TechnologyOne sets sights on meaningful giving at VicWater annual conference

Long-term VicWater sponsor TechnologyOne plans to donate to charity in lieu of handing out paraphernalia at this year’s VicWater Annual Conference, highlighting the importance of social citizenship and underscoring its altruistic vision.

Just as the water sector campaigns to give every person on the planet access to basic human rights such as clean water and sanitation, TechnologyOne is on a multi-million-dollar mission to improve the lives of the world’s most vulnerable citizens: youth in poverty. The company is committed to making a difference to underprivileged and at-risk youth around the globe; it established the TechnologyOne Foundation to bring about change, pledging to donate 1% time, 1% profit and 1% product to support youth in need.

Initiatives of the TechnologyOne Foundation this year include entering a long-term partnership of over $100,000 per year with Opportunity International Australia, setting a goal of getting 500,000 children out of poverty over the next 15 years. The TechnologyOne Foundation has also recently partnered with the Fred Hollows Foundation to support the Vietnam Child Eye Care program, to eradicate avoidable blindness.

At the upcoming VicWater Annual Conference, TechnologyOne will donate to one of its major charity partners, The School of St Jude, which provides access to education for some of the world’s poorest students in Tanzania.

TechnologyOne understands that providing access to basic human rights – water, education, sanitation, medical care – can dramatically transform lives. The company believes organisations have a unique opportunity to make a difference in the communities in which they operate, to ensure they can thrive and grow.

As we tackle challenges facing the water industry at this year’s Annual Conference, it’s important to remember our responsibility on a global scale towards our most vulnerable community members. How we choose to spend our time and money matters. How we choose to allocate and manage our precious resources, such as water, matters. We all have the capability and capacity to make a difference.

TechnologyOne is once again proud to be the Dinner & Technology Sponsor at the VicWater Annual Conference 2017.
