On November 29, 2018, our Ukrainian partner – GURT Resource Center, for the second time already, was voted The Best Capacity Building Provider by the participants of the 7th Civil Society Capacity Building Forum. This year, the Forum hosted over 2,000 representatives of Ukrainian CSOs.
During the event, GURT representatives talked about the services provided by the Technology Assistance Program for Ukrainian Non-Profit Organizations (TechSoup Ukraine). To make the presentation more interactive and memorable, GURT launched an unprecedented Digital Gender Battle.
Female and male Forum visitors, aged 18 to 50 years old, were able to check whose brain activity was more powerful at the neural level. Altogether 55 couples joined the competition. In the end, female representatives of Ukrainian CSOs won with a score of 31:24.
Moreover, during the Forum, GURT introduced a new TechSoup Ukraine landing page called “The Home of Digital Transformation”. Besides links to the TechSoup donation programs, it offers additionalTechSoup Ukraine services, such as digital security audits, ICT training, cloud solutions, etc.
Additionally, GURT interviewed the participants of the Forum, with the aim to find out what ICT-related needs the Ukrainian NGOs might have. The results of the study will be presented by the end of 2018.
