This week has been extremely productive!
We organized a zoom conversation with JuliaVolkman, President of Maitri Learning; Guest Lecturer at Harvard University! More than 30 parents living in Ukraine in the midst of war and those who were displaced due to the war were able to join online and ask their questions! You can watch a recording of that call here but I’ve also written down some of the ordinary and extraordinary questions that came up.

Some of the topics covered include:
- Difficulty learning
- Isolating as a coping mechanism
- Learning new languages
- Helping children learn to read
We met with Elizabeth Slade – the leader of public Montessori education in the US, adopted the experience, and learned important details on this difficult path. Our gratitude is infinite! Also, within the framework of the UN Educational Cluster, our representative attended a meeting of the Kyiv subcluster and discussed the possibilities of winterization of schools and shelters.
