SAPPI ‘Ideas that Matter’ is a competition that required us to choose a local NGO and, using only SAPPI paper products, find a creative solution to a problem the NGO was experiencing. We chose LEAP Science and Maths School, a school desperately short of computers.
We noticed that most companies update and replace their computers quite regularly. Our concept involves delivering empty computer boxes to these companies and encouraging them to put their old computers into the boxes. The computers would be collected and taken to where they would really be needed.
