The Escape donates equipment to a school in Ghana
Our brand and digital agency have recently donated all of our retired computing equipment to a school in Ghana, a coastal country on West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea.
We offered our collection of servers, computers, laptops and monitors to Palmar International School which is based in Kumasi, Ghana’s second city and the capital of the Ashanti region. The school aims to provide Ghana with future leaders, and to empower students for the rest of their lives.
Our MD, Robert Jones, decided to donate the IT equipment direct to a worthy cause that would hugely benefit from the donation, rather than use a UK based computer recycling company.
He said: “As a brand and digital agency, our teams need the most up to date equipment to remain efficient. It made sense for us to donate the pieces we no longer used, so they could go on to be used in a sustainable way.”
Palmar International School provides education to meet the needs of the rapidly growing, diverse community in Ghana. It was opened in 1998 when founders Mr & Mrs Gyakyi returned to Ghana from the UK.
Mary Gyakyi, Director at Palmar International School, thanked us for our donation to their students. She said: “Our school has excellent technological facilities, but it’s gifts like these that help us to provide world class equipment to our students.”
