HT donates EUR 95,000 for social projects

The Hrvatski Telekom (HT) telecommunications company on Wednesday awarded 720,000 kuna for 12 social projects from throughout Croatia as part of its 10th donation contest "Together We Are Stronger".

In the past ten years HT has donated HRK 8.5 million to help 240 projects throughout the country as part of its socially responsible business strategy, HT CEO Davor Tomaskovic said. "This is our strongest donation project within which we collaborate with many institutions, associations and HT staff. Given the great interest, it was not easy to select those to whom the donations would be awarded."

The HRK 720,000 was divided among 12 projects in three categories -- technology and communications, training and digitisation, and the environment and sustainable development. Donations ranged between HRK 30,000 and 90,000. The projects were selected from among 345 applications.

Karolina Dvojkovic of Vukovar Secondary School said that the donation would help them get new computer equipment for their school. "The computer equipment in our school is outdated ... and we believe that this donation will make all the students and teachers happy," she said.
