On October 14th, 2017, Bolloré Logistics Vietnam attended the graduation ceremony of Passerelles numériques (PN) Vietnam students.
The Passerelles numériques Vietnam NGO program was launched in 2010 in Da Nang, a city identified as a high potential area for Information Technology (IT) sector development. Bolloré Logistics Vietnam is supporting the organization through donations since early 2017.
Earlier this year in April, nine second-hand computers were provided to Passerelles numériques structure in Danang, after which it was decided to provide seven more prior to the graduation ceremony; as well as 10 keyboards and five computer mice.
Bolloré Logistics Vietnam believes in social and educational development through Passerelles numériques' actions and will continue to support students in Vietnam, for them to have a chance to gain a solid general knowledge and a better understanding of the world around them; in order to meet the job market skills requirements.
Marc Moeschlin, Managing Director of Bolloré Logistics Vietnam, adds "With this very concrete CSR action, we not only contribute to give better IT education chances to these underprivileged students, but we are also eager to increase the pool of future tech-savvy talents in Vietnam; which will support Bolloré Logistics in a broader sense, as our industry is more and more driven by technology, algorithm decision making and digitization."
