Our projects

School-to-school support

Educational institutions suffered as a result of rocket attacks and continue to suffer from constant power and heating outages.

Our organization is in touch with most Montessori spaces in Ukraine and collects the individual needs of each of them. We are already helping schools with the purchase of generators and payment of household expenses. The report can be seen here.

If you want to join the support of schools – be sure to download the instructions and contact us here.

Psychological support for children, parents, and teachers

During the war, both children and adults are under permanent stress, which affects their ability to concentrate and be effective.

Our organization has created projects to support each group:

  • For children, we launched the project of evening readings, where three times a week teachers read selected stories in Ukrainian and English on our Facebook page.
  • For parents, we have created the Parents’ Chatter project. Once every two weeks parents can meet with a Montessori teacher and a psychologist.
  • For teachers, the Intervision project was created, where they can meet and discuss pedagogical challenges, coping strategies, etc.

Translation and publishing of Montessori books

Until now, no book by Maria Montessori has been available in the Ukrainian language.

So we have taken up the translation of the main works:

  • “The Montessori Method”
  • “The Secret of Childhood”
  • “The Absorbent Mind”
  • “Education and Peace”

Currently, two books are in the process of translation and two more are in the queue.

Support for internally displaced families in Shelter

Many families have lost their homes and are forced to stay in shelters.

Under such conditions, it is difficult for people to meet their basic needs. Our organization provides humanitarian aid and educational support to them.

If you want to join the support of the shelters – please mark “Shelter” when you specify the purpose of the donation.

Creating educational courses for parents and teachers

We have conducted a sociological study and according to its data, there is a clear need for educational opportunities for parents and teachers.

Currently, our organization is in the process of experimenting with training formats.

We already conducted a Montessori course for 500 educators in cooperation with the AMI trainer Maria Roth.

We are creating a course for parents on Montessori parenting and for teachers on Peace education in collaboration with international partners.

If you have other suggestions for cooperation or any questions – please, contact us
