Mission Statement

In Samantha Smith’s Group, hundreds of people are working together to help the Ukrainians who have been forced to leave their home country, to learn English and other languages.


Due to the war, a vast number of Ukrainians, both adults and children, have either been displaced or are preparing to leave Ukraine. They often arrive in other countries without any knowledge of the local language. We help these people to master a local language for faster and smoother integration into life in a new country.
