Coding Clubs –Aj Ty v IT Coding club - were focused on creative electronics. We programmed small handy devices called “micro:bit” at a workshop led by skilled lecturer. All the participants were introduced to the logic of micro:bit and were able to code simple tasks thanks to graphic blocks. The course was aimed to all curious high school girls - age 15-19 years, who are interested in the magic of IT world. We worked on 3D printers and girls created very beautiful bags in Bratislava.
New Academies for women
We prepared very beautiful and inspirated event- Frida. There were around one hundread participants and Women speakres who talked abou their carreer in IT.
For all women that have an interest in the world of IT, data and analysis, we are setting up a new project - Women data academy.
Those curious women who are interested in the IT world and do not know where and how to begin, can sign up for Women Tester Academy. The aim of the course is to prepare the participants for software testing of various applications and greater functional modules. .
In addition to the new academies, we also organized workshops that can not only improve the skills of our graduates, but also raise the success rate of getting a job. The courses were designed for women interested in technologies, UX and various soft-skills as well.

Celebrate with us!

Super heroes who make Great country
Great country - an online donation fundraising platform - celebrates 10 years! Woohoo!
We decided to throw a different party. Instead of making the party about us, it will be about all the nonprofits, who have been making Slovakia a greater country since 2009.
The whole summer we have travelled around Slovakia to visit even the furthest corners and visit our nonprofits. We will introduce the people who stand behind them. Those who are the power engines of progress in Slovakia, but are often hidden, not talked about, overwhelmed by everyday work.
Treasure Mountain Therapeutic summer camp for bereaved children
By Dr. Maria Jasenkova - CEO of Plamienok
This year thanks to support of many people and institutions we were able to organize 10th Therapeutic summer camp for children and young people after the loss of their close relative. From 14th till 21st of July, 2019 in Lubietová 41 children from all over Slovakia attended the camp activities led by team of ten professionals (therapists and psychologists) and trained volunteers. Through the theme "Treasure Mountain“ we tried to help children and adolescents in their bereavement process.
We have the mountain inside and treasures that enriched us and we can share with others. Games, creative activities, trips and therapeutic sharing during the camp helped children discovered their own treasure mountain. In the pictures below they decided to create for us and our donors, maybe you can find inspiration for your own life. In this way we help each other and grow together.
We are pleased to be able to publish these pictures that demonstrate wisdom and inner transformation of many children and give us a lot of satisfaction.
