ParetoLogic Donates $100,000 for a Better Future
With a focus on helping the next generation, ParetoLogic, a B.C.-based software company, has donated $100,000 in total to three charities.
Victoria, B.C., February 8, 2014 – Software company ParetoLogic has donated $100,000 in total to three charities that help children and families around the world.
The Victoria, B.C.-based makers of RegCure Pro and other popular software recently announced the large charitable contributions after a successful 2013. The company donated $35,000 to World Vision’s "Education for All" project in South Sudan, $35,000 to the Excellence in Child Health Fund of the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, and $30,000 to Free The Children. These donations keep with ParetoLogic’s company culture of giving back and helping others.
"We feel really good about maintaining a corporate culture where we help children and families," Elton Pereira, ParetoLogic CoFounder and Chairman, said. "In turn they are able to help others in their community."
Founded in 2004 by four brothers, ParetoLogic has long supported charities, organizations, and individuals focused on helping children and families. The company has assisted with efforts both in its hometown of Victoria and across the globe.
Free The Children will use the funds donated by ParetoLogic to build three school rooms in Adopt a Village developing communities in India. Adopt a Village is Free The Children’s holistic and sustainable development model, and through its education pillar, Free The Children builds schools, school rooms and libraries, provides teacher training, and outfits schools with furniture and basic school supplies.
In 2012, ParetoLogic staff raised $10,000 to build a school in Kenya, which was matched by the founders of ParetoLogic to also construct a school room in Haiti.
"With the generous support of partners like ParetoLogic, Free The Children is able to help communities overseas create a brighter future through education," said Marc Kielburger, co-founder of Free The Children. "Around the world, there are still 57 million children who are denied access to education, By building schools and school rooms in developing communities, ParetoLogic helps open the doors to education for those children – empowering them to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families."
ParetoLogic also supported World Vision’s Education for All project in the South Sudan that is focused on the empowering nature of education. While it involves construction of schools, the project seeks to contribute to the growing culture of formal education and removing the barriers that prevent girls and boys from going to school. As well, the Education for All project enables them to know and understand their personal and family health, it provides them access to economic opportunities, it permits them opportunities to participate in the leadership of their community and it helps to protect and exercise their rights.
"The ‘Education for All’ project in South Sudan is a very important one and World Vision is extremely grateful for Paretologic’s compassionate support," said Russ Fox, Development Advisor for World Vision Canada. "The project takes place in the newest country in the world and supports some of the most vulnerable children on our planet. Children in South Sudan have inherited a broken nation after decades of civil conflict. The young government is doing its best to provide essential services for citizen’s but it needs the support of NGOs like World Vision to reach the public. Health care and education are largely subsidized by NGOs."
A little closer to home, ParetoLogic’s donation to the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Excellence in Child Health Fund supports the Vancouver-based organization’s urgent needs. It will help programs and services provided by B.C. Children’s Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children, and the Child and Family Research Institute grow.
"Generous support from ParetoLogic is helping meet BC Children’s Hospital’s most urgent needs and having an immediate impact on patient care," said Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. "This donation is supporting the purchase of equipment, education and training for staff and families, and research aimed at developing better treatments for childhood diseases."
