Ukrainian Children at USAID jp.ik Pop-Up Classroom

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced today the delivery of a pop-up classroom donated by jp.ik to support education for internally displaced Ukrainians. The donation, which also includes 1,210 laptops, backpacks and headsets, 857 tablet notebooks, and six charging trolleys that will help Ukrainian youth continue learning during wartime. This donation is a result of USAID’s active engagement with the private sector to support Ukraine, including efforts to fill a critical need for supplies for Ukrainian students. The pop-up classroom is located in Zahaltsi village of Borodyanka community in Kyiv Oblast, where severe damage to the local school made it impossible for students to attend class in-person. Students will be able to return to study in-person through the pop-up facility, as well as use donated equipment to continue their education. 

Putin’s brutal war against Ukraine has created tremendous challenges for educators and students across the country. Thousands of schools have been damaged or destroyed and according to UNICEF’s Humanitarian Action for Children up to 2.8 million children have been displaced from their homes. Although distance learning resumed two weeks after Russia’s full-scale invasion began in February 2022, many young people struggle to access remote education options due to a shortage of devices and, increasingly, as a result of the Russian Federation’s strikes against civilian infrastructure. 

This donation builds on the donation of 5,000 laptops and software made by HP Inc., Microsoft, and the Global Business Coalition in December.

USAID Response in Ukraine


Since the start of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine on February 24, 2022, USAID has remained committed to helping Ukraine win the war against the Kremlin’s aggression and, ultimately, win the peace by emerging strong and capable of continuing to advance as a sovereign, independent, democratic, and prosperous society, free to choose its own future.
