In 2019, at the initiative of Anna, Kyivstar launched an educational project and the first mobile literacy school for the older generation "Smartphone for Parents". The initiative aims are to bridge the digital and, as a result, emotional gap between generations, as well as to break age-old stereotypes about technology in society.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do business and communicate, so the committee's main goal in 2020 was to help the members to adapt to the new reality. These events became a platform for sharing experiences and for building new partnerships, where CSR, staff and PR experts have shared their best practices to support business and communities.
