Activities Undertaken By Moldcell Foundation
Moldcell Foundation was launched together with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Association of Companies from Creative Industries in Moldova for Competitiveness Project of Moldova funded by USAID and Moldcell Foundation, regarding the extension of the digital education opportunities in the Creative Industries Center ARTCOR.
With the support of Moldcell Foundation, ARTCOR School will bring new opportunities of educational courses, workshops, and open lessons in online and offline format for the young people who want to try themselves in the creative profession in interior design, design and sound production, music, podcasting, illustrations, comics, 3D animation, storytelling, etc. Creative professions, as well as the ones related to technologies and freelancing, are at the top of the most desired professions by youth.
The year 2020 continues to be the moment when all the communities should get mobilized in order to support the medical systems of the countries. Moldcell helped the medical system of Moldova in the areas it needed most: 10 lung ventilation equipment pieces for 8 hospitals from Moldova, 5000 protection suits for medical staff, free minutes and Internet, free daily hot lunches that continue being offered for the doctors, who are the heroes of our times.
Internet being an indispensable part of our lives is still not known by the elderly population of the country. This was the reason why back in 2015 Moldcell started a project meant to teach the elderly population how to use the Internet and smartphones. Tens of rural areas have been visited, thousands of grannies trained. The project has evolved now into the #LikefromGrannies project encouraging teenagers to teach their grandparents to use digital services, social networks, and Internet.
#Internet Without Worries
This was an educational project about online safety for kids and parents launched by Moldcell back in 2018. Moldcell offers the Internet and we do care for the way it is used by our kids. The Internet offers a lot of advantages, at the same time there are risks about which parents should know, in order to protect kids. Educational sessions for parents about data privacy, informational security, cyberbullying, psychological advice. And play-based sessions with kids teaching them the rules of safe Internet. During the pandemics, weekly sessions were held online on the Moldcell Facebook page.
