Help to raise £60,000
The CARE IT Adventure Challenge is one of the most fun and unusual challenges in our calendar. We're hoping to raise £60,000 to support CARE's work so we urge teams to get signed up for a very enjoyable challenge for an important cause, said CARE challenge manager Neil Munro.
Computer Weekly is once again teaming up with leading overseas development charity CARE International to announce the launch of the first CARE IT Adventure Challenge fundraising event, exclusively for IT professionals and those working in the IT industry.
CARE works in over 70 countries helping 59 million of the world's poorest people find a route out of poverty through long-term development and emergency aid. Many of CARE's overseas projects make use of IT in the most extraordinary ways, including using Google Earth to plan the construction of refugee camps following natural disasters or conflict; use of blogging from war zones; providing PCs and IT training for mothers to help them run schools for their daughters in areas where girls are marginalised.
If you work in any sector of the IT industry and are interested in taking part in the CARE IT Adventure Challenge, visit www.carechallenge.org.uk/IT or call the CARE Challenge Team on 020 7934 9470.
