COVID-19 WAS THE TURNING POINT.
We were founded as the Covid-19 pandemic swept through the UK, and the digital divide clearly needed more rapid and locally focused response.
Our backgrounds are varied, from international aid to cyber-security. But we all have one thing in common: technology has propelled us through life, and is an essential aspect of modern living and individual successes.
So, as a clear lack of connectivity was identified - from children with no other option but to do homework on smartphones, to older adults unable to reach out to family, we decided to take action.
That's how we formed 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 going strong, with four of the original Co-founders in post, and continuously reviewing and improving the way we work so we can better serve those in-need.
A BAME-led group that is largely volunteer led and who remains passionate about our impact way after any pandemic:
Savraj Kaur BEM Chair (on Maternity Leave)
Kullie RandhawaVice Chair & Treasurer
Nikos Souslous Secretary
Jymit Khondhu Cyber Lead
- Tomas Evans
Amani Sherif Project & Operations Manager (p/t)
We are also looking for volunteer advisors that can meet when expertise is called on, with significant industry expertise in finance/accounting, legal, fundraising, operations, development and start-ups.
