Abakus is the foundation of the founders of Avast, Pavel Baudiš and Eduard Kučera, that brings tools for positive change to Czech society.
We take a complex look at problems and challenges, trying to find solutions together with experts who provide us with important insights into their fields.
Palliative care in residential care facilities for the elderly
Introducing palliative care will make nursing homes a true home for their clients until the very end.
We finance a comprehensive two-year programme with the ambition to create, by 2023, a network of nursing homes able to provide holistic care for people at the end of life in an environment they are familiar with, and to further share the acquired know-how.
Supporting experienced palliative care professionals
The provision of palliative care depends on experts from various professional backgrounds who have decided to focus on end-of-life care, raise awareness about the field and make it flourish.
We finance individual scholarships for 18 experienced medical practitioners, psychologists, researchers, and chaplains, as well as hospice and nursing home directors, accompanied by a joint programme. The scholarship programme aims at fostering personal development of these professionals in order to enhance the progress of the entire field.

„The end of life in a home environment should be available to all. Even to those who have had to leave their original homes.“
Pilot phase of introducing the community service
Homesharing gives families of children with a disability an opportunity to share the care and get some rest, while the carers get to spend their time in a meaningful way.
After the pilot phase of introducing homesharing in two organizations and regions, the aim is to extend the concept of community care sharing to other regions and bring it to families of children with different kinds of disabilities. The call offers financial support as well as a comprehensive accompanying programme.
For organizations that support families of children with a disability
As far as children’s needs are concerned, it’s their parents who are the biggest experts. Together with them, we help formulate the needs and advocate their fulfilment.
We finance a two-year education programme that aims at enhancing the advocacy skills of organizations advocating parents’ rights. We strongly believe that this knowledge will help them formulate the needs and advocate for them in the right place at the right time.

Education for the 21st century
The education system should reflect the fast-changing world of today. Only then can the new generation be successful.
We have joined forces with other organizations and foundations to establish the Educhange Foundation, with the ambition to serve as a platform of representatives of the private, non-profit and state sector and support systemic change in education.
