Toronto Foundation’s past Support and Partnership with the Nová škola Foundation in Prague


The Wallace F. Toronto Foundation supported and partnered with the Nová škola (New School) Foundation based in Prague, Czech Republic.  In addition to its support of the Rozlety after-school mentoring program, the foundation made a substantial contribution in December 2007 of textbooks and other reference materials to be used by Nová škola’s students.

Nová škola provides underprivileged children from a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds the additional academic support and encouragement to succeed academically.  Most Nová škola students are from the minority Romany community among whom illiteracy and drop-out rates are substantially higher than average in the Czech Republic.
