Impact on the local communities
We’ve developed a partnership with Greensource to build sports facilities in communities facing water scarcity and, thanks to the Huddle Up project, we’ve built a school soccer field that is capable of collecting and conserving water.
With our Free Wi-Fi project, we’ve contributed to the creation of free Wi-Fi networks at both local and provincial levels. By installing Wi-Fi hotspots at schools, we’re also promoting the use of educational content and offering free access for students and teachers.
Finally, in partnership with a number of independent energy producers, we’ve created a fund to support young people from disadvantaged communities who have achieved excellent academic results.
