Frank Geisler's Volunteer Experience & Causes

  • Volunteer Experience

    • Hub Manager Labdoo Hub Zürich

      Labdoo.org
      • Children
      February 2012 present (2 years 8 months)

      Frank Geisler professionally works at ERPsourcing in Switzerland – as a volunteer at Labdoo Frank Geisler is looking for laptop donations. Why?

      A laptop is a door to education, providing children free access to open source education tools and electronic books through the Internet.

      In the richer countries, every year more than a hundred million laptops are replaced by new ones. This number continues to increase, yet most of the children in the poor regions of the world still lack access to education.

      The goal of Labdoo is to use grassroots, decentralized, social networking tools to efficiently bring excess laptops to the children in the developing world without wasting additional Earth resources.

      Join Labdoo and Frank Geisler and use the social network tools to bring a laptop to a child!
