‘Tis the season for holiday cheer! There is no better way to celebrate this time of year than give presents to the ones who bring us joy.
Just like last year, we went through the exercise of shortlisting cool gifts for our customers and ultimately went with something that’s really close to our hearts…
Learning and knowledge is core at TriNimbus. We practice what we preach both externally (through our AWS User Group Meetups in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Waterloo), through client enablement workshops, and internally (through our Lunch and Learns and technical deep dive sessions). Therefore, it seemed fitting if we could in some way make our holiday gifts about learning. And given what this wonderful season really stands for, we also decided to make it about giving.
TriNimbus is immensely proud to pledge a donation once again to One Girl Can, a Vancouver based charity that funds scholarships for girls in Africa. For those of you who don’t remember, our 2015 donation helped a very bright Ugandan student, Akera Scovia enroll in a certificate course in Lab Technology and boy did she make us proud with her grades!
When we received her progress report a few weeks ago, we were also told of Akera’s aspirations to pursue a 3 year higher level Diploma course which would make her a fully qualified Lab Technician. After hearing this, it was an incredibly easy decision to jump in and offer to help in whatever way possible. Our contribution this year will help cover school costs for 1 year and bring this incredibly bright 21 year old one step closer to her dream of becoming a Medical Laboratory Technologist.
