How can IT companies get involved in the project with a cause?

With enthusiasm, heart, and desire to help in the care of children and youth, which our organization has been caring for in Bulgaria for 32 years.

How do participating companies help?

  • The teams of the IT community in Bulgaria contribute to the protection of the environment through a healthier and more active lifestyle – measured through the “Challenger” app – reduction of harmful carbon emissions through the physical activity of each employee through walking, running, and cycling.
  • And the companies involved in this project – stimulating the physical activity, tone, and health of their employees, at the same time supporting the social cause of SOS Children’s Villages Bulgaria – an investment in a full and loving childhood and growth of children and young people left without parental care.

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. The employees can also join in the existing challenges of the app and win badges for their personal achievement.

Our goal is to raise BGN 60,000, which will partially ensure the operation of the SOS family homes in Sofia, Veliko Tarnovo, Gabrovo – for young people in SOS care.
