News : Ocular Donates Computers to Coronation Training Centre
Johannesburg, South Africa, April 5, 2016 -- Ocular Technologies has donated computers and software to Coronation Training Centre, a school based in Newlands, Johannesburg that caters for learners with special educational needs - both intellectually and physically impaired children.
A team from Ocular recently visited the school to formally hand over eight computers and software for use by the school’s administrative staff, teachers, speech and occupational therapists, and learners. In addition, the company has registered Coronation as a non-governmental organisation (NGO) with Microsoft South Africa’s NGO support programme, which will provide the school with free software for the more efficient use of technology, and also allows for other organisations to provide funding to the training centre.
"Ocular has made educational support a focal point of its corporate social investment programme," explained Ebrahim Dinat, COO at contact centre solutions provider, Ocular Technologies. "Once we had been alerted to Coronation’s needs, we were so touched by the staff and children of the facility that we knew Ocular had to help them wherever possible."

"Aside from helping staff to run the school more efficiently, it is Ocular’s belief that technology plays an instrumental role in helping children to reach their fullest potential, and will provide these special learners with greater freedom and a new experience. This ties in perfectly with the school’s vision to serve differently abled children by developing their capacity to reach their fullest potential in order to take their rightful place in society.
"Our donation of the computers is just the starting point of our relationship with Coronation Training Centre, and we look forward to moving together into the future," Dinat said.
