NEXSTAND EU celebrate a new partnership with the Turing Trust – 1 for 1 Tech for children in Africa
NEXSTAND EU, London based remote working accessory company engages in a charity partnership with the Turing Trust. Helping to fund ICT education and resources for underprivileged children in Sub Saharan Africa.
Alan Turing was renowned for his work breaking the Enigma codes in WW2 and is recognised as a founder of computer science, helping to develop the earliest computers. James Turing is the great-nephew of Alan and a founder of the Turing Trust.
The Turing Trust supports education in sub-Saharan Africa by reusing computers and improving teacher training using ICT. The Trust has reused over 5,700 PCs enabling more than 55,000 students to gain a digital education.
NEXSTAND EU aims to support The Turing Trust by donating a percentage of profits as well as a further one-for-one donation whereby every remote work set sold will supply a mouse alongside a computer.
”We’re always looking for new ways to have people’s back and with this new partnership, we are delighted to be able to extend our reach to help the most disadvantaged young people in Sub- Saharan Africa. We’re passionate that they too should have access to ICT education. On a personal note, the organisation’s work is close to my heart due to my families history with Malawi, I’d love to see the people of Malawi and other sub-Saharan African countries reap the benefits of the digital age.” Samantha Eaton, CEO of NEXSTAND EU.
”With the support of fantastic, socially-minded companies such as NEXSTAND EU we will be able to realise our vision where every school had adequate IT resources to empower students with these vital skills.” James Turing
