The ASEKOL not-for-profit organisation endeavours to help most where it is most greatly needed. Therefore, its attention for several years has been focused upon kids in children’s homes. Each year, it organises several projects to help those homes.
Donate a Mobile
Donate a Mobile, a unique collection event underway since 2008, is focused, as the name implies, on mobile phones that are no longer in use – more than 8 million of which exist in Czech households. ASEKOL checks the selected phones, hands over the non-functional ones for recycling, and donates the functional ones to children’s homes, shelter houses and other organisations.The project is focused on households and companies. During the whole year, awareness actions about necessity and importance of EET separation are organised.
Partner organisations of the project
Within actions in companies and public events, ASEKOL provides for every 100 collected old mobile phones 1 new mobile phone to the organisation DEJME DĚTEM ŠANCI.
Donate a Computer
Another collection event directed to helping children’s homes is Donate a Computer, one more of ASEKOL’s long-term projects. Since 2011, it has focused on collecting computers no longer in use but collecting dust in Czech companies and households. The project’s objectives are to donate surplus functional computers to kids in children’s homes while also motivating firms and individuals to hand over the unused equipment for expert, environmentally friendly recycling.
