What does The Turing Trust do?
The Turing Trust was set up in 2009 in honour of Alan Turing by his family. Today we honour his remarkable legacy by providing quality IT resources and training to schools in sub-Saharan Africa. Our operations in the UK, based in our Edinburgh workshop, provide valuable training & volunteering opportunities whilst reducing waste and contributing to an environmentally friendly society.
Our vision is a world with technology-enabled education for all.
Our mission is to empower disadvantaged communities using information technology-enabled learning.
Our values inform our decisions in carrying out our mission.
We believe in creating a world of equal opportunity. We must take an equitable approach in everything we do to help overcome structural inequalities. We will always go the extra mile in helping those most in need to overcome whatever obstacles they face.
For us, honouring Alan Turing’s legacy means embracing diversity in all its forms. We believe that everyone should be valued as an individual and can be a significant force for change, regardless of visible and invisible differences.
The world currently faces the immense challenge of climate change. Therefore, we must constantly strive to lead the fight against global warming and sustainability must be at the heart of everything we do.
We believe that continually monitoring our work is critical to ensure that we are making a positive impact. In this way we must hold ourselves accountable and strive to increase the quality and quantity of our work until everyone can equally benefit from digital technologies.
