When the crisis in Ukraine began one year ago, ORT immediately stepped up to meet the challenges as they unfolded.

Thanks to our supporters we have been able to provide educational instruction, as well as much-needed aid and supplies, to our students, teachers and their families.

Hear live from ORT leaders who are working most closely on the educational and humanitarian responses across Ukraine.
