The 2010 Softchoice Cares Sri Lanka Mission

Culture | Posted on September 28, 2010 by Karly Pierce

This year the Softchoice Cares board made the decision to revisit the first location to where Softchoice Cares all started, Sri Lanka. In December of 2004, a devastating tsunami struck South East Asia. Following the catastrophe a few employees decided to raise money to support the massive relief effort. Their example caused a chain reaction companywide and Softchoice Cares was born.

The decision to go to Sri Lanka went through a lot of debate and the board felt that revisiting Tangalle, Sri Lanka would have a largest impact on the employees of Softchoice.

The goal of the 2010 mission is to:

  • Build a computer lab at Tangalle Primary School
  • Educate and train teachers and students on computer basics
  • Build a training facility
  • Participate in a Habitat for Humanity build in Galle
  • Revisit the location(s) from the previous board

This year the entire board is participating in the mission. Additional participants to the mission include:

  • David MacDonald – Softchoice President and Chief Executive Officer
  • Rachelle Goddard
  • Cédric Morel Delarue
