Technical obstacles prove to be the main problem for home schooling in times of the corona crisis. Especially socially weaker families, who lack the necessary equipment, are affected. To make access easier for students, ALD Automotive donated laptops to the Neue Mittelschule Staudingergasse.
The current situation poses a challenge not only for adults. It is also a challenge for the little ones among us who are currently unable to go to school as usual. Home Schooling is the alternative here. But for many this is often impossible. Especially socially disadvantaged families often lack the technical equipment.
In order to make a small contribution, ALD Automotive donated 17 new laptops to the Neue Mittelschule Staudingergasse, a social focal point school in the 20th district of Vienna. The laptops are provided to students who do not have access to appropriate devices at home, so that they can participate in virtual lessons and get the same learning opportunities as their classmates.
"Social commitment is an important part of the corporate culture of ALD Automotive. However, especially in such challenging times like these, the topic is gaining in importance. We are happy that we can support NMS Staudingergasse with our donation and that the help arrives exactly where it is currently needed", says Claudia Tauchhammer, Human Resources and Marketing Director of ALD Automotive Austria.
