Personal letter from Jarmila Baudišová
many years ago AVAST began developing the first antivirus programs in order to protect data and computer security and thus help protect almost half a billion users around the world. The Avast Foundation, which was created six years ago, builds on these values. It helps people facing various problems to achieve better quality of life, to freely make decisions about their life, and to be part of a mutually supportive community.
Our programs primarily focus on systemically supporting care at end-of-life and on supporting families with children with a disability. The beginning and end of life are two stages of life which we believe to be very important. We work together with selected specialists, we pay attention to actual needs and we trust those who have been professionally working in these specific areas for many years. We are also interested in areas such as scientific development, cultural heritage and art, support for sport for the disadvantaged and education.
