From the students: Hospital internship in Jodhpur, India

I have been focusing primarily on science and medicine over the last two and half years.

Nadace Educa, a foundation of Mrs. Renáta Kellnerová and Mr. Petr Kellner, and THE KELLNER FAMILY FOUNDATION were two of the most prolific donors in the Czech Republic.

From the students: Ten days in Qatar

Doha. Skyscrapers actually scraping the skies, and cranes on them, relentlessly building more and more floors; cultural monuments, which are monumental but, primarily, large; men in suits but also in traditional Arab robes, women in niqabs and burkas, but also without them – Doha, a metropolis of the Arab world, where the sun warms the streets up to over 20 °C even in February. But to explain how in fact I got to Doha in February and how the Educa Foundation helped me in this I have to take you a couple of months and several thousand kilometers back.
