For reference: 
Before the war, Charitable Foundation "The Future for Children" took care of children who needed help for family reasons in a boarding school at the Nyzhnyobystrivska Gymnasium.  Since 2021, the employees of the Foundation and the Gymnasium have helped over 500 children and adults.  However, with the beginning of the war, a shelter for internally displaced people, who had lost their homes, was created on the territory of the Gymnasium.  The team of the Charitable Foundation "The Future for Children" is a team of activists, who started and implemented the project of the public organization "IT Education Development", which supports young IT specialists and the development of the IT sector in Ukraine.
