I am sure that most of you are aware of the situation on Ukraine. I personally think that as an international sociaty at least we can try to help in a peaceful way. That's why I would like to encourage all Pioneer's tech companies and entrepreneurs to join #TechForUkraine initiative.

More info from the #TechForUkraine team:

In the first 24 hours of #TechForUkraine campaign, we gathered over 100 IT companies willing to help non-profit organizations working for Ukraine!

Offering your resources and time is a real help and we are thankful for every pledge

We know that many of the Civil Society Organizations are now on the field, providing help to those in need – we just wanna let as many as possible know – there are incredible, innovative people ready to bring technological advancement to let them do more, effectively! Help us reach out to them!

We offer free digital help to:
-Ukrainian-based NGOs
-International NGOs providing help for Ukraine

You don’t have to be Ukraine-based and the help you provide doesn’t have to be related to humanitarian aid. It can relate to:
-fighting fake news and disinformation
-civil society
-psychological help
-legal help
-other fields

The areas that IT companies are able to help with:
-building databases
-safe communication
-resource management systems
-donations management system
-customer software building

Any non-profit that is acting to support Ukrainian society is welcome to join. The link is in the comments.

Please share this message, and allow changemakers in the arena to get the best tools while fighting for freedom, and resilience

Update from #TechForUkraine team:

#TechForUkraine status for today

225 companies from 40+ countries and over 400 freelancers submitted their willingness to help. Whooah!

Ukrainian NGOs are at war right now. Many of them suspended their operations and are taking care of families. They need a situation to calm down until we can support them with technology.

Numerous NGOs and grassroots groups from the region are acting and supporting migrants. Technology is key to make it work efficiently - this will be our priority for the next few days.

Most difficult stuff right now:

Coordination. We don't need 20 AirBnBs for Migrants, two or three for each country in the region will be enough.

Patience. Numerous coders are making stuff independently to do something. That's not bad but it may cause even more chaos. It may me more useful to take a breath, reach TTTR to ask if there is something similar already going on and support teams that are already advanced in the making.

Balancing urgent action with mid-term strategy.

To all Companies and Freelancers who applied - thank you! This is the right thing to do! Please be patient, follow our email instructions and wait until we reach back with a project opportunity matching your skills and expertise.

The need is not there only today. It will be there for the next few months or even years. Having all of you in our database makes us sure we'll be able to answer all the needs and coordinate the tech response as effectively as possible.
