Out of the Pandemic was a community built from scratch within Celfocus, during the pandemic, by a group of people eager to help those in need. After weeks of interactions and field research, the community voted to support remote teaching challenges and partner with a trusted project that has built a working and multidisciplinary structure.
Student Keep is a project under the #tech4COVID19 movement that works to fight inequality in access to education by identifying keepers that will donate materials (computers, tablets, internet, mouse, keyboard) to students without access to them and by gathering volunteers, who will perform the necessary technical interventions in such equipment.
How has Celfocus helped?
Rolling up our sleeves
Several colleagues have signed up to support the project in technical interventions (computer formatting, installations etc.). This help will speed up access to equipment for those in need.
Giving unused equipment another life
Simultaneously, colleagues have used the project’s website to register their unused equipment to be distributed to those in need.
Celfocus will also be supporting Student Keep by funding the purchase of additional equipment for as many students as possible.
