We believe education should be a gift for everyone at any age. There is a French expression that says ‘Un homme averti en vaut deux’, a warned man worth two men. An educated child is an asset for its family, for its country and the humanity in whole.

The Raymond Nicolet Trust was initiated with the dream of sharing the gift of education with the children of Serbia. As part of our support, we would like to offer online educational resources. Much is available through the World Wide Web. We will sign post here a selection of free resources from various sources. Although we do our best, we cannot always guarantee the quality of the resources. They will mostly be in French or English in various academic subjects such as Languages, History, Science, Math, Chemistry, Economics, etc….

We hope you will help us by sharing your views and tips. Many of these free links have been curated on a digital tool called ‘Pearltrees’. That way, they can be easily shared. you can subscribe to our Pearltrees to continue to be notified by any new links added. As everywhere on the internet, there is a wealth of knowledge to access. You still need to be careful of online tracking and online security issues. Tara Taubman-Bassirian who has created these resources provides privacy and online security advices on three platforms. You can join the Fly A Kite Facebook group for news on online security and privacy, The Data Rainbow website for more specialised privacy and Data Protection issues.

Our Twitter account @NicoletTrust will tweet and chat Education as well as the events we organise. We will regularly, echo news on available scholarships or online courses that are made available. The resources are aimed to students as well as teachers or anyone wishing to gain knowledge.
