Who are they?

The Ita Wegman Institute is a training center for salvation pedagogy and social therapy, located in Moscow. The IWO was founded in November 1993 and was the first training for salvation pedagogy and social therapy in Russia. In January 2001, a collaboration with the regular Moscow City Pedagogical University was established. This means the students have been following a state-recognized education ever since.


In 2020, during the pandemic, people started offering online classes. A consequence of opening the online classes to a larger audience was that students who live further away could follow the course. A separate group was started online for them.
