Lenovo India, 02 December 2021: Lenovo, the global technology leader, announces the launch of Work for Humankind, a bold initiative that calls on volunteers from around the world – including from India – to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: to make a long-lasting difference while simultaneously working at their day job from one of the most remote places in the world, thanks to some of the most advanced, smarter technology. Lenovo is inviting volunteers to apply for the opportunity to participate in the daily life of this island community.

Work for Humankind’s location – Robinson Crusoe Island, a destination more than 400 miles west of mainland Chile – is one of the most ecologically rich places on the planet. Today, it faces many challenges. These include access to education and healthcare, the impact of habitat degradation, and invasive species. The local community, the international non-profit Island Conservation, and the Chilean Government have initiated a number of community-driven projects over the last decade to address these problems. However, these efforts are often hindered by telecommunications and technology challenges. Despite this, the island community is committed to protecting its natural and cultural legacy and intends to achieve sustainability through greater independence to meet food and energy needs, and conservation of its natural and cultural heritage.

Work for Humankind will send selected volunteers with a range of skills, backgrounds, and specialities to work at their day job, from Robinson Crusoe Island, while also volunteering to help prevent the extinction of endangered species and support the local community as it works toward achieving sustainability. This will be done through several life-changing restoration projects in partnership with Island Conservation and the local community on Robinson Crusoe Island, including developing much-needed connectivity solutions for the Island’s infrastructure. Volunteers will come from India and from nine other locations around the world.
