According to the UN International Labor Organization report, almost five million Ukrainians have lost their jobs since the outbreak of the full-scale invasion.
To create opportunities for up-skilling and reskilling and further employment of Ukrainians, Google.org allocated a grant of USD 2 million. The grant funds will be used to promote digital education in Ukraine, in particular, to develop Diia.Digital Education platform.
Within the framework of the Program, which East Europe Foundation implements in cooperation with the Ministry of Digital Transformation and Tides Foundation with funds from Google.org, we plan to undertake the following:
Reskilling and improving the digital skills of Ukrainians, especially from the most vulnerable groups at risk of job insecurity such as forcibly displaced persons, women and the elderly, will certainly help them to be competitive on the labor market and reduce the unemployment rate in the country.
Program implementation is from October 2022 to January 2025.
