What we are doing
The Acronis Schools Initiative finds underserved and neglected communities where children and adolescents suffer from a lack of educational infrastructure and poor learning environments.
Working with non-profit organizations worldwide, the Acronis Schools Initiative builds schools that meet the unique needs of each community and helps find to solutions to the infrastructure challenges that can affect a school’s effectiveness.
By building the schools needed to spread knowledge in underserved regions of the world, we plant the seeds of opportunity for individuals, families, and communities.
