Give IT a social return
Donate and give children a sustainable opportunity (to play sports)!
IT4Kids Foundation is committed to children
Many children in the Netherlands do not have the opportunity to play sports due to financial or physical challenges. Over 423,000 children grow up in a families that live below the poverty line. That is 1 in 8 children (and even 1 in 4 children in big cities) in the Netherlands. Of the 109,000 children with a physical disability, 70% indicate that they are lonely.
IT4Kids collects used hardware from companies and donates (on behalf of the contributor) the value of the hardware to charity projects committed to creating lasting opportunities (to play sports) for these children.
Together, we create opportunities for children to develop #skills4life, such as self‑confidence, cooperation, respect and discipline.
IT4Kids contributes to two community initiatives:
Sport and exercise
Our mission is to provide children with a sustainable opportunity (to play sports) who otherwise have none due to financial or physical barriers. The ROI on sport and exercise is 2.51. Thus, all investments are worth it.
Environmental and circular IT
We support circular IT by giving hardware a second life. By extending the lifespan, consuming less and reusing hardware, CO2 emissions can be reduced by 50%.
How does donating used hardware work?
Sustainable opportunities (to play sports)
Skills and values, such as respect, cooperation and how to handle loss are learned when participating in sports. These are #skills4life that are important for every stage in life. Playing sports helps create friends for life, reduces loneliness and is beneficial for a child’s physical and motor development.
Through all of the donated hardware and other donations we can contribute to charity projects that are committed to supporting children who do not have the opportunity to play sports every year. IT4Kids provides at least 3,500 children with sustainable opportunities (to play sports) each year. The charity projects that we support contribute to the development of #skills4life of children.
