An exciting new venture was launched in Farmleigh at 9am on the 8th November 2011 by Minister Pat Rabbitte, for ENCLUDE, an Irish technology charity extending their reach to enable more charities nationwide to benefit from technology donations. Mobileit have been named as their first local partner to deliver and support the technology programme to charities in the Limerick area.
With the generous support from Microsoft, CISCO and Symantec and in conjunction with Techsoup Global (US based Agency), ENCLUDE provides technology donations to Irish Charities in order to reduce the digital divide in Irish society.
Minister Pat Rabbitte and his senior officials met with Eamon Stack, CEO and Sylvester Murphy Deputy CEO at his office recently.
The minister heard about both ENCLUDE's Technology Donation's programme and its Technology Solutions programme for the charity sector. The Minister offered to "help if he could" to sign post and encourage State funded charities to apply through ENCLUDE's Technology Donations programme - ENCLUDEit.org - for technology donations from major donors like Microsoft, Cisco and Symantec.
