On June 22, students of the Izium and Savinsk communities in Kharkiv Oblast received more than 600 Chromebooks and tablets.

The children of the Savinsk community received 536 gadgets, and students in Izium were provided with 105 devices. The equipment will ensure stable online learning, especially in the liberated territories, and facilitate the educational process for children and teachers.

The equipment was received with the assistance of the United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF. Moreover, UNICEF handed over certificates for receiving “recreational (sports)” kits, “early development” kits, and “school in a box” kits for the needs of educational institutions of the Izium district. These sets will be distributed among eight communities of the district.
