Bridging the digital divide
Bridging the digital divide. Data Respons Solutions’ Taiwan office has partnered with the ASUS Foundations programme, PC Recycling for a Brighter Future, and have so far donated 24 laptops, 21 iPhone’s and 12 monitors.
ASUS is a Taiwan-based, multinational company that design and manufacture computer hardware and electronic devices for the consumer market.
The ASUS Foundations programme, PC Recycling for a Brighter Future, was founded in 2008 and collects and refurbishes old notebooks, PCs and LCD monitors and donates them to disadvantaged groups and NPOs (non-profit organisations) who lack digital equipment. The programme gives the new life to equipment that would otherwise be scrapped and benefits needy communities as well as the environment.
