UAH 1 billion 150 million 101 thousand are envisaged in 2018 to proceed with programmes to improve educational infrastructure – purchase of buses to transfer children to hub schools, equipment of natural science classrooms and inclusive education development. Appropriate funds are included in the state budget for 2018.
Thus, UAH 200 million are foreseen for the purchase of buses for hub schools, UAH 441.101 million for natural science classrooms, as well as UAH 509 million for support of the education of children with special educational needs.
Each of these educational programmes also receives funding from the local government.

“The decentralisation reform has provided significant opportunities for hromada development. In general, hromadas increased their revenues by about UAH 100 billion. It enables local authorities to better fulfill their powers to support and develop educational infrastructure. That is why now we see the schools and kindergartens being renovated and built, equipment being purchased,” said Liliya Hrynevych, Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine.
391 school buses were purchased, 1,915 natural science classrooms equipped, 29 schools and 16 kindergartens built during 2017.
