The GIScience Research Group with the 3D Geospatial Data Processing Group and the team at HeiGIT (Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology) do send you the best wishes for a peaceful holiday season and a successful New Year. Thank you for your cooperation, efforts and interest in our work.
We hope with you that we will be able to return to normality at some point in 2021 and meet again in good health.
As in previous years, we have decided to donate money to those who are less well off, instead of sending gifts to our friends and partners. The Klaus Tschira Foundation has again provided HeiGIT gGmbH with a total of 5,000 euros for this purpose. Because of the challenges the pandemic poses on many people this year HeiGIT donated the money to those suffering depression (Deutsche Depressionshilfe).
Last year HeiGIT donated the same amount from KTS to ACTT via Charity4Aid. ACTT is an organisation supporting schools in Tanzania with refurbished computers and ICT training. It took some time, but the refurbished computers finally arrived at schools in Tanzania and we received those nice thank you pictures below. You are welcome! A big thank you to all who helped making this possible.
