SocialBox.Biz, a UK-based social enterprise, is gearing up for Refugee Week which falls on the 19th - 25th of June 2023. Refugee Week is a week-long celebration of the contributions, creativity, resilience and courage of refugees. SocialBox.Biz is committed to improving the lives of refugees by providing them with access to laptops.
By donating their old devices, companies and organisations can solve their impact problems, help bridge the digital divide and provide access to technology and communication to those who need it the most.
Latest case studies and refugee success stories using SocialBox.Biz Laptop:
SocialBox.Biz is solving impact problems for clients with their Laptops for Homeless, Refugees, and Older People in isolation initiative for many years. The initiative provides rehomed laptops and other tech devices to organisations and individuals who work with refugees, homeless people, and older people who can not afford any kind computer.
SocialBox.Biz Social Impact Consultant Carolyn Williams said, “We are the only community interest company re-homing old but usable tech from companies, universities, and other large organisations and placing them in the hands of the disadvantaged in local UK communities in this way. We provide on-site data removal service and load the technology with open source software, solving common problems for IT teams and social impact problems for our clients. We’ve done a lot, but we will do a lot more with the help of more partners.”

“As we mark Refugee Week, it’s important to remember that refugees are people just like us who have been forced to flee their homes due to conflict or persecution,” said SocialBox.Biz founder and Chairman, Peter Paduh. “By donating your old no longer needed, yet still usable laptops and other tech, you can help to provide a lifeline for refugees and other disadvantaged people who are trying to rebuild their lives.”
