Case: Donating computers

At Netcompany, we always seek to find meaningful purposes for the use of any outdated equipment that may still be of use to others. This makes sense socially as well as environmentally.

When Buttershaw Bec school in Leeds put out a call for help, Netcompany UK did not hesitate to respond to their call. The Buttershaw Bec school has a large number of children from disadvantaged backgrounds without access to computers at home, and when educational facilities were shut down due to COVID-19, this naturally posed great challenges to the students. Netcompany’s donation of computers to the school gave several students the means to continue their learning and development as uninterrupted as possible, while at the same time facilitating responsible waste management.

Netcompany UK also donated several computers to the organisation The Connection, which is a charity organisation that helps the homeless move away from, and stay off the streets of London. The computers are used to train the organisation’s employees and its service users in applying for government grants, housing and employment opportunities.

Another initiative that Netcompany has sup-ported with the donation of computers is the ReDi school initiative in Denmark that offers free IT courses to women with a different ethnical background to Danish. The objective of the initiative is to create digital empowerment for women through the acquisition of digital skills and by supporting women in accessing a social and professional network.
