Sims Lifecycle Services donates 30 laptops

Children in India and Poland were provided laptops through Hemmersbach’s Kids Family – Direct Action program.

West Chicago, Illinois-based Sims Lifecycle Services (SLS), an information technology asset disposition (ITAD) and electronics recycling company, has donated 30 laptops to children in need through the Hemmersbach’s Kids Family – Direct Action program. According to the company, this donation makes it possible for children in India and Poland who are living in orphanages to access online activities and educational resources for distance learning programs.

The Hemmersbach Kids Family in Nuremberg, Poland, works with 71 childcare facilities, providing all housing, essentials and academic resources to support their educational and professional development. In India, Hemmersbach Kids Family similarly engages with orphanages and provides additional health and educational access and financial support. Together, these programs make it possible for 1,326 children to receive the help they need each day; 104 take part in the educational programs, and 430 children benefit from the biofeedback therapy, according to a news release from SLS.

“Sims Lifecycle Services is committed to keeping resources in use for as long as possible,” says Jelle Slenters, head of business development, EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) for SLS. “I am pleased that we were able to accommodate donating these units to the orphanages because it not only supports circular efforts, but it also offers the benefit of enabling these children to have the access they need to continue their education from a distance.”

According to SLS, its circular economy initiatives help clients keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract maximum value from those resources while in use and then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of their useful lives.
