Ukrainian Crisis Support

One of the incredible strengths of the AISB community is the way our families respond to support those in need. 

Our school has been working to coordinate its response to the crisis, in the hope that we can mobilize our community to make a difference in the lives of those impacted. 

We have been supporting a number of initiatives that have connections with our school community both in Ukraine and at the border and adapting to their needs with our calls for item donations, transporting logistics and monetary donations.Our main project as a whole school has been the establishment and facilitation of the 'Ukrainian Refugee School' program on our campus.

Ukrainian Refugee School

Ukrainian Refugee School

 

Since March 2022, we supported over 200 refugee children in a volunteer-led program aimed at continuing their education in Ukrainian and building a supportive community on our campus. We currently run an after-school program to help children maintain learning in their home language. If you wish to contact our organizers for more information, please email sws@aisb.hu.

Our ability to grow is matched by the funds which we can secure to ensure the teachers receive a suitable stipend, we greatly appreciate all who can give to help this worthwhile cause.

Supporting Education and Understanding

Supporting Education and Understanding

Large numbers of children have been displaced, and the school is mindful of the impact this has on their learning and well-being. AISB works on multiple levels of support for students displaced by the current conflict.

For students enrolled in the Ukrainian national school system who have relocated to Budapest, AISB will work to provide access to school facilities outside of regular operational hours to enable them to continue learning with access to high-quality facilities. Where possible, the school will work to include these students in after-school programs.

We are hopeful that this provision may go some way to alleviate the incredible stress these families are experiencing at this time.

We have been working together with UNHCR and UNICEF to support continuing education for refugee children in Hungary. For more information visit - https://help.unhcr.org/hungary/help/education/
