The Foundation supports the academic-humanitarian corridor of the University of Perugia

A few days ago, Olena Motuzenko, the pro-rector of the National University of Kiev, requested the opening of an academic-humanitarian corridor to support students caught up in the war between Russia and Ukraine. This will allow them to continue their studies in Italy without interruption: "in the name of the European values for which Ukraine has been fighting for eight years to defend them from the Putin regime".

The appeal did not fall on deaf ears and immediately materialized through an agreement between the University of Perugia, the Regional Agency for the Right to University Education of Umbria and the Umbria Region, which are taking action to supply housing and provide study grants for many young Ukrainian students.

The request for help also reached the Baldaccini Foundation through Professor Marco Moschini, professor at the University of Perugia and member of our Board of Directors, which was immediately accepted by our President Beatrice Baldaccini.

"The protection of the right to education is one of the Foundation’s main fields of action and one of the key elements for the development of an equitable and just society, which is why we have chosen to give our support to this important initiative - said Beatrice Baldaccini. This is only a first sign of support for the Ukrainian population. Faced with this tragedy, we immediately contacted our project partners who are preparing, together with many other realities, to welcome the more than 10.000 refugees who will arrive in our region. There will be a lot of work to do and everyone will be needed to ensure that people fleeing the war feel welcomed and, as far as possible, supported ”.
