The government will pay for students travel in Ukraine

Государство оплатит школьникам путешествия по Украине

Ukrainian schoolchildren will be able to travel more in their home country. It is expected that financial conditions will be established in 2020. The authorities plan to create a so-called “mobility programme” schoolchildren from all regions of Ukraine. This was stated by the head of the Ministry of culture, youth and sport Volodymyr Borodyansky. The program will work as follows: it will be able to participate in about every fifth school in the country, excursion trips for students pay from the state budget. The Minister has already said that this initiative supported at the highest level, in particular the President and the Cabinet of Ministers. Also the head of the Ministry of culture has promised that it will not just free travel for pupils, but also a kind of homework for children. As explained Borodyansky, everyone participating in the program the student upon return to your school will tell you how was his trip, will share their emotions, knowledge and experiences. At the moment, “mobility program” is not included in the draft budget for next year, but in the near future it can add. On what principle will be selected by schools and students for participation in the program is unclear. Currently, Ukrainian students have the opportunity to travel to Ukraine with certain benefits. In particular, children aged 6 to 14 years old can save on travel by train Railways a quarter of the cost of the ticket. Children under 6 years are entitled to free travel on the trains.
