For Immediate Release


The Osvita Foundation Inc. was established in 1982 as a charitable organization and is committed to supporting excellence in education through the promotion of the English Ukrainian Bilingual Program (EUBP) and Manitoba Parents for Ukrainian Education. The Osvita Foundation has supported the Ukrainian Bilingual Program for over 30 years and is proud to boast that there are 12 Manitoba Schools that offer the valuable opportunity to learn Ukrainian in the public school setting.


The Board of Directors of the Osvita Foundation invites you to join us this year as they plan to honour Orysia Tracz on June 20, 2013.


Orysia Tracz has been an articulate and informative voice of the Winnipeg Ukrainian Community for more than 40 years. She has been a writer, commentator, lecturer and a steadfast advocate for all things Ukrainian.  She has published countless articles in numerous journals and has translated at least ten books from Ukrainian into English. Orysia has been a willing consultant offering advice to various Ukrainian Ensembles and individuals across North America. Her sons attended the English Ukrainian Bilingual Program and she has been a supporter since its inception. In June Orysia will be in Australia where she has been invited by the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organizations to speak to their community in celebration of their 65th Anniversary of Ukrainian Settlement.


Please feel free to contact our office at (204) 942-5405 with any questions.
