On 11 December 2019, CloudSmiths – a Salesforce partner – handed over monitor screens to the Click Foundation, an NPO established in 2012 to find ways of using technology to improve Foundation Phase (Grades 1–3) literacy in South Africa.
These monitors were still fully functional, but became available as CloudSmiths had recently upgraded its hardware. CloudSmiths supports the Salesforce 1% Pledge to give 1% of time, profit and equity to fundraising activities and charitable donations: “We are proud to support the Click Foundation in assisting underprivileged learners to reach their full potential,” says Jason Timm, Managing Director, CloudSmiths.
Timm adds that statistics show that 78% of Grade 4 learners can’t read for meaning: “The Clicks Foundation does phenomenal work combating illiteracy in South Africa and we are happy to be assisting this great cause!”
