Tech4all is a Registered U.K. Charity ( # 1054041); its mission is to reduce poverty through the use of technology and other means. It is currently sponsoring the major Innovation4all Award, jointly with the City Livery Company: The Worshipful Company of Engineers. This offers funding of £20,000 for the winning entry that demonstrates a truly innovative approach to using technology to reduce poverty; an annual award with closing using in late February each year. The 2023 winner is developing a system that refrigerates while purifying water. See websites for details. Previous projects have included the Voicemail for the Homeless, back in the days before mobile phones were widely available, which won a Lord Mayor of London Award; a 3D printing unit established in Nairobi, Kenya that printed microscopes for local schools; and studies on innovative shared transport systems.
Tech4all is looking for marketing support for the valuable 2024 Innovation4all Award, entries for which must be in by 28th Feb 2024 with the winner announced at a City Dinner in June 2024. We want to raise awareness of the Award among engineering companies and institutions, and technology-orientated not-for-profits, in the U.K. and around the world. We would greatly appreciate help with this. Please get in touch for more information. Best wishes, Giles.
