The PSI for Good (PSI4Good) Campaign is a unique collaborative in support of Pechersk School International in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Committed to the continuity of international education in Ukraine, this campaign brings together individuals and organisations that want to make an impact and ensure that Pechersk School International can continue to offer outstanding education for good.
Pechersk School International was opened in 1995 with just 47 students. By 2021, with close to 550 students, the school was an accredited IB World School, celebrating its 21st IB birthday, serving international and national families in Kyiv.
The name Pechersk is a reference to the location of the original school site in the district of Pechersk, which was also historically the city’s centre of learning. On February 24, 2022, the school was forced to close its campus as a result of the war.
Since the war began, individuals and organisations have come together in extraordinary and unprecedented ways to ensure that the school can continue to offer an outstanding education to its students, even away from home. The American School of Warsaw has given over a part of its campus and facilities to enable the school to open a temporary home for 80 students who have relocated from Ukraine to Poland.
Avenues: The World School has given access to students from Pechersk School International to use its world-renowned online learning platform.
“This is about PSI going home to Kyiv and supporting the restructuring of Ukraine.
Families will need an international school like PSI; a strong community with an exceptional learning programme. We want to be there to serve that community and to help with this fundamentally important effort, not only for Ukraine but for the rest of the world.”

Your support can also make a difference for the future of the students and families of Pechersk School International.
You can help us to continue to provide international education to our students... for good.
No one involved in this Campaign is taking any commission or fee for their work, so every cent that is raised goes directly to the school.
But there are so many others who have stepped up and offered their guidance and practical support. Below are just some of the organisations that are continuing to make a difference.
