Sci-Net Business Solutions is proud that it has recently supported the education of two African students by making a donation through the Rafiki Thabo Foundation. The donation will be used to cover the students’ tuition, housing, and other educational expenses.
The Rafiki Thabo Foundation was set up in 2006 by Jon Uglow. Having spent several months during his gap year living in a rural community in Kenya, Jon realised that when he headed home to a university education, his Kenyan friends did not share the same opportunities, no matter how bright or driven they were. For the majority, affording an education and all the socio-economic opportunities it would bring, was a remote possibility. Jon’s passion for helping change the outcome and break the poverty cycle – even for just a few – resulted in Rafiki Thabo being set up.
According to Duncan Fergusson, the Managing Director at Sci-Net Business Solutions, the donation is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to supporting education and empowering young people. Sci-Net has always recognised the importance of attracting and supporting new young talent, having launched an apprentice scheme for school leavers here in the UK; the Rafiki Thabo Foundation shares similar principles.
This generous contribution will significantly impact these two students’ education and future opportunities and serves as a reminder of the importance of supporting education and investing in the next generation.
Sci-Net Business Solutions has over 30 years’ experience in providing business management ERP solutions to small and medium organisations throughout the UK.
The company is Microsoft Dynamics NAV, Dynamics 365 Business Central & Azure Cloud Tier 1 Gold Partner. It was one of the first Navision partners in the UK and has been implementing and supporting Dynamics NAV (Navision) for over ten years.
