Sister Schools

We seek to create a “Sister School” program between schools in South Sudan and schools in Europe, Russia and the United States.

Why South Sudan

Because the children in one of the world’s newest states are in desperate need of basic educational resources.

Making Skiing more inclusive

Fundraisers, contests and efforts to support young people who share our passion for skiing.

Our activities


  • An annual charity Ski tournament at our school. Parents will be asked to “sponsor” their child in this competition. 100% of proceeds will be given to a reputable and established South Sudanese non-profit organization.
  • Actively seeking to form “Sister School” programs at various private schools worldwide. This will give students and parents outside Africa a way to help encourage education in South Sudan. If you are interested in establishing a “Sister School” program between your school and a school in South Sudan, please contact us.
  • South Sudan is a country that has chosen English as its official language. But there is a strong demand for English books and English teachers. So we plan to have regular “book drives,” with the books being shipped to various schools in South Sudan

With your generous support, we can help an entire generation

  • We are the Shcherbakovskiy siblings, Nikita, Igor and Maria. Thank you for visiting our website! We first learned about South Sudan in a TV news story that we watched during a school holiday. We were horrified to see the conditions of the world’s newest country and were especially sad to see how children lived there. With our parents’ encouragement, we decided to devote our free time to helping. As a professional athlete who hopes to compete at the Olympic level for Israel, Nikita has decided to direct his athletic efforts to raise money for education in South Sudan. As a rising college student in the USA, Igor aims to raise money to make skiing more democratic and less elitist. As a high-school student, Maria is passionately committed to making skiing more accessible to communities of children around the world. Please follow us for updates about our fundraising activities and events.

Our parents often remind us how lucky we are to obtain an excellent education. Growing up in the USSR, they lacked these things.

So we’ve decided to use our charity and our family passion for skiing to improve the lives of the poorest people.
