When a crisis hits, schools are a safe space for children as a driver for hope and dreams.
When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, every school had to introduce remote learning. And when the war hit Europe two years later, Ukrainian students and teachers had to adapt again.
In times of war, classrooms remain a place where children find a sense of stability and process trauma. However, disparities have long existed regarding education. Depending on financial status, location and country of residence, not every child has access to schooling equally.
