Programs of the Digital University Foundation have started to support Ukrainians residing in Poland

First, it supported drones, dressings, and medicines for civil defense. Now have started special aid and educational programs for women and children from Ukraine who came to Poland after February 24. The Digital University Foundation has supported Ukrainians since the beginning of the war – it has just launched projects to help refugees adapt better in Poland. You can still join the foundation's activities as a Partner or individual donor

IT for Ukraine

The project aims to supply Ukrainian students who, after February 24 this year, they joined Polish schools with computers and laptops. The Digital University Foundation coordinates the action of donating equipment collected by IT companies, which students will use for educational purposes and contact with relatives.

– Computers are an indispensable tool in school education today, yet many Ukrainian students leave their homes in a hurry, taking only the necessities that could fit into a backpack. We have extensive experience in cooperation with schools, and that is why we took up the task of coordinating IT actions for Ukraine. We encourage teachers and school principals to submit a request on our website. We simplified all the procedures so that the equipment reaches the students in need as quickly as possible – said Ela Wojciechowska, president of the Digital University Foundation.

The program was launched in April this year. So far, 80 schools have applied to the foundation, with orders for over 1.6 thousand computers. Educational institutions may only submit requests for students.

The University of Success for Ukrainian women

The University of Success is the foundation’s flagship project, carried out continuously since 2019. It is a free, one-year education program aimed at young women from disadvantaged backgrounds. It gives them a real chance to gain an attractive  ​​IT and digital marketing profession. In this year’s fourth edition, the foundation has prepared a pool of places for Ukrainian women. Applications and information about the project are available in Ukrainian, but knowledge of Polish or English will be required at a later stage.

Jowita Michalska, the founder of the Digital University Foundation, explains:

– The start of recruitment for the 4th edition of the University of Success coincided with the commencement of military operations in Ukraine, which is why we immediately decided to open recruitment for Ukrainian women fleeing the war. We had the full support of the project partners, for which we are very grateful to them. We quickly adapted the program to the needs of Ukrainian women – although the whole thing takes a year, apart from a 5-day workshop in July, the rest of the training can be done online, and you do not need to be in Poland. Importantly, knowledge of Polish will not be necessary if the participant speaks English.

The program includes career counseling, meetings with mentors, personal development workshops, and specialist courses in areas selected by the participants. Applications should be sent to: https://uniwersytetsukcesu.com/

Classes are conducted by trainers-educators and are held in three languages: Polish, Ukrainian, and Russian. It is an opportunity to learn the basics of programming with the help of the SkriBot educational robot, but also the chance to spend time with other Ukrainians and Poles in friendly conditions. Workshops are held twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays, from April to the end of June 2022 at the Local Activity Center – MAL Kotłownia in Warsaw’s Wola district.
