School for Ukrainian Refugees in Hungary

With the help of UCAP’s capital contribution and ongoing financial support, a new school dedicated to Ukrainian children in Budapest launched ahead of the 2023-2024 academic year. Operated by the House of Ukrainian Traditions, this institution offers a nurturing educational setting, delivering a well-rounded curriculum that respects and celebrates Ukrainian culture for young refugees. UCAP’s timely assistance played a crucial role in making this endeavor possible. The school has emerged as a cornerstone in providing stability and a strong sense of belonging for its students while cultivating a supportive community among students, educators, and families.

Thanks to your support, 130 children received education in their native Ukrainian language in Hungary. Despite the challenges of war and adjusting to a new environment, these children have shown remarkable resilience, making impressive strides in their studies and embracing the opportunity to advance their learning.

The 2023-2024 school year has successfully concluded, with all children receiving state-issued documents confirming their completion. Notably, eight students received graduation certificates and will be attending universities in Hungary, where they will study in both English and Hungarian.
