Compassion is one of the NUITEQ® values: “We give back to the less fortunate through charity and volunteering, and we share our success with our community through sponsoring.”
We recently attended Creative Summit, where, while networking, we learned that Bengt Ivansson, the Director of Trade and Business Development at the Skellefteå municipality, is currently leading a reconstruction project for the St Annes Preparatory School in Kampara, Uganda.
The project is currently trying to raise a total of 500 000 SEK (56 000 USD) via donations.
The money will be used to renovate the school’s classrooms, restrooms, garden, roofing etc. You can learn more about the rebuilding plans here.
St Annes school facilities now and in the future.
At NUITEQ, our goal is to “make education fun”, but in the St Annes Preparatory School case it goes further than that. It’s about building a safe place where children can learn, grow,and flourish.
Having heard about this project, we knew that we must act. So we decided to donate a sum of money to help cover a large portion of the expenses of the roof replacement.
“I’m proud that NUITEQ will sponsor a portion of the cost of the roof of the school building, because we are passionate about education and helping the less fortunate. I’m feeling blessed that we are able to give back to kids in Uganda and not only change the lives of 50 children, their parents and teachers, but hopefully also future generations.”, says NUITEQ CEO and co-founder, Harry van der Veen.
The 36-year old school has a capacity of 50 students, with different religious beliefs, backgrounds, cultures, and nationalities.
The renovation project is ongoing and you can follow its evolution on St Annes School Facebook page.

Any donation matters and is highly appreciated!
