Campania "It simply came to our notice then”, Organized by ECOTIC, with the support of APDETIC and Rotary Club Bucharest Continental gave new life to IT equipment through donations to disadvantaged communities.

The campaign, now in its second edition, took place between June 5 and October 26, 2018 and was addressed to all entities that wanted to hand over IT equipment for reuse, as an important act of social responsibility. The donated IT equipment was reconditioned and went to the NGOs and educational units from Nepos, Bistrița Năsăud County, Iași and Chiajna, Ilfov County, and which do not benefit from such facilities.

"Our initiative has a dual purpose: to facilitate access to IT technology for disadvantaged groups, in order to develop the digital skills needed in their careers, and also to contribute to more efficient use of resources, in line with the principles of the circular economy.", Said Valentin Negoiță, President of ECOTIC.

The beneficiaries who enjoy the donation of IT equipment at the end of this edition are:

  • Nepos School, Bistrița Năsăud County
  • Glasul Vieții Association from Iași, Iași County
  • Mia's Children Association from Chiajna, Ilfov County

The first equipment has already arrived at the school in the village of Nepos, the students will soon enjoy a well-equipped computer laboratory. The following equipment will reach the Voice of Life Association and Mia's Children, in both cases they will be used by students and young people in the educational process.

The director of the Feldru Technological High School, Călin Sbîrciu, the unit to which the school from Nepos belongs, was pleased with the gesture of humanity and declared: "Now, students in Nepos have a fully equipped computer room, thanks to this generous initiative. It is important for the business community to appreciate education. In this way, I congratulate the organizers for the initiative and we thank them for the donation ".
