A regional team linked with the University of Waterloo was named among the winners of the global Technovation Girls app development competition.
Aiuto Solutions was awarded the first-ever COVID Economic Recovery prize, recognizing their work to develop an app to connect donors and charities. The app provides a means of forging stronger relationships in the not-for-profit and NGO sectors. The name Aiuto means ‘help’ in Italian.

SDGs have categories for human health and well-being, climate action, poverty reduction and gender equality.
