Farnell & Active PCB Solutions donate Raspberry Pis to schools

Farnell, in partnership with Active-PCB Solutions, recognises the importance of investing in the future of the Electronic Engineering and Computer Science industry. To this end, Farnell has donated a batch of the very latest, hot-off-the press, third generation Raspberry Pi mini computers to a local, Reading-based senior school for use by Computer Science teachers and students alike.

Head of ICT and Computing said: "It's very generous of Farnell to donate this equipment. In doing so they are investing in the computer scientists of the future. Each Raspberry Pi is a fully functioning personal computer and as powerful as a standard desktop."

"It’s incredible that this technology is now available. It's a great training tool. These systems will enable us to teach students vital programming skills and help them develop an understanding of how every aspect of a computer works. Hopefully we will encourage a new generation of computer scientists. With built-in wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, the Raspberry Pi’s have no need for physical connections, so are very flexible and easy to use."

Raspberry Pi's were first launched in early 2012. Four years on, eight million of the credit card-sized mini computers have been sold.

Leigh-Anne Swire-Thompson, Director of Active-PCB Solutions,added: "It is great that Farnell are supporting senior school education by donating this equipment. It shows an awareness in the electronics industry of the need to encourage an interest in electronic engineering and computer science at the grass roots stage."

UK Business Shows Its Caring Side With Charitable Donation To Orphanage

Electronic Manufacturing Services provider (EMS), Active-PCB Solutions, is relishing in the positive influence its recent R4500 donation has made to the 'Mother of Peace Community – Illovo'; a charitable organisation that cares for South Africa's most vulnerable children.

Donated during 'Mandela Week' through the 'Telkom Foundation', Active PCB-Solutions contribution went towards purchasing a desperately needed wish list of items supplied to Telkom by the Mother of Peace orphanage. Telkom volunteers renovated a building to create a brand new classroom at the orphanage and unveiled the new facility to the delighted staff and orphans, who received gift bags to commemorate the occasion.

Focusing on the young victims of HIV/AIDs, abuse and neglect, the key mission for 'Mother of Peace' is to 'build families and build a nation'. Through the community's supportive family environment, these children develop the necessary skills and confidence required to become valuable members of society.

In response to Active PCB-Solutions kind donation, the ‘Mother of Peace – Illovo' General Manager, Iris Canham, communicated that 'Your assistance has made it possible for us to make a difference to the children – who we serve. We could only sustain this through the amazing and thoughtful contributions from people and organisations like you'.

Since its inception back in 2002, 'Mother of Peace' was a charity close to the heart of the late Nelson Mandela. His conviction that South Africa had a collective responsibility to support its most needy children, was never far away from his thoughts; stating in July 1997 that 'Together as a nation, we have an obligation to put sunshine into the hearts of our little ones. They are our precious possessions. They deserve what happiness can offer'.
