COVID-19 WAS THE TURNING POINT.
We are a handful of Londoners who came together as the Covid-19 pandemic swept through the UK, and volunteered our time packing and delivering vital essentials to hundreds of people at-risk and in-need in West London.
Our backgrounds are varied, from coordinating international aid to cyber-security. But we all have one thing in common: technology has propelled us through life. It being an essential aspect of modern living, its necessity has been both greatly accelerated and highlighted during the disaster/emergency.
It hits us personally, as we identified a clear lack of connectivity - from children with no other option but to do homework on smartphones, to older adults unable to reach out to family.
Thus, we decided to take action!
The result is Ready Tech Go, a community-driven, not-for-profit organisation that strongly believes access to technology should be classified as a right rather than a privilege.
We are proud to be a diverse, young, dynamic, environmentally conscious and BAME-led volunteer group:
Nikos Souslous Secretary
Kanwar Singh Director of Operations
Tomas Evans Director of Communications
Jymit Khondhu Director of Technology
Kullie Randhawa Treasurer
We are equally proud to have a volunteer advisory board we are looking to grow:
Savraj Kaur Chair
Sam Yearsley Advisor
