During the Covid-19 pandemic which led to a massive closure of face-to-face activities of educational institutions in Georgia, Feedc’s team took the initiative to build a platform for distance learning and offer it to all public schools completely free of charge. By working together with the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of Georgia, Feedc was able to provide a safe, fast, easy to use and accessible distance learning platform - FeedcEdu. For months FeedcEdu and its team onboarded and served tens of thousands of students, teachers and parents. Students were able to attend online classes, send messages, upload assignments, share and download files. The platform was especially useful in regions where students didn’t have access to necessary tools for distance learning. The Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of Georgia considered the move of Feedc to create a free platform for distance learning as an exemplary precedent of social responsibility and noted that given the current situation, such cooperation between the state and the private sector is very important.

Feedc organized numerous activities and events aimed to involve students and local communities. Feedc held a presentation for students at the University of Business and Technology. A memorandum of understanding was signed with the university to enable students to join Feedc’s growing team.

One of Feedc’s objectives is to empower local communities in order to help get local citizens more involved in the events affecting their lives. Two challenge grants organized and funded by Feedc served to inspire and raise a new generation of citizen journalists in Georgia with the help of Feedc’s platform.
