With the holiday season upon us, we wanted to share some cheer with you - our wonderful customers and partners!
We were thinking of cool holiday gift ideas for our customers this year (festive socks and ugly holiday hats may have crossed our minds - ‘tis the season after all). However, we ultimately went with something that continues to hold a really special place in our hearts.
Mastery is at the core of what we do at TriNimbus and the best way for us to achieve that is through learning and knowledge. Throughout the year, this knowledge is also shared externally through our AWS User Group Meetups in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Waterloo and Victoria, through client enablement workshops, and internally through our Lunch and Learns and technical deep dive sessions. Therefore, in keeping with the spirit of the season, we decided our holiday gifts should be about learning and giving.
And Our 2017 Gift Is…. (Drumroll Please)
TriNimbus is 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 and 2016 donations helped a very bright Ugandan student, Akera Scovia enroll in a certificate course in Lab Technology and she continues to make us proud with her grades!
Akera is currently entering year 3 of her course. Our contribution this year will help cover costs for her school year and bring this incredibly bright 22 year old one step closer to her dream of becoming a Medical Laboratory Technologist.
We are also proud to announce that this year we were able to donate close to $7,500 to One Girl Can which will help not just Akera but 2 additional bright girls, Janet Nyambura and Dorcus Kyania become a Software Developer and a Software Engineer respectively.
Paying It Forward
2017 has been a great year for TriNimbus. We therefore thought paying it forward would be more meaningful than any gift we could possibly buy for our customers to celebrate this year.

From all of us at TriNimbus, we wish you and your families a wonderful Holiday season and a Happy 2018!
