Global partnerships

“Think of giving not as a duty but as a privilege.”

John D. Rockefeller Jr

We’re inviting everybody to support our global charity partners. By channelling our focus and leveraging our scale, we believe we can make a meaningful contribution over the longer term. This year and next we’ve partnered with Computer Aid and Habitat for Humanities, and there are so many ways to give.

Fundraise! A football or netball tournament, a sponsored triathlon team, host a social event urging attendees to make a cash donation or simple and easy bake sale. Involve your colleagues and rally support from across the business. Read about the fundraising events and activities already taking place across the Group and perhaps you can replicate their success to make a difference on a global scale.

Or simply donate. If you’re inspired by a colleague’s personal story or if you feel passionately about the causes our partners represent, please make a contribution. However big or small, every little helps, thank you.

Computer Aid

Computer Aid is a UK based charity which carries out work on a global scale by reconditioning unwanted IT equipment. Once reconditioned, equipment with newly installed and comprehensive training programmes is donated to the neediest communities across the world, such as schools, hospitals and refugee camps. By doing so, they help bridge gaps in Education, Agriculture, Health and Crisis Response.

Computer Aid is now able to extend its reach even further, assisting many needy communities who do not have access to power supplies and other vital resources, in the form of a ZUBABOX – a mobile, solar-powered internet hub made from a recycled shipping container that provides connectivity and access to new technology, even to the most isolated and remote communities around the world. To date, Computer Aid have deployed 12 ZUBABOXES across Africa and South America. Each unit has the capacity to support up to 12 PC work stations and in all cases they have proved to be an integral community resource.

In addition to donating unwanted IT equipment, Endemol Shine Group aim to provide funding for a new ZUBABOXES over the next 12 months at a cost of £20,000. To date, we’ve raised £18,000 through a variety of initiatives and donated 40 PC units. This is a terrific opportunity for every OpCo to get involved with fund raising endeavours in support of Computer Aid.

Habitat for Humanity

Endemol Shine for Humanity brings participants from Endemol Shine OpCos together to work as a team on a charity project.

Endemol Shine Group have partnered with global charity Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organisation that seeks to eliminate poverty, housing and homelessness from the world and make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action worldwide.

Founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity has constructed or renovated and repaired more than one million homes helping more than six million people gain strength, stability and independence.

This organization builds homes for people in need in the poorest areas of the world. The actual building is done by the participants, together with the local people – future inhabitants of the homes.

In 2015 participants from the UK, USA, France, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, South Africa, India, Australia, Middle East, Israel, Poland, Portugal and Group helped build two homes in Bawana, New Delhi.

In November 2016 18 participants are travelling to Zambia to help construct safe and affordable housing for a community of orphans and caregivers whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS.
