The Foundation, in a 3 years partnership with Science of Life Systems 24/7 Sdn Bhd “(SOLS Tech)”, brought technology to underprivileged communities in Malaysia with the goal of making technology accessible to everyone.
In 2016, SOLS Tech programme carried out through the Foundation’ was renewed and reintroduced as Transform IT. The newly enhanced programme is aimed to create awareness among the Hong Leong staff via a tech recycling programme to reduce electronic waste and channel the refurbished electronics devices and computers to NGOs in need.
The programme encourages Hong Leong staff to donate their old devices such as monitors, CPUs, television sets, old cell phones, digital cameras and chargers. To date, 386 digital devices donated by our staff members were refurbished, upgraded and delivered to communities in Peninsula Malaysia by SOLS Tech, all for free.
SOLS Tech does the refurbishment and upgrading, decide on the recipients based on actual needs and the number of beneficiaries. In the event the items are not usable anymore, SOLS Tech responsibly recycles the devices gathered. All Hong Leong staff are encouraged to donate their digital devices during the Transform IT collection drive organised by SOLS Tech.
