With a mission “to overcome prejudice and strengthen human dignity, through creating safe space to teach teenagers and youth resilience in a changing world,” Tolerspace, based inKyiv, educates and trains educators in the field of tolerance and human rights.Since Russia’s war on Ukraine began, Tolerspace has been supporting teachers and students affected by the conflict. Many have survived shootings and rocket barrages, been subject to constant air radar sirens, and have been separated from their families. It provides mental health support to a network of Ukrainian teachers and has arranged evacuations of educators from conflict-affected areas. BlueCheck financial support has enabled ongoing mental health support of educators, including through webinars, and the provision of trauma-sensitive education to assist students and teachers with stress regulation. BlueCheck’s support helped Tolerspace launch a weekly psychological support group for educators and a weekly support group for child psychologists.
