GreenBridge Computing Joins World Vision's "Spark A Child's Digital Future" Campaign; Commits To Multipoint Servers For Pilot Schools In Kenya

-- Ten Multipoint Servers will Bring Thousands of Children in Developing World Classrooms into the Digital Age

-- $40,000 Donation to Launch School Pilot in Rural Kenya by Summer 2013

SEATTLE, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  World Vision, Microsoft, British Council, and Intel are moving forward on the "Spark a Child's Digital Future" Campaign, confirming a new commitment from GreenBridge Computing to assist with the upcoming launch in Kenya. GreenBridge joins the partnership for Phase One, which will provide Windows Multipoint Servers supporting hundreds of Windows 8 devices, as well as content, consulting, and deployment services for the first ten schools, helping to transform learning for thousands of students and educators in rural Kenya.  

Spark a Child's Digital Future is a collaborative effort, uniting World Vision, British Council, Microsoft, Intel and now GreenBridge Computing. The Spark a Child's Digital Future initiative brings holistic digital access to the classroom, including devices, infrastructure, and teacher training, which improves learning outcomes—in academics, life skills, and economic opportunity.

World Vision, with operations in nearly 100 countries, leverages their deep experience in sub-Saharan Africa in collaboration with the partners to initially bring digital access and 21 st Century learning to schools in Kenya. The GreenBridge donation adds efficiency and sustainability, with low power consumption, full teacher management capability, low maintenance costs and the longest expected lifespan, which increases sustainability. 

"We recognize that once a child's basic needs are met, digital skills development can be vital in helping children in developing countries succeed in a global world," said Chris Glynn, senior vice president for transformational engagement for World Vision US. "We are grateful for the partnership of GreenBridge Computing to help launch this important pilot project in Kenya."

The announcement of the GreenBridge Computing commitment comes as the partnership prepares to launch Phase One of the roll out in schools in rural Kenya.
