Schools for Democracy: Supporting education reforms in Ukraine aims to support democratic reforms in school education by promoting democratic culture and democratic citizenship in policy and practice. 

In close cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, Schools for Democracy aims to support systemic democratic transformations in the country. In particular, the programme supports the development and implementation of new policies. We facilitate re-training of teachers and school heads, and we support schools building safe and inclusive learning environments. Innovative teaching and learning materials, including digital, are also developed within the programme.
