is an international initiative of scientists and those aware of the role of science and innovation for the future of our civilization. From which this future will grow is education, which is severely impaired in conflict-torn countries. S4P supports these communities to care for the vulnerable and foster education, to open prospects for the future.

WHY THIS INITIATIVE?

Since February 24, a massive humanitarian crisis is growing within war-torn Ukraine. Special attention needs to be devoted to children, the elderly and disabled people who could not flee the conflict. They need our help, our partnership and our participation – on site. Not only to survive, but also to keep believing in a better future. As the greatest collective endeavour of modern times, science carries a responsibility to make a contribution.

WHY THIS INITIATIVE?

WHAT DO WE PURSUE?

WHAT DO WE PURSUE?

Within Ukraine, hand in hand with local communities, we identify and tackle local projects. These are performed with our support. Beyond improving living conditions and care for the needy, we focus on education, learning, and sports for schoolchildren.

Across the globe, we call for an international alliance offering free tertiary education to interested students from Ukraine, via online courses and classes. We aim to create a platform where such courses will be announced and students can register.

HOW TO IMPLEMENT?

Currently we work in strategic partnership with the Ukrainian non-profit youth organization “STAN”. “STAN“ founded at the end of 1990s in Luhansk, now operating from Ivano-Frankivsk. It is a community of young professionals working in the spheres of peacebuilding, education, culture, human rights, and media. From the first days of the Russian invasion of Ukraine “STAN“ organized welcome points and shelters for internally displaced persons and supports people in need with psychosocial and legal support, cash granting, food, and hygienic items. They also created a network of shelters in the Carpathian region and became an influential player in UN humanitarian aid clusters on the regional level.

STAN AND S4P JOIN FORCES TO SUPPORT UKRAINE

June 15, 2022 — Science4people aims at mitigating the severe adverse effects of the war on education and personal development of children, teenagers, and students deprived of their homes and – often – of their schools. In this regard, S4P is pleased to announce its cooperation with the youth and aid organization “STAN” www.stan.org.ua in Ukraine in order to provide even more targeted help on the spot. The Youth organisation “STAN” is a non-governmental organisation which utilises grassroots methods of informal education, emphasizing local initiatives and active citizenship, with a particular focus on vulnerable and marginalised groups. Driven by the core values of freedom, respect for human dignity, mutual assistance, and diversity of cultures and mindsets, the team of “STAN” strives to build up a creative civil society in Ukraine.

Toys and learning materials have reached Bakosh in Ukraine

May 25, 2022 — Experiencing children's gleaming eyes is one of the most beautiful moments in life. This is especially true in times of war, fear and uncertainty. And they are an urgent reminder of our human values and responsibilities, which are currently in disarray. In an initial initiative by Science4People, boxes of learning materials and toys have reached the elementary school in Bakosh in May 2022 which has been converted into a refugee shelter.

The smart tablets, laptops and beamers are urgently needed in order not to suspend lessons any further, but also to make them possible again via the digital possibilities of homeschooling. In this way, no further educational deficits should arise. Likewise, school work and projects are to be supported and promoted with these technical devices.

But also the skill games, puzzles and toys were accepted with enthusiasm by the refugee children on site and put to use immediately, providing a bit of normality and joy in unpleasant times. S4P would like to thank all donors, organizers and participants, especially our cooperation partner Hungarian Interchurch Aid (HIA) for the distribution.

CURRENT S4P PROJECTS

CURRENT S4P PROJECTS

The Elementary School of Bakosh in West Ukraine educates more than 300 pupils from the area. They currently can not attend school, because it has been transformed into a shelter for about 100 refugees (video). The following actions were identified to offer greatest benefits to the local and displaced children, and the community as a whole:

#1) Providing home schooling equipment for online education, construction of facilities to play sports activities in the schoolyard;

#2) Renovation of the school’s kitchen, dining hall, and sanitary facilities;

#3) Renovation of a building next to the school for more appropriate accommodation of refugees. This site is to be used as a youth center, once the refugees can return home.

Further projects will be announced soon.

WE

WE

Science4people.org has been initiated by members of the Attoworld Team based at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the Faculty of Physics of the Ludwig- Maximilians-Universität München. These institutions and their environment offer us excellent conditions not only for scientific research but also for our personal development. By education, professional training, recreation. We appeal for a global alliance of all those enjoying similar benefits to support the less privileged. Currently in war-torn Ukraine. We thank the Max Planck Society, and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München for supporting our initiative and Max Planck Foundation for generously serving as a legal platform for its implementation.
