Bengalure: Computer make Dell Inc along with National Geographic explorer, Mike Libecki provided technology support to underpriveleged children of Jhamtse Gatsal Children’s Community in the remote village of Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh.
The Community has about 90 underprivileged children and the objective of the partnership was to provide better lives to these children by helping them realize their potential to the fullest.
Tawang, the smallest district in the state, does not have access to some of the latest technologies to help them in their day-to-day lives and boost the quality of education.
“Mike and his team, along with the Dell employees set up the internet and installed 20 new laptops and printers,” Dell said in a statement.
Teachers and students were also trained on how to use computers to help streamline their education and ultimately create an opportunity and a better quality of life in the years to come.
To power these computers and keep them working throughout the year, solar panels, lights, and solar generators were given, which were installed personally by the team to ensure proper functioning of the machines in the long-run.
Dell India Vice President and CSR champion Rajeev Kapoor said: “Dell’s purpose as a company is to drive human progress through technology. That would mean investing in innovation that reduces environmental impact and ensuring progress of underserved communities.”
The company firmly believes that through the participation of team members in supporting non-profits, the impact of social initiatives and partnerships becomes even greater. “Hence we encourage everyone at Dell to be a part of such efforts,” he added.
“We specialize in going to the most remote communities that require help with educational components like computers and internet, sustainable necessities like solar energy,” said Libecki who has his own NGO called The Joyineering Fund.
This is Libecki’s fourth and biggest humanitarian project partnering with Dell. In the past, he has installed solar panels, generators, and laptops in Peru, Nepal and Tanzania.
