The Digital Revolution Awards celebrate those that make the world of cloud technology a better place to live and work, and as part of that, we also want to give back and make the planet a better place. That’s why our in-person and virtual events raise vital funds for our charity partners around the world. All profits from our events in 2024, including your kind contributions, will be split between St. Martin’s School in Kibagare, Kenya and the Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK.
Situated in one of the poorest slums in Nairobi, St. Martin’s School offers children a safe environment where they can eat, learn and play, empowering them to build a better future. Since 1992 its many programs have helped transform the lives of its students, with some moving on to further education and creating incredible opportunities for themselves in the world of work.
The school also operates a community empowerment scheme, to help children beyond the confines of the school. This empowers the pupils’ mothers to be able to support themselves and their families. With no government funding and most pupils unable to pay school fees, the organisation heavily relies on donations to continue to exist. Funds being raised at the moment are being used to offer even more opportunities, as St. Martin’s looks to build a new secondary school for local boys.
In the United Kingdom, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words “you have cancer” every day. The Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to providing the specialised nursing care and support they need to get through it.
Cancer doesn’t just devastate a young person’s health. It threatens to take away everything they care about—their identity, their independence, and their dreams. The Teenage Cancer Trust funds specialist nurses, youth support teams and hospital units within the NHS to provide the very best care and support during treatment and beyond, making sure cancer doesn’t stop young people living their lives.
Please give generously as we aim to support these charities around the world.
