As Poslovni Dnevnik/Lucija Spiljak writes, this donation is part of the global donation project “1000 Dreams”, which Huawei is implementing across Croatia for the third year in a row. It was launched here in Croatia on the basis of signed Memoranda of Understanding between this gigantic tech company and the Central State Office of the Government of the Republic of Croatia for the Development of the Digital Society from 2019.
As part of the “1000 Dreams” project back in 2019, 200 books, picture books and 200 educational toys of various kinds were donated to the users of the Zamisli (Imagine) association, while at the beginning of this year, 320 STEM books and 80 tablets were provided for primary schools in Glina, Petrinja and the surrounding areas.
“CARNET has been working for many years on the digital transformation of the educational system and the equipment of Croatian schools with modern technology through numerous projects. Therefore, we’re very happy to respond to Huawei’s invitation to participate in the ”1000 Dreams” project, which will enable students and teachers to take advantage of the benefits of information and communication technology and gain new knowledge and skills,” said Hrvoje Puljiz, Director of CARNET.
Representatives of Huawei visited schools and Croatian school children and handed over the tablets to the principals of the schools.
“Children and young people are the most important social group that we at Huawei are particularly focused on. We believe that in today’s world, access to digital technology is a prerequisite for their development and we’re extremely pleased that through such donations we can contribute to building a better future. In addition to raising the quality of teaching, we hope that our tablets will have a positive impact on directing young people towards the further discovery of modern digital technologies and opportunities that open up to us,” added Kevin Zhang Qiming, the CEO of Huawei Technologies Croatia.
The “1000 Dreams” project is otherwise a five-year cooperation programme during which Huawei will continuously work to improve the digital skills of young people in Central and Eastern Europe and encourage them to find a passion for science and engage in research.
