The transport and logistics industry continues to fight daily challenges during the coronavirus pandemic, and this includes keeping essential transport moving.
The rapid spread of the coronavirus forced schools to shut down and move education online within days. Adapting so quickly is a big challenge to many institutions and families without the required resources. Distance education and online learning not only requires a new mindset from teachers and students, but also technology, platforms and of course infrastructure.
Unfortunately, not all young people have access to a computer at home, even though it is now more necessary than ever before.
Digital For Youth (founded by DNS Belgium & Close the Gap) decided to help and launched a campaign to collect used but functional laptops for young people who do not have access to a computer. The motivation behind the initiative was to prevent these youngsters from falling behind in their education. This project, supported by the Belgian government, became a great success and in total 10.000 laptops were donated and refurbished at CTG Circular.
DSV Belgium was very happy to support the delivery of these laptops to the secondary schools. As from this week the laptops are on their way to the students who will now be able to continue their education online.
