Online Classes on Security for Children

Children are vulnerable to emergencies not only during the war but also in peacetime. Children’s awareness of the risks associated with emergencies can help protect their health and lives even after hostilities have ended.

Activities within the Online Classes on Security for Children Program will help its participants acquire practical skills to respond to emergencies.

Online Classes on Security for Children include the following:

  • A nationwide multimedia online course on civil safety and emergency preparedness for children, developed in cooperation with the State Emergency Service of Ukraine (DSNS);
  • A video tutorial on landmine safety for children, along with the landmine safety teaching methodology for educators;
  • Teacher training in 25 selected amalgamated territorial communities in Lviv, Volyn, and Poltava oblasts.

Upon the Program completion, children will be increasingly aware of the basics of civil defense, emergencies, and potential hazards in their communities. They will also develop practical emergency response skills.

The Program implementation period is from June 2022 to February 2023.

The Online Classes on Security for Children Program was made possible thanks to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the sincere support of the American people through the USAID HOVERLA Project.
