Partnership between UAIQ and GoFundEd to support STEM in Ukraine

February 7, 2018

We at receive a lot of excellent educational projects, that do not correspond to our focus.

That is why we have partnered with crowdfunding platform GoFunded( ) and will be exchanging details on projects with it.

We hope that GoFunded will be able to help projects that are far from our niche with funding.

After all, our common goal is to attract as many resources as possible for the development of STEM education in Ukraine!

Sincerely, team

Vitaliy Goncharuk, Dmytro Mishkin, Viktor Sdobnikov
