Initiated by the Fondation Follereau in 2011, Malian, Benin and Togolese students and pupils are being granted access to software tools and general IT equipment thanks to this program in partnership with local associations and charities.

The IT equipment, donated by Docler Holding, still in perfect condition, will be distributed in six schools in Togo. Both, the Fondation Follereau and local partners chose benefiting schools according to strict standards including energy power.

Jean Hilger, President of Fondation Follereau, stated:

“Collecting computer equipment from Luxembourg companies and associations was already an important milestone for the foundation. As this project is sustainable, donated IT equipment needs to be in perfect condition to ensure a long-term use. Another challenge of this project lies in shipping this equipment. Thanks to the help of companies like Docler Holding, we can fasten and efficiently achieve the process. ‘Mind the gap’ changes life of people.”

The Fondation Follereau is active in nine African countries and coordinates more than 35 different projects per year.

Thanks to this donation, Docler Holding will provide 6 schools and 840 pupils in Togo. By 2022, up to 3,400 pupils will benefit from this donation. In addition, Docler Holding has offered a donation in cash of 2,500 euros to support shipping costs.

Giving access to technologies and IT through education as a first priority is part of Docler Holding’s long-term strategy. This project will provide kids and young adults with a platform to develop their skills and creativity.

In January this year, Docler Holding, awarded for its outstanding contribution to ICT in Luxembourg in 2017, offered 50 servers to the Lycée Technique of Esch-sur-Alzette (LTE).
