The programme aims to enable non-profit sector organisations technically by providing a range of solutions and multiple platforms. The latest donation brings stc Group’s contribution to SAR20 million (US$5.3 million) in the form of direct financial support and technical support for the platform. The platform also supports the group’s objective to stimulate innovative digital opportunities that are a strategic component of the company’s sustainability strategy to achieve the requirements of the SDGs.
