Building a Community 

In the modern world of technology and business, volunteering for charitable causes often gets pushed to the sometimes never. We mean well, but sometimes life gets in the way. Taking the first step and making the decision to commit is, in itself, a huge one. 

Fortunately, World Wide Technology (WWT) has overcome this barrier with its entire company! This US-based global company uses a proven and innovative approach to help large public and private organizations discover, evaluate, architect and implement advanced technology. Founded in 1990, WWT has grown from a small product reseller into a technology solution provider with $10.4 billion in annual revenue and more than 5,000 employees. 

Using their annual volunteer “Day of Caring” provided to them by WWT, a team of Programme and Project Managers was determined to manage this project together. Allesandra Wang, being no stranger to volunteering, helped lead this team to fence-building victory at the Kinderboerderij WesterparkShe believes that “if everyone does a little bit, it makes a difference in the end.”  

Willem Tesselar embodied the WWT values of, in his words, “believ[ing] in giving back and truly enjoyed the project and “definitely” plans on doing another! The entire group truly did a lot of hard work and all pulled together to help each other fix up the petting zoo. From digging to hammering to sanding, this team really made the experience a success for everyone.  

They did such a good job that René Van Morgen, a farmer who has been the assistant manager and Kinderboerderij for 1 year, was extremely appreciative of the help. He says that the volunteers from WWT help save a great deal of time and money for this small community petting zoo. These kind souls make it so that the zoo is able to protect both the children and the animals and make for a safe environment for all. 

Every day there are more and more people who need help and in many different ways. If you’re looking for a volunteering opportunity that fits you or your organization, contact us at and let us help you help others.
