Our Mission

Adopt a School
Ukraine Protection and Development Fund

Adopt a School is a project of Ukraine Protection and Development Fund a non-profit registered in Ukraine which collects used office and school electronics and delivers them to students and schools in Ukraine to mitigate the educational disaster the disruption and devastation the Russian full scale invasion has caused.

We help by collecting and distributing used computers, laptops, iPads and other tablets, printers, other school supplies and office equipment for delivery to Ukraine.

A small communication campaign such as posters on message boards in visible areas.


Volunteers who will inventory and help pack the donations and prepare for the shipping company. If assistance is needed with volunteers, we can reach out as well.

Adopt a School Will

Arrange pick up

by the company that will deliver to Ukraine.

Receive the items

in Ukraine and check that they are still working.

Deliver to schools,

universities, other educational institutions, and individual students as needed; and

Report back with photos and videos

highlighting the distribution of the equipment.

Student and Faculty Participation

We hope that this is a foundation for long term relationship building including possibly language exchange, sharing perspectives in history, social studies, politics or world literature courses, perhaps even student, guest Professor or sports exchanges.

And we hope some in the community may wish to come to Ukraine to see it first hand; maybe even to help rebuild a school or community, once the war is over.
