Join us in supporting Sova - organisation founded by a person with disability for people with disabilities in Belarus. The work that Sova is doing is crucial for tackling the problems of social exclusion of people with disabilities that are really relevant for the country.

What does Sova do?

Today the foundation offers distance learning for people with disabilities in order to help them get a profession and lead a financially independent life. 20 educational courses are available for studying individually, the subjects of courses vary from programming to psychology. The most popular courses are “Anatomy of HTML and CSS"; “Course on CMS Joomla"; “IT-recruiting"; “SEO-promotion"; and foreign languages. More than 200 people are trained thanks to the foundation every year.

Moreover, the organisation launched Job.sova.by – the first website in Belarus for job search for people with disabilities. The team is now cooperating with European Humanities University to develop a mobile phone app.

Why are we doing this?

Depending on the amount raised, the funds collected will be used for payment of fees of the external teachers, administrative expenses for maintaining the web platforms for distance learning and job search, organisation of meetings and workshops in Minsk and other cities, and purchasing a specialised vehicle (used) for transportation of the participants with disabilities who are otherwise prevented from any in-person trainings and workshops as the state support system can not provide enough mobility.

If we reach the fundraising target, the amount raised will be matched by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, doubling the impact. So join us today for a more inclusive Belarus!
