500 views.
  • Work with Wikipedia. Supplemented Ukrainian-language articles about Maria Montessori and Montessori pedagogy by adding information from the English and Italian versions. At the moment, the Ukrainian Wikipedia page about Maria Montessori is the largest and most complete among all languages.
