We face a new challenge as due to the Coronavirus crisis, almost overnight, schools in Indonesia had to transfer their regular classes into a virtual environment. Students and teachers lack access to the necessary technology, smartphones, laptops, PCs and internet access.
Vega 1892 IT equipment to the rescue. We take technology and internet access for granted, for most of us it’s part of our lives, but we tend to forget it is still a privilege in most rural areas in Indonesia and East Timor.
Companies and schools change laptops, projectors and network equipment on a regular basis. Donating that retired equipment to needy schools and vocational training centres gives students in poor areas a better chance in life. We refurbish that equipment with new batteries and software to create computer labs. When equipment breaks we collect it for repair or proper disposal.
