Linpro has initiated a sponsorship with the organization From One to Another, supporting their important work for
every girl's right to education and for more sustainable societal development.
Karlsson works as a system consultant with us, and he thinks it's great that we
share our resources to help those in need in a way that directly relates to our
business and our passion.
Hi Henrik, Would you like to tell us a bit about our work with 'From one to another'?
The work we
do with 'From One to Another' is about providing people in need with the
knowledge to fully harness the potential of computers. It's probably not a very
controversial opinion that computers are the most important tool we have in
modern society, and therefore, it's also crucial to know how to use them in a
way that best suits one's needs. In our collaboration, we also aim to convey
the knowledge to further develop this incredibly important tool. If the problem
one has cannot be solved satisfactorily by the possibilities that computers
present, it is (almost) always possible to build that functionality oneself.
What are your thoughts on the sponsorship?
that we invest some of our resources in helping those in need. It's especially
advantageous that we can do it in a way that directly relates to our business
and our passion. More companies should do similar things, in addition to just
throwing money at the problem. Money always helps, but at a certain point,
expertise and knowledge are more valuable and useful.
How do you think our sponsorship aligns with our company's values?
and the promotion of technological knowledge go hand in hand. Without access to
existing technology, technological knowledge cannot be developed, and without
technological knowledge, the innovation needed for technological advancement
will vanish. Therefore, the collaboration with 'From one to another' perfectly
aligns with Redpill Linpro's values regarding the importance of Open Source.
What positive aspects do you see in our involvement in this initiative?
In an ideal
world, everyone would be somewhat technically proficient. This is a positive
step toward such a world. This work imparts not only knowledge but also an
attitude towards knowledge; we instill the curiosity and thirst for knowledge
that drives us and others. Moreover, Kenya is currently undergoing
technological development, and for this, it's important to make sure the
necessary resources are accessible. With this work, we sow the seeds for the
future, perhaps an abstract future for us, but certainly a tangible and
concrete future for those we are helping."
