The Bucim Mine has generously donated IT equipment in support of the digital inclusion initiative for children in Macedonia

Bucim Mine has joined the “Donate a Computer” initiative, demonstrating its commitment to environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) principles by contributing over 250 pieces of IT equipment.

The “Donate a Computer” humanitarian action focuses on collecting used computers and equipment, restoring them, and distributing them to citizens from vulnerable categories. In addition to assisting socially disadvantaged individuals, the organization also provides support to educational institutions. To date, they have positively impacted over 2,500 individuals and 30 schools across the country. Moreover, high school students actively participate in repairing the donated equipment, providing them with the opportunity to acquire practical skills.

Ivica Karapetrov, deputy manager of the Bucim and Borov Dol mines, expressed the company’s dedication to this socio-humanitarian cause, stating, “Our participation in the ‘Donate a Computer’ initiative represents our commitment to using technology for social good, promoting digital literacy, and fostering inclusive growth in the communities we serve. The donation of over 250 pieces of IT equipment, including computer cases, monitors, laptops, keyboards, printers, scanners, WIFI routers, and much more, is a tangible manifestation of our commitment to supporting digital inclusion for children in Macedonia.”

“Donate a Computer” is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that aims to ensure every family in Macedonia has access to at least one computer. Recognizing the essential role of computers in learning, the organization repairs and donates used but operational computer equipment, with a primary focus on supporting children from socially vulnerable backgrounds.

Through this contribution, Bucim Mine aligns itself with the broader goal of “Donate a Computer” to bridge the digital divide in Macedonia. The initiative seeks to empower children by providing them with the necessary learning tools, emphasizing that the computer is not a luxury but a key educational resource.
