Fight against COVID-19

Tech 4 Learning

The Covid-19 Crisis

The COVID-19 crisis has disrupted the education of millions of students. School boards are turning to distance learning to ensure kids are still able to continue their school year. This plan needs to be supported by access to a computer, laptop or tablet, and a high speed internet connection.

Every student must have access to these essentials so that all learning needs are met.

And yet, a recent estimate by Peel District school board (PDSB) indicates that there are at least 10,000 students in the Peel Region who lack a computing device and/or an internet connection.

“As a working father of five children, it’s an unplanned expense to buy a computer or an iPad to support them with learning from home. I can’t imagine the added stress on many parents in this crisis who now have to worry about finding extra money for a computer or wifi …”

Anas Saltaji, Chief Operating Officer at Venture X Canada.

A message from our CEO

“Thank you for taking an interest in our fundraising campaign. When COVID-19 hit, I knew that I had to do something to help in any way I can.

We are all in this together and as the head of a Mississauga based business, I feel it is my responsibility to serve the community of Mississauga and Ontario. I am not a doctor, nurse, food supplier or a pharmacist—the real heroes of today—but I do know the importance of equal access to education for our children.

This is why me and my team at Venture X Canada decided to kick start this campaign with 1000 computing devices already purchased from Microcad. We have to work together to help give our children equitable access to learning and to support the Ontario Together program. We are stronger together.

The target of this campaign is to get 10,000 working computing devices for children in the Peel District School Board in the shortest time possible. So I am personally inviting the participation and donations from any equipment suppliers and/or businesses in order to ensure that no student is left behind.

We are all in this together. Individuals, businesses and government.

Please donate today!

Saleh Al Aroud, CEO Venture X Canada
