Our programs primarily focus on systemically supporting care at end-of-life and on supporting families that have 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.
Avast is now a global company with 99% of users outside the Czech Republic. The majority of its employees, however, work in the Czech Republic. That is why we keep our home in mind and primarily support Czech non-profits and projects.
A great landmark of 2017 was the creation of a new program called Learn Together, focused on educational support. We consider quality, modern, teaching to be the basis for preparing children in the best possible way for future life in the current, fast-developing world. Our first support was directed towards innovation in digital education and teachers.
We also have a home and staff in other countries on several continents where we all share the same opportunity to engage in supporting their communities through the program Together with Employees.. We are excited about all we have achieved during the relatively short existence of the Foundation. We enjoy the support of Avast management and staff, and are thrilled that their interest in our work continues to grow. Many are working with us and some volunteer on our projects or are themselves volunteers in areas and regions they know well and from which they come. They know that together we can simply do it better.
