The K.FUND charitable foundation, under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and with grant support from the Ukrainian Startup Fund, continues to implement the Ukraine Global Faculty (UGF) project. Its mission is to bring world-class education to Ukraine, making it accessible to everyone who is willing to learn, regardless of income, education, age, gender or place of residence.
