In November 2021, Gleematic is supporting SGTech‘s most recent #CSR project, Tech4Community. It was a collection drive for pre-used laptops to be refurbished and given to school-going children of low-income families and seniors in the East Coast.
This year’s Tech4Community is in support of the East Coast GRC’s “Digital Access for All” initiative. This project aims to raise awareness of e-waste in Singapore and rally the community to take action and minimize it.
SGTech members rallied strongly, contributing a total of 190 laptops and $25,300 in cash. The cash donations will be used to purchase replacement parts, as well as more refurbished laptops to meet the expected needs of children entering Primary 1 in the new year.
“SGTech is happy to support East Coast GRC’s “Digital Access for All” initiative through our Tech4Community CSR program this year. Contributing to this initiative covers two areas that are important to us. Firstly, doing our part to give back to society and make sure no one is left behind as we digitalize. Secondly, refurbishing old laptops and giving them a new lease of life aligns with eRevival Square, our community outreach initiative, which aims to raise awareness of e-waste in Singapore and rally the community to take action and minimize it. We are grateful to SGTech members for their support,” said Yean Cheong, Executive Director of SGTech.
Thank you SGTech for organizing Tech4Community and giving us a chance to contribute. Hope our support can make digital access more inclusive.
