Cologne, February 21, 2018 - The Cologne-based software company dimedis has helped PROBONO School Partnerships for One World to relaunch its charity website. PROBONO is engaged in the long-term fight against poverty by promoting education in East Africa. Schoolchildren in Germany make a contribution by taking part in school partnerships that help to improve the learning and living conditions in African schools.
As dimedis sets great store by education, the company financed the relaunch and also supports the charity through logistical measures such as search engine optimisation. The partnership between PROBONO and dimedis has been in place since the charity was founded in 2004.
Wilhelm Halling, managing director at dimedis, talking about the relaunch of the website: “We support PROBONO because development starts with good education. The focus of the projects on schools in East Africa is very effective, from the construction of school buildings and the provision of teaching material to the water supply in agricultural projects to the set-up of Internet access in the schools. dimedis as an IT company gladly supports such projects with its know-how and financial donations.“
Andrea Alleker-Fendel, PROBONO’s chairwoman, said the following about the cooperation with dimedis: “As a charitable organisation, PROBONO depends on support from third parties through financial or other means. We would thus like to express our warm thanks to dimedis for supporting our work over so many years. Without this type of support, it would not be possible to equip schools on the spot with new classrooms and dormitories as well as books and other important teaching material. With a view to improving educational standards in the long term, PROBONO also promotes teacher training. The objective of all our projects is to pave the way for improved educational opportunities and a better future for the children in East Africa.”
PROBONO School Partnerships for One World was established in 2004 by its chairwoman, Andrea Alleker-Fendel. The charity supports school education in East Africa within the context of partnerships between schools in Germany and schools in Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. This promotes the fight against poverty in the long term through education and intercultural dialogue between children and young people in Germany and East Africa.
