Google allocates $2 million for digital education in Ukraine
The technological giant Google provides 2 million dollars for digital education for Ukrainians and 50 thousand Workspace licenses for the Cabinet of Ministers.
Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov announced this on Telegram.
What is the problem?
The Ministry of Digitization has a large-scale goal — to teach 6 million Ukrainians digital literacy in three years.
What is the solution?
Google supports the digital literacy of Ukrainians and the field of education.
How does it work?
"We will direct the new $2 million grant to training Ukrainians in digital literacy, overcoming the digital divide, and scaling the Diia.Digital Education platform," Fedorov noted.
"Google services have already become part of the infrastructure of the Ministry of Digital Transformation. Now, other state institutions will be able to work faster, despite the shelling and constant threats of russian cyberattacks. This will be helped by 50,000 Google Workspace licenses, which authorities can use for free all year long," the minister wrote.
In addition, the Ministry of Digital Transformation plans to launch an English-language version of the portal with reskilling programs, personalized learning trajectories with AI elements, and employment recommendations.
