Skopje, Macedonia |
Working towards a greater purpose and driven by our people’s passion to make a difference in the communities we are part of, Endava, together with Reward Gateway and Haselt, were the main organisers at IT4Charity, a musical event in Skopje that aims to raise funds for the children at SOS Children’s Villages Macedonia. It was a great event where three local bands performed in front of over 900 people, leading to over 8000 Euros in funds raised.
Our initiative impacted 122 children and youngsters without parental care. A significant part of the funds raised were used to contract various experts, ensuring educational support for high school students, with the rest of the money invested in a medical device used to help youngsters suffering from cystic fibrosis, as well as to enable 28 high-school students to join a skiing school during their winter vacation.
We were happy to contribute to the great work done by the international non-profit organisation dedicated to protecting children’s rights and we hope to inspire others to get involved in such initiatives.
“Thanks to your support, we’re able to launch a lot of activities focusing on the wellbeing of children and youngsters without parents and parental care, as well as children and families at risk. We hope that we will continue our successful collaboration in the coming years, as the effectiveness of our initiatives is made possible solely with the support of good friends like you.
” Julijana Nakova Gapo, National Director SOS Children’s Villages Macedonia
Due to the success of this event we plan to continue and diversify the initiatives under the IT4Charity umbrella, making an even greater impact in the Macedonian community.
