Eadon donates laptop to aid well drilling project

21/03/2024

Eadon is delighted to have donated a laptop which will be used to aid a charity well drilling project in Africa.

The donation was facilitated through the Yorkshire based charity, Jacob’s Well Appeal. Their mission is to change the lives of many of the poorest people in the world by offering vital support in areas such as education, agriculture, and healthcare.

Eadon’s placement student, Matt Smith, has volunteered his time over the past few years to support the charity’s project to restore a well drilling rig. The rig has since been dispatched to Bobo-Dioulasso in Burkina Faso to facilitate the drilling of a much-needed well for a school in need. 

John Beynon from Jacob’s Well Foundation kindly wrote to thank us for the donation. He said “The computer will be used to aid the well drilling project and also for other educational purposes by the school there. 

“Gifts of equipment make a significant, long-term difference to partners in poor countries like Burkina Faso where development is often hampered by poor or out-of-date equipment.”

At Eadon, we believe that every contribution, no matter how small, has the power to create positive change. We see this donation as another step forward in our continuing commitment to repurposing retiring IT equipment for meaningful purposes.
