From IT specialist to St. Nicholas: example of IT company Vector Software

For St. Nicholas’ Day, IT company Vector Software and its employees prepared gifts for children from the Korostyshiv special boarding school in the Zhytomyr region. The company helps children with special needs who live in this orphanage for the third time this year. 

Vector Software is an international IT software development company founded by Ukrainian and Norwegian professionals that brings together the best intellectuals around the world to create meaningful and effective solutions.

A special boarding school has been operating for children with intellectual disabilities since 1954. It is an educational, correctional and developmental educational institution that provides pupils with general education according to special curricula, programs, and textbooks combined with long-term rehabilitation and correction of psychophysical developmental disabilities. Currently, there are 94 children in the school.

How did children’s dreams come true?

All children are born with an incredible inner world, filled with fantasies and dreams. And, of course, the most desirable must come true. 

St. Nicholas presented a Smart TV for first-grade students so that they could develop with the help of audio and video materials. Floorball sticks and a helmet for a defender, so that the children can play on the playground of the local school because now they have sports equipment to do it.

He also brought toys for development, because children with special needs have individual developmental characteristics so that the same toy can calm one child, and on the contrary, make another child angry. Special toys are provided to such children for mental development, logical thinking, attention, memory, and fine motor skills. And, of course, St. Nicholas did not leave the children without sweets.

The war taught everyone to help others: to donate, if possible, to support each other, to provide shelter to those, who need it so much. Doing good not only gives us inner strength but also brings happiness, right? In this way, we learn to care for our neighbours and understand that many people around us need our help.

In this situation, 94 children, who currently live in a boarding school, needed support. They are not orphans because they have guardians. Usually, these are distant relatives or elderly grandparents. However, can they give them the attention and care that every child in the world deserves?

We not only change the world around us by doing good, but also create positive relationships that return to us in the form of support and help. Perhaps this story will inspire you to do good. Anyone who wants to help may find an orphanage or boarding school in their city and become St. Nicholas for children. Help can be different: donate things, transfer the cost to a charity fund, or become a volunteer.
