CV, the leading independent job board from the UK, has recently announced that the company will be sponsoring a fully renovated and new computer lab for Sri Lanka's Gandys Kids Campus. The lab will provide and benefit more than 200 children with important digital skill education and exposure.
CV-Library has donated £3,100 to the campus, a non-profit education centre that provides high quality welfare and education to under privileged children aged 4-16 years old in Sri Lanka. The centre was built by the Gandys Foundation in memory of the 230,000 victims that sadly died in the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami, alongside the parents of Gandy’s founders, Rob and Paul Forkan.
Rob Forkan was one of CV-Library's first employees and him and his brother Paul have worked closely with the company's founder and CEO, Lee Biggins, for many years. CV-Library is delighted to be able to help the children to fulfill their dreams, achieve academic success and gain employment in the future.
Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library, comments: “We’re really excited about supporting the launch of this brand new computer lab at the Kids Campus in Sri Lanka. Being an online business, it’s easy to forget how fortunate we are and take for granted the opportunities we have in our country. Some of these children may never have even seen a computer before and the contribution will help these young people to learn vital skills that will help them to further their education and future employment prospects.
"I've known Rob for many years, having employed him after the tsunami and helping him build his career and set up his own business. I joined Rob and Paul at the Kids Campus over Christmas two years ago and it was a humbling experience. It's fantastic to see that the centre is growing and helping more children to achieve their goals and expand their horizons."
