The Rybakov Foundation is a private philanthropic organization, created by Ekaterina and Igor Rybakov in 2015
Education for
, education for
the family
Our mission is to support and protect the interests of families all over the world, on a journey to quality education, success, prosperity and well-being. This is our contribution to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4.

Our objective is #familyfocused. We are calling on education systems and educational communities all over the world to be guided by the interests and needs of the family. This means access to prosperity and well-being through quality education for all members of the family.
Family is the place from where we venture out into the world and where we return. It is our home, our "assembly point," the place where we are loved and accepted, where we recover. The mission of a family is to bring up a self-sufficient and capable person, a happy human being, and to release her / him into the outer world. We aim to inspire the school and the entire educational environment to support the family in carrying out this important and challenging mission, to focus on its interests and needs.
Family is the most wonderful thing in every person's life. It is the place where the future is born; it protects and shelters us from the storms of life. It is where our strengths and victories are built, the place where we are loved and always welcomed. And at the same time the family is a very delicate and fragile structure, sometimes destroyed by a single careless word or by a rash act. We should be able to see, feel and protect this tenderness.
