We defended the right to educate children in hospitals!

From the first lesson of the educational program for children with HIV/AIDS at the National Children's Hospital "Okhmatdyt", we defended their right to education. And we proved the need to provide educational services in hospitals at the state level. The advocacy campaign lasted for 6 years, and finally the Superheroes School received state status.
Eugenia Smirnova, founder of Superheroes School

What is the Superheroes

It is a network of free schools in medical institutions. Children who are forced to undergo inpatient treatment study here. It is a space where childhood lives and where they can break away from procedures and diagnoses. The Superheroes School has been a state institution since 2022, founded by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine with the support of the Office of the President and the First Lady. The Superheroes School's educational centers are already operating here:

  • Kyiv - National Children's Hospital "Okhmatdyt" of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine
