  • Netspring is almost two years old! Established in February 2012, our social enterprise has been able to fulfill its promise of protecting the environment and promoting education through the Green IT Classroom project. In any enterprise,  its team is its most valued component and at Netspring, we are very lucky. Not only do we have a competent, creative team, but one that’s also united and warmhearted.

  • Dear friends,

  • The last few months, Netspring received more than 1000 sets of used computers, and 643 sets were successfully refreshed. Among the refurbished computers, 179 were used to set up 8 Green IT Classrooms, and over 2700 kids benefited from those IT Classrooms. In addition, Netspring disposed of 968 obsolete computers’ main parts (frames, 
    CRT screens, laptops…) in an environmental-friendly manner. We have also eco-recycled 2295KG of e-waste, from 
    broken fax machines to 2nd hand printers etc.

  • What business entrepreneurs are to the economy, social entrepreneurs are to social change. In How To Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs And the Power of New Ideas, David Bornstein writes that social entrepreneurs are, the driven, creative individuals who question the status quo, exploit new opportunities, refuse to give up--and remake the world for the better. According to Bornstein, each single social enterprise pursues a better future, which not only tell us something about sharing and extending love, but also deliver the possibility of an ideal life. And this possibility comes up with every little change.

  • A vibrant social responsibility culture combines meaningful programs, long-term investment and a company’s full participation.
