The educational project of the Business Camp was completed

On August 18, 2023, the Business Camp, an interactive educational project, which lasted five days at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, ended. Project participants were children of defenders of Ukraine, aged 11-16.

The program of the five-day camp was rich. In particular, during the lectures, the participants learned several eye-catching topics, including the issues of personal finance, the financial system and financial services, insurance, financial security, etc. In addition to lectures and practical classes, the participants also visited many interesting and useful locations. So, the children visited the head office of JSC “Oschadbank” and the Soldier’s House, took part in a master class from the Lviv gingerbread gallery “Yurashka”, met with the military and even took part in a first aid training conducted for them by the Maltese Aid Service. The children were also quite interested in the meeting with the representative of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, the training on mine danger and, of course, the excursion to the fire station.

The camp ended with a presentation and discussion of the projects that the six teams prepared during the academic week. Despite the young age of their developers, all projects turned out to be very interesting and relevant.

During the closing part of the project, its participants were congratulated by Vice-Rector for Research, Teaching and Public Issues and Development Volodymyr Kachmar, Vice-Rector for Research, Teaching and International Cooperation Serhiy Riznyk, Head of the Department of Accounting and Auditing of the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, deputy of the Lviv Regional Council Yuriy Radelytskyi, chief specialist of the Ministry of Veterans Affairs of Ukraine in Lviv Region Artem Bagen and deputy head of the Primary Trade Union Organization of University Employees Yuliya Hrytsenko. Certificates and commemorative gifts were presented to all who took part in the educational initiative.
