We are delighted to announce that our latest shipment of IT equipment has arrived in Malawi: Our new partner Covestro donated 500 refurbished laptops as part of a long term engagement. These PCs will be used to give children access to IT education and a wealth of offline resources with our eLibrary to support their learning. “Through donations like this we hope to empower and provide opportunities for people all around the world, by supporting education initiatives – particularly within the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.”, says Sharon Sørensen, Head of Global Partnerships and Donations Management at Covestro. But these laptops are not only used by the students themselves, they will also empower the teachers to foster education in completely new ways.
As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of premium polymers, Covestro has a key position in the value chain of many industries. Covestro likes to use this position to push sustainability and innovation further together with their workforce of 16,000 employees, customers, partners and bright young talents around the world. Covestro and the Turing Trust met at the Tech Justice Forum hosted by the University of Edinburgh and Practical Action, where they discovered common ground on their dedication to the circular economy and promoting a clean and sustainable global future.
We look forward to welcoming a team from Covestro to Malawi, where their staff will be able to see for themselves the remarkable impact their donation is having on children in the Mzuzu region. Once more, we’d like to thank Covestro for their fantastic donation and look forward to working with them again in the future.
