MaydanSF

MaydanSF is a platform created by Ukrainians living in the San Francisco Bay Area to support Ukraine in its fight for Democracy, Independence, and Freedom. Our current goal is to help Ukraine stand up to Russian aggression by bringing awareness to people in the SF Bay Area about events in Ukraine, so that we can all support Ukraine together. MaydanSF collects donations and sends help to Ukrainian army. We arrange for the purchase and shipment of needed equipment directly to Ukrainian soldiers and army volunteers. We report all spending and purchases here, on our facebook page. Brave Ukrainian people are fighting for the Country’s freedom now, they need our help.

"Diane Francis: Turning Ukraine from ‘the world’s bread basket to the world’s brain basket"....

There are roughly 2,000 significant startups in the country, built on successes in the past by Ukrainian tech giants such as Grammarly, an online writing enhancement software, or Paymentwall, an online platform selling digital goods and services. They, plus 100 multinationals, have large-scale research and development operations in Ukraine including Siemens, Samsung, Oracle, Cisco, SoftServe, Procter & Gamble and Bioclinica.

In June, the Canadian government is hosting a major conference in Toronto that will showcase Ukrainian products and businesses in order to connect them with high-level Canadian corporations and businessmen. The conference is timely because we are on the eve of completion of the Canada and Ukraine Free Trade Agreement, approved in principle last summer.

Ukraine's grassroots transformation of education.

Bringing innovation into the education space in Ukraine can and will have a big impact on the quality and scale of the country's overall development. It's one of the greatest challenges in a developing country, but it is also one of its biggest opportunities to succeed faster.

Pro.Svit aims to strengthen Ukraine’s society by building the capacity of teachers. One of the ways that it does this is by providing educators with a basic understanding of project management, which enables ordinary teachers to turn their innovative ideas into real-life projects that make a difference in the classroom.

Keep up the good work Centre of Innovational Education "Pro.Svit"

Despite a cease fire agreement, the war in the Eastern Ukraine goes on. We all are tired, but Ukrainian defenders need our continuous support. MaydanSF just supported this important fundraiser initiated by one active Bay Area local, Olga Kelley: A tactical scope for our Marines and binoculars for our Intelligence Units and Special Forces in the war zone in the eastern part of Ukraine – Zajtsevo, Shirokino, Avdiivka and Pisky.

MaydanSF shared UNWLA San Jose Branch's event.May 30th, 2016 at 6:42am
Local Events.
Join UNWLA San Jose Branch for their Annual Summer Picnic and Fundraiser. July 16th, 11am, Portal Park, Cupertino

The UNWLA Chapter #107 in San Jose was founded by the wave of Americans of Ukrainian descent in times when Silicon Valley was becoming a hub for large industrial corporations and hi-tech firms. Abundant business and professional opportunities brought many young engineers into the region, Ukrainian-Americans were among the pioneers. The UNWLA chapter was founded by wives of those specialists, such as Vira Zubrycki, Halyna Marenin, Stephanie Rockocha, among others.

Ukraine was that time under the Soviet Union, and the Soviet authorities did not encourage any connections with Americans. The chapter had sent money to support Ukrainian dissidents and human rights activists in the Soviet Union and appealed to US President Jimmy Carter to help in releasing arrested in the Soviet Union Ukrainian dissidents. They also supported the Ukrainian artists who lived in America and Europe and organized their exhibitions, chapters' members were representing Ukrainian culture to the local public. Also the chapter on its own initiative introduced scholarships for university studies of young Ukrainians -in addition to the fellowships that were distributed through the UNWLA headquarters in New York Unwla Branchnyc.

From 2013 and until now the chapter, named after Lesya Ukrainka, is taking care of victims on the Maidan and the east of Ukraine. The members send packages of clothes and other things, money to families of dead and wounded in Ukraine, as well as to the orphaned children. Unity, the ability to solve complex situations and even conflicts – tradition that the chapter has carried out from the beginning until now - has provided a long and fruitful life to the chapter. But UNWLA Chapter #107 still needs fresh blood. The more women join the chapter, the richer the local Ukrainian community becomes. Attend the event to learn more and consider joining this prominent organization.

Intro provided by UNWLA San Jose Branch member Nadezhda Banchik
