Recognizing the power of stories to engender a love of reading and strengthen family bonds, Ukraine-born, Amsterdam-based tech entrepreneur Andriy Shmyhelskyy created Better Time Stories, an app that allows Ukrainian fathers to record stories for their kids.

Aimed at parents of children ages five to seven, the app contains a QR code that, when scanned or tapped, opens an app with an audiobook version of a book. A link allows fathers to record their own audio version so the child can listen to their voice before bed.

The app is funded by donations that can be made here.
