The founders of our foundation are convinced that education is the key component of positive changes. It may help countries to succeed by providing solutions to hunger, poverty, unemployment, increasing health, and combating pollution and irrational use of natural resources. As a result, one of the primary goals of the 2009-founded "Scholae Mundi" Charity Foundation that supporting programs to provide young people with high-quality education opportunities.
Reflections on what kind of education to give children and what values to nurture in them have identified formats and projects for support. And today, ten years on, the "Scholae Mundi" Foundation maintains the same principles, seeks, and promotes best world practices in education. We take a long-term view with an emphasis on large-scale and ambitious charitable programmes with a multiplier effect.

Establishment of “Scholae Mundi” Charity Foundation
Education is based on humanitarian values that guide a person throughout their life.
It takes the knowledge and experience of many people, talented in different fields, to be successful.
It takes 10 to 20 years for the project's impact on the socio-economic environment to become visible.
We focus on the potential of the projects’ chain reaction to initiate a range of new development cycles.
Behind each "Scholae Mundi" project are wonderful people who do their job with care for others, bringing not only their professional skills to the projects but also their talent, creativity, and love of life. All of the initiatives on the foundation's platform are supported by pro-bono volunteers: professionals who willing to impact a brighter future. UWC assessors in Russia volunteer 415 hours each year to select the best representatives of our country on a global scale. Every year, over 100 professionals and 200 young specialists - alumni of the Surpass dreams program - assist talented students in gaining new knowledge and putting their abilities into practice.
Each year as minimum four organizations joined the Hand-in-hand grant contest to share their professional knowledge with the finalists of the competition. You can learn more about this from our reports and articles.
