LVIV, Ukraine–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SoftServe, a leading digital authority and consulting company, and UNICEF Ukraine are expanding their strategic partnership through 2023. SoftServe will now serve as an advisor and technology partner on UNICEF Ukraine’s projects working toward the goals of sustainable development for children. The parties have outlined opportunities for cooperation in software development and other activities to support UNICEF programs in Ukraine in education, health, child protection, social policy, communication for development, and others.
The partnership between SoftServe and UNICEF Ukraine began in April 2020. To date, the parties have implemented numerous initiatives, including a platform for collecting and analyzing COVID-19 statistics in Ukraine, the launch of the country’s National Volunteer Platform, a web portal dedicated to reforming Ukraine’s school nutrition system, an infant care app for young parents, and an evidence-based medicine website. In 2021, SoftServe will also work on updating the national vaccination portal.
“We observe that Ukrainian society is transforming rapidly with new demands calling for new solutions,” said Lotta Sylwander, UNICEF Representative in Ukraine. “That is why UNICEF is interested in expanding its cooperation with innovative partners like SoftServe that can offer their knowledge base and create technological solutions for today’s challenges. Ensuring access to verified and timely information is key to our activities supporting children, parents, youth, and communities. This helps us to hear their voices and allows them to make informed choices regarding their health, nutrition, education, and future in general.”
“We appreciate the opportunity to support UNICEF’s projects in Ukraine as they systematically address social issues in child protection,” said Yaroslav Lyubinets, co-founder and head of the board of directors at SoftServe. “What resonates with us is the fact that the goal of these initiatives – to enable talented people to change the world – aligns perfectly with SoftServe’s mission.”
Partnership projects are implemented as pro bono or volunteer initiatives involving Open Tech, SoftServe’s charity crowdsourcing platform for time and technical skills contributions.
