EON Learn for Life is making the donation in light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
IRVINE, CA, March 15, 2022 – EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, has pledged 57,000 licenses (worth a value of up to $150M) for Ukrainian refugees through its charity branch, Learn for Life. When EON Reality saw the humanitarian catastrophe affecting Ukraine, the company wanted to provide immediate and sustained aid to its displaced student population. Beyond contributions to the Red Cross from its founder and employees, EON Reality knows that helping refugee children with their education is crucial, especially now that they are abroad.
With these 57,000 licenses, which will come at no cost to Ukrainian refugees, EON Reality can create and conduct support for a new branch of the knowledge metaverse. Knowledge is a human right, and EON Reality believes it should be available, accessible, and affordable for everyone to create some semblance of normalcy in these desperate and tragic times. The donation will be distributed in the countries where refugees currently live, including Romania and Hungary.
In a moving and insightful open letter earlier this month, EON Reality Chairman and Founder Dan Lejerskar, expounded on the importance of stopping the aggression from Russia. “We must find a way to put a stop to missiles hitting people’s homes and end the everyday terror Ukrainian women and children have to live with at this very moment. I also firmly support Ukraine’s sovereignty as an independent nation, its people’s right to choose their own destiny, free from outside interference.”
Additionally, Lejerskar pushed for global peace and applauded the bravery of Russian scientists who’ve signed a letter against war with Ukraine. While he’s understandably worried about the risk of a nuclear conflict, he ended his letter hopefully, citing China’s willingness to mediate with Ukraine and Russia. For now, EON Reality hopes that these licenses for Ukrainian refugees will ease their burden in at least one aspect of their lives.
