Over the last 15 years BRSEducaiton has been proud to develop the Ukraine Project building on the work begun by British Humanitarian Aid (Canterbury). The Ukraine Project is organised in conjunction with British Humanitarian Aid; a charity based in Canterbury, Kent. The project began 15 years ago, with the intention to support the development of an impoverished village, while offering a cultural experience for young people from the UK and Ukraine. Emphasis is made on developing a wider cultural understanding, enjoying shared experiences and contributing in a positive way to improving the prospects of those who reside in the village of Makoshino.
To date, there have been 10 summer camps, engaging thousands of Ukrainian and UK children, providing funding for a central venue for social care (Arratta), where children and families can get support and receive essential donations of food and clothing. Equipment has been purchased for the village Kindergarten, Hospital, School, Palace of Culture and Library. This has included toys, kitchen equipment, window repairs, hospital beds, medicines, sports equipment and library books.
