More about the supported projects:
1. Launching the Ba&Di Freelance social entrepreneurship web-platform (marketplace)
Sum — 51 650 UAH
Loneliness, irrelevance, depressed mood are the companions of most elderly people. On the other hand, modern parents raising preschool- and school-age children lack time or opportunity for proper parenting and communication with their kids.
The issue could be solved by the creation of a platform for freelancer grandparents to help the parents with their day-to-day affairs. Namely, picking up children from school, taking them to sports, helping with their homework, cooking, etc.
The grant program will cover the cost of development of a web platform, creation of photo and video content about service providers, and payments for the project manager.
2. Space Planning of a Disc-Golf Park in the Shevchenko Park
Sum — 54 000 UAH
Initiators plan to install 9 fixed disc-golf baskets in Shevchenko Park. Disc-golf promotes a healthy lifestyle, trains endurance, coordination, and accuracy.
For many people suffering from injuries or sedentary lifestyle, disc-golf is an opportunity to stay fit.
Ukraine’s first-ever fixed-site disc-golf park will complement the infrastructure of Ivano-Frankivsk and attract a large number of tourists to various tournaments and competitions.
Funding from Urban Space 100 will cover the cost of fixed baskets for disc-golf.
