Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia and her foundation launched a brand new and free online education project with support from LINKgroup which provides ITAcademy courses to children without parental care.

Thanks to Her Royal Highness young people aged 11 to 22 can attend different one-month online courses using the unique LINK Distance Learning system, in various fields such as English, Computer Basics, Programming Basics, WordPress, and Adobe Photoshop.

Upon the launch, Crown Princess Katherine said: “My Foundation has made a project for young people, so they can progress further and become even more successful. Now is the ideal time for them to work on themselves and for themselves, and they will see how learning can be fun, too. I hope that this online education will be of great use to young people. I wish them to be persistent and proud of their achievements at the end of the course because knowledge is power.”

The goal is for the children use their time to broaden their horizons in a safe environment and for them to find out how learning can be fun, as well as how to use these newly acquired skills to have more job opportunities when they leave the children’s homes.

A statement from LINKgroup reads: “It gives us great pleasure to support the initiative of HRH Crown Princess Katherine, who has been an excellent partner for years. We have the same goal and a clear mission, to provide top-quality education to as many people as possible, enabling them to acquire knowledge, achieve their goals and have the life they want and deserve.”

Crown Princess Katherine thanked the teachers from the children’s homes who helped organise this project. Their contribution and authority will be very important to the children during this process.
