August 12, 2020
Sims Lifecycle Services (SLS), a global leader in IT asset disposition (ITAD) and electronics recycling, donated 30 laptops to children in need through the Hemmersbach’s Kids Family – Direct Action program. This donation makes it possible for children in Poland who are living in orphanages, to access online activities and educational resources for distance learning programs.
The Hemmersbach Kids Family in Poland works with 71 childcare facilities providing all housing, essentials, and academic resources to support their educational and professional development. In India, Hemmersbach Kids Family similarly engages with orphanages and provides additional health and educational access and financial support. Together, these programs make it possible for 1,326 children to receive the help they need each day; 104 take part in the educational programs and 430 children benefit from the biofeedback therapy.
“Sims Lifecycle Services is committed to keeping resources in use for as long as possible,” stated Jelle Slenters, Head of Business Development, EMEA for SLS. “I am pleased that we were able to accommodate donating these units to the orphanages, because it not only supports circular efforts, but it also offers the benefit of enabling these children to have the access they need to continue their education from a distance.”
The circular economy initiatives at SLS help clients keep resources in use for as long as possible; extract maximum value from those resources while in use; and then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of their useful life. To learn more visit https://www.simslifecycle.com.
