A SocialBox.Biz blog post update by Heather, 31 July 2020
C-19 has had a major impact on our partnering organisations. For instance, C4WS Homeleness Charity says they were down to their last device when SocialBox.Biz delivered iPads for their clients. Through the Laptops for the Homeless Initiative, we continue to give to those in need.
Ana is now able to join our new online Jobs Club programme and continue plans for developing her new business
At C4WS, a client named Laura living in temporary hostel accommodations received an iPad and is using it to find a job.
Another client there, Mohamed, is using his tablet to take English classes and write his first CV.
A third client at C4WS, Abraham, has been in temporary hostel accommodations since the lockdown began and is using a donated tablet to take courses and stay busy.
Caritas Anchor House, anther homelessness charity partner recently received a batch of laptops at their accommodation facility via the Laptops for the Homeless Initiative.
One resident said, “Keeping in touch with my friends and family and being able to support each other emotionally during this time is really important, and this laptop allows me to do that. Thank you.”
Another resident said, “This laptop is an outlet for me to learn and keep up with the ever-evolving technology sector. Thank you for nurturing my creative side.”
“Keeping in touch with my friends and family and being able to support each other emotionally during this time is really important, and this laptop allows me to do that. Particularly as I am waiting for a hip replacement and so am not very mobile, and my mother has recently died,” said another client.
When organisations release used but still functioning technology to SocialBox.Biz, it goes to help refugees, underprivileged youth, and those stricken with homelessness.
