The information guide with links to educational resources is available in Ukrainian and in English, and can be shared by the national and international education institutions to facilitate the continuous education process for the displaced children of Ukraine.

Countries that accept children from Ukraine are encouraged to share this information guide on their official websites. Please see the relevant links below.
