Drapers Hall in London has hosted charity ball timed to the 20-years anniversary of the London School Of Russian Language & Literature. Russian compatriots have gathered in historic staterooms where rich and famous people have gathered over the centuries.

Archbishop Elisei Surojsky, royal portraitist Sergey Pavlenko, actress Regina Myannik and other Russian elite representatives could be seen among the honored guests. They have mentioned the London School Of Russian Language & Literature as the one of the best Russian émigré institutions .

Soloists of Igor Moiseev Ballet and opera singers from the leading Moscow and St. Petersburg theaters were performing at the event.

The concert was followed with a small auction and scrumptious dinner. The school organisers have thanked the guests for attendance, and promised to continue the work on saving precious national traditions and on inspiring children with love to the Russian language and culture.

Most people don’t know that they owe their existence to Russian inventors. At the turn of the twentieth century, Russia had one of the strongest schools of inventors in the world, although in many ways it developed in spite of circumstances. We discussed this topic with Tim Skorenko, the author of the book Invented in Russia and editor-in-chief of the Popular Mechanics website.
The idea for the Teacher for Russia program originated with two graduates from Saint Petersburg State University, Alena Makovich and Elena Yarmanova after they came across Teach for All, a major international network of nongovernmental social enterprises. Four years have passed since then, and this year the Russian program celebrated its first graduating class.
