Infrastructure Ternopil city orphanage ready for lessons

Recently Ternopil city orphanage implemented an IT-infrastructure. Due to the donation of 3 laptops by the WALO foundation, the orphanage is now able to enhance the computer skills of the orphans and communicate with the world via the Internet.

Collaborative software from IBM!

Teaching-orphans and IBM are finalizing a two year partnership contract for the use of IBM collaborative cloud software. IBM supports the virtual classroom project of Teaching-orphans as part of their CSR program.
Teaching-orphans will use IBM’s Smartcloud Engage Advanced solution to build a strong social infrastructure for all volunteers and orphanages connected to the virtual classroom project. It enables the globally scattered volunteers and the orphanages involved to work and connect in a secure, stable and controlled environment. IBM’s statement “Let’s build a smarter planet” fits well with the objectives of Teaching-Orphans. IBM was represented by Warner Dijkhuizen, IBM Corporate Citizenship & Corporate Affairs Manager who has been very enthusiastic about this initiative right from the start.
