Solidarity with our students: how to contribute to ensure they have laptops for working from home


Date:01/04/2020


Computers aren’t just for businesses; today, they are an indispensable tool for students of all ages. With the Covid-19 outbreak, online classes and school work mean these young people need a computer to complete their tasks and continue their education. Unfortunately, not all of them have access to a computer at home.

 

With the help of Digital for Youth.be (founded by DNS Belgium & Close the Gap), Belgian students can be provided with usable laptops, to prevent them from falling behind in their learning. Every day counts.

 

Beltug is a co-founder of DNS Belgium, and has a long-term relationship with ‘Close the Gap’.  We warmly support this initiative and hope many young people receive the encouragement they need during this crisis.

 

On the Digital for Youth website, you can find more details about this urgent situation.

 

How can you help?

  • Have your company donate old/used laptops.
    • Register via donations@close-the-gap.org
    • For donations of 20 or more working laptops, we can collect them
    • These laptops are professionally and securely prepared for reuse (data removal, any repairs and upgrade needed, installation of Microsoft OS and cleaning)
  • Make a financial contribution
    • You can make a gift into account BE10 0000 0000 0404 of the King Baudouin Foundation. If possible, please use the structured code *** 128/3229/00092 *** or mention 'L83229: Digital4Youth'
