Ukraine: Education as the Battlefront of Democracy

April 6, 2017 from 2 - 4pm
Manor College Campus

Cost: FREE
Luncheon at 12:30 pm: $25 - Register here

This dialogue will examine the most crucial areas of educational reform needed in Ukraine in order to protect and preserve free and democratic ideals. Currently, the chief looming crises in Ukrainian education are conflicting ideals held by post-communist era sympathizers who have failed to embrace Western philosophies, and pay-to-GPA corruption where those entrusted with educating Ukraine's students are accepting cash for grades. The issues have connection through Ukraine's history with Russia and the resultant impact of the strained relationship on Ukraine's economy. Is there hope for reform of the Ukrainian educational system? Can the Ukrainian community and concerned Americans help Ukraine to resolve these crises?

Join us for our program and help us as we work toward uncovering and acting to embolden a solution.

Dr. Serhiy Kvit, Former Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine and Professor of Kyiv-Mohyla School of Journalism

Alex Kuzma, Executive Director of the Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation

Dr. Albert Kipa,
Former Rector 'President' of Ukrainian Free University in Munich, German, Professor Laureate of Comparative Literature, Muhlenberg University

The Ukrainian League is assisting with the initiative to collect non-perishable foods (e.g. canned soup, chili, canned tuna, canned beans, canned veggies, canned fruits, canned meats, pasta, rice, cereal, buckwheat, etc.). Any type of canned, non-fragile item that can withstand shipping and transportation by sea will do.

The collection bin is located in the bar downstairs, at the entrance.

This aid will be delivered to the volunteers in Kyiv, who are working to provide for soldiers in 92nd, 80th, and 79th battalion brigades, as well as The Right Sector (Pravyi Sektor).

Shipping will be done via Ukraine Express at a discounted rate.

Please do not hesitate to contact the League with any questions.

In addition to canned food, other items needed are:
550 Military Paracord Rope (for survival bracelets)


Warm Camo clothing

While these items are optional - the primary focus is the food drive - they are also important and necessary in the field. If you were inclined to purchase paracord rope, following are some of the links to give an idea of what is needed:

1000 feet rope (will make 60-75 survival bracelets)

300 feet rope (will make 18-21 bracelets)

100 feet rope (will make 6-7 bracelets)
