Join this roundtable discussion on how philanthropy can support the ongoing and widespread relief, recovery, and rebuilding efforts as a result of Russia's war on Ukraine.

How can philanthropy apply lessons from the war in Ukraine and support education systems during and after a crisis and 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). This conversation will shed light on the current state of education in Ukraine and the potential for strategic partnerships and innovative programs that address educational challenges brought on by Russia’s war.   


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

In partnership with Philanthropic Foundations Canada, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, and Community Foundations of Canada.
