"Money should never stop a dedicated person from learning new skills.

This is the perfect platform that brings together those who want to learn programming and those who want to help them achieve that. Had this platform existed when I started programming, I would have applied a gazillion times."

- Kaarel Reinhard (17), SafeSack co-founder

Huge thanks to the PandaDoc co-founder Mikita Mikado who was the inspiration behind this idea and the original creator of this framework. In 2018 July Mikita started the #войтивайти initiative and has been giving out stipends to curious and passionate individuals across Belarus. Mikita rocks!
