Zoya Lytvyn


Zoya Lytvyn co-founded Novopecherska, a K12 school in Kyiv that uses innovation to help reform education in Ukraine while also reinvesting extra profits in their NGO, Osvitoria. Their educational projects, including a free online teaching platform and trainings for teachers from deprived areas, aim to create quality and accessible education throughout Ukraine.


Lytvyn’s business supports the following SDGs:

Goal 4: Quality Education

Goal 10: Reduced Inequality

Goal 17: Partnerships to achieve the Goal


“Novopecherska school is an example of the impact of a responsible business. Our goal is to improve life of kids all over Ukraine, not only in our school. So we provide equal access to quality education, as quality of rural and urban education in Ukraine are dramatically unequal.”


Zoya was selected as a 2019 WE Empower Awardee.
