reThink computers aid sustainability in Zimbabwe
In January, Nhake African Worldwide Trust in Zimbabwe received 10 reThink computers donated by DCC. The computers will be installed in Sekwi Rural Resource Center, which is a local meeting point for young people where they will participate in further developing the living conditions in the surrounding rural villages.
reThink makes a difference.
Nhakas Friends, a Danish NGO who supports NAW, assisted in the practicalities regarding transport and such. To put it briefly, Bob Dzere is the main instigator behind the project. His goal is to create sustainable initiatives, like vegetable gardens,
which both supply food for the local people as well as generate income, when the crops are sold at the local market.
Why donate computers to Zimbabwe?
“The values we have in DCC, such as social responsibility and sustainability, are well represented in the project in Zimbabwe. At NAW they focus on creating a sustainable development in the village, and I think it is fantastic, if 10 computers can support
that development” says Purchasing Director at DCC, Tommy Danielsson.
As mentioned before, the 10 reThink computers will be installed in the local resource center and connected to the internet. Afterwards, people will be guided in the use of the computers. The computers will come in handy in numerous other projects which
the resource center has in line. The project span from AIDS/HIV awareness programs, environmental programs to educational support and other initiatives, which evolve the local community.
On top of that, the reThink computers will make it even easier for NAW to spread the word of all the exiting initiatives in the area.
