Thanks to modern technology, many young people have been able to continue learning from home even though educational institutes have been forced to close. But not everyone has the money to afford their own computer, especially people who live with social and financial difficulties. Without a computer, it is impossible to keep up with online learning and many people are in danger of falling behind due to lack of resources. This is why Marcel Phillip, the Lord Mayor of Aachen, appealed to local companies to donate computers to VHS Aachen. ModuleWorks responded with 7 ready-to-use desktop computers and notebooks.
VHS Aachen gives young people the invaluable chance to retake their school exams and get the important qualifications that are vital for finding employment or a place of further education. The donated computers are a big step towards giving everyone an equal opportunity to push ahead with their learning.
“These are very challenging times for everyone in the education system and we are very pleased to support this initiative and help people gain access to the resources they need”, says Lothar Glasmacher, Head of Additive & Process Technologies at ModuleWorks.
ModuleWorks wishes all the students at the VHS Aachen every success with their studies.
