The TESOL Board of Directors and staff share the world’s distress and grief regarding the events unfolding in Ukraine. It is our strong hope that this volatile situation will soon come to a peaceful resolution. 

TESOL stands with organizations, educators, and learners who wish to change the world through education. 

For our members who have asked what they can do to help our Ukrainian colleagues and other civilians caught in this crisis, we offer the following list of professional aid organizations: 

UNICEF is supporting health, nutrition, safe drinking water, sanitation, and protection for children and families caught in the conflict in Ukraine. 

The International Rescue Committee
The International Rescue Committee is preparing to provide critical aid to displaced families affected by conflict in Ukraine. 

International Committee of the Red Cross
The Switzerland-based international organization seeks to help people affected by the conflict and support the work of the Ukrainian Red Cross. 

Voices of Children
The charitable foundation of this organization is helping to provide psychological and psychosocial support to children affected by the Ukrainian conflict and helps them to overcome consequences of armed conflict.
