“Cooperation was proposed within the framework of the development of the educational environment, assistance to students in exercising the right to education in war conditions, creating additional opportunities for access to educational platforms and resources from Ukraine. Proposals were also made to conduct 10-day visits aimed at familiarizing students of different age groups with the activities of law enforcement agencies, the judiciary, the mayor’s office of the city of Philadelphia, in order to provide concrete examples of democratic standards for the operation of public institutions in the United States of America to Ukrainian students fighting for the right to education and obtaining a diploma in extremely difficult conditions,” the UOC-KP reports.
