The First Lady noted that currently 1,600 schools in Ukraine are either completely or partially destroyed.
First Lady Olena Zelenska told about the recovery plan schoolswhich destroyed or damaged the Russian occupiers as a result of a full-scale invasion.
That’s what she’s talking about told May 31 in an interview with Ukrainian media, which was broadcast on an information telethon
“I really want our children to return to school on September 1. How will this process work, how will we succeed, and how many schools will be able to earn. Because you know that currently 1,600 schools are either completely or partially destroyed and we will work in the summer to restore the buildings so that children can go to school in peace in those regions where it will be physically possible to do so for security reasons, “she said.
Olena Zelenska also stressed that her son wants to go to school, to his children, he wants to communicate.
“Currently, this is not very possible. Let’s hope that the summer will still allow us to see new opportunities for all children,” – summed up the first lady.
The First Lady also stressed that The Ministry of Education has an 11-point plan about returning children to school, and she is also working on that.
“Again, returning to my meetings and telephone conversations with the first ladies, I invited several of them to take part in the construction of new or rebuilding destroyed schools. For example, a French-Ukrainian school. They will take care of it after the war. That would be a good sign of our friendship, “she said.
UNICEF invited Olena Zelenska take part in the project “Back to school”. They are also working on rebuilding schools, they are now interested in one of the schools, and a project is already being developed.
“As well as the adaptation of children to return to school and psychological practices. It seems to me that now we can also support the normal return of our children to school, so as not to let them forget the Ukrainian language, literature and history. “Our partners abroad ask them to include them in their educational programs. Because many of our children are now integrated into schools in Poland, France and Germany, so that children receive lessons in Ukrainian language, literature and history,” she said.
In a conversation with Germany, Olena Zelenska suggested that Ukrainian teachers who are currently abroad also take part in the training as teachers.
“We also need to strengthen the work of many Ukrainian Saturday schools. In the summer, they could work more hours or days that our children, in addition to studying in foreign schools, studied those subjects that they do not currently study in schools,” said Zelenskaya.
We will remind, Elena Zelenskaya told how she told the children about the beginning of the war in Ukraine.
