ActionAid Haiti: To become involved visit http://www.actionaid.org. Since the start of ActionAid in Roseaux, Haiti in 2007, MACS Software has supported this community through the “Child Sponsorship Programme” – the motto being “Child Sponsorship puts a smile on children’s faces”. From the beginning of 2015, ActionAid is supporting a network of ten schools in the Roseaux area, the aim being to introduce early years’ education. This pre-schooling teaches the alphabet, counting, shapes and colours, as this will help the children with socialising. It is the first time that these children have had this excellent opportunity.
Earlier this year, following a devastating earthquake and subsequent cholera outbreak, MACS sent in reinforcements to get the SCMS (a delivery partner for USAID) warehouse, which despatches vital antiviral drugs, back to full operational capacity.
We all celebrated MACS Software’s 21st birthday recently with a staff trip to the Sutton Elms Go-Karting circuit in Leicestershire in order to let off a little steam. Some of the team showed a natural aptitude for thrashing around a race track – a far cry from our day jobs designing software for some of the world’s leading corporations.
