Two Brussels women named Maria and Kira have made the declaration that they are going to build up an educational institution that will be free as well as a bilingual school for several dozen children from the war-torn nation in the Rue Belliard after the Easter holidays.
As per the reports, the building of the school will be located on Rue Billiard 4-6 as well as discovered gratitude towards the network of Maria, who has signed the agreement with the owner.
Moreover, Maria mentioned the statement, “When you travel from family to family, the school has to become the anchor point.”
The school can stay in that location for around six months, after which Maria hopes for the structural financing to develop a structural operation.
Along with this, a few weeks ago, Maria, as well as Kira, posted a call for volunteers to come forward and help with the educational institution, which is being called Vesna, which is a word that means ‘spring’ in Ukrainian, Polish as well as Russian.
They were looking for a location that is close to the metro, making it easily accessible from all of the corners of Brussels. Currently, Maria has an estimation of around 30 to 40 pupils, but the figure can still increase. The maximum capacity is approximately about 100 pupils.
In addition, the multilingual schools have begun with the philosophy that the young ones do not have to leave behind their culture as well as language baggage and that their free schools and child centers can support them with the change and integration.
Furthermore, Maria has added the statement, “It is better to build on the knowledge that a child already has when they arrive here. That is why we consider Ukrainian lessons so important, but they will also be taught other languages such as French and Dutch.”
