DS Group are absolutely delighted to have established our first partnership with a charity and it’s with an incredible one too: Community TechAid.
Ultimately, they are closing the digital divide by providing technology and skills to our communities, whilst recycling, reusing and repairing e-waste.
They want to provide our community with the three fundamentals of digital inclusion: access to technology, connectivity and the knowledge and skills to access the online world.
They gather donated laptops, tablets and smartphones, wipe the data and refurbish them, and return them to use by giving them to those in need. They partner with local organisations to identify those in need, through a referral system.
Both DS Group and Community TechAid revolve around the tech-industry, and more specifically we share a passion for Tech For Good. It is within this alignment where our values, vision and mission reflect each other's and demonstrates a clear purpose for our collaboration in closing the digital divide.
