SOS Children’s Villages are happy to announce the first regional campaign called IT4SOS with a simple purpose, fundraising for children without parental care and children in need. SOS Children’s Villages in Armenia is joining this great initiative!

How can IT companies join the project?

With good will, open heart and wish to help and support the most vulnerable.

How do the employees of the IT companies start participating?

  1. They need to download the app Challenger on their phones.
  2. They need to register with their company email.
  3. Challenger registers every kilometer with the help of existing services: GoogleFit, Apple Health and Strava. The user would need to turn on Strava before they start using the bicycle. All other activities Challenger will register on the back end, so there is no need to do anything else.
  4. The employees can also join in the existing challenges of the app and win badges for their personal achievement

Our goal is to raise AMD 19.000.000 (Euro 46.000) to support the annual Family House Budgets for 3 SOS Families, 2 in Kotayk Children’s Village and 1 in Ijevan Children’s Village.

The goal of IT4SOS campaign is to help the children without parents or parental care that are supported by SOS Children Villages in Armenia. We are  passionate about the development of each child and their success in life equally as IT companies are committed to their employees. So, we are a perfect match.
