Temenos Adopt-iT volunteering took a new dimension as our employees, despite the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, continued coaching and teaching the students virtually. Adapted to the new normal, our people dedicated more than 500 hours to be next to the students of the Adopt-iT schools, to close the digital divide and eliminate the homework gap and to continue to inspire these students to pursue their dreams and progress in their lives.

2020

We provided Covid-19 preventative kits to the students of the Adopt-iT schools that we support in India and additional kits to ten more Government schools and two Government Education Headquarters in Chennai and Bangalore, India.

Giving Students a Head Start With Our Adopt iT Program in India

It was with enormous pride that I saw first-hand the impact of the invaluable work of Temenos volunteers in India – supplying school children with modern IT equipment and encouraging them to stay in school as part of our global CSR program, Adopt iT.
