The 10th Internet Technologies Angola Solidarity Golf Tournament, held last Saturday in Luanda, broke its record for the amount raised in the auction of a single item in 10 years of activity.
The highlight of the day was Cabship's impressive donation of 5.5 million kwanzas for the auction of a canvas painted by children under the guidance of renowned artist Isabel Baptista, reflecting the spirit of solidarity at the event. The beneficiaries are pupils from two schools in Uíge who will receive two computer rooms fully equipped with computers and connectivity.
The Minister of Transport, Ricardo Viegas D'Abreu, who took part in the tournament with a golf team, emphasized the important role of ITA PARATUS in promoting digital inclusion, saying that "this tournament supports schools that so desperately need our help, so our presence
in this tournament contributes to the success of these social responsibility actions, which are always very important and contribute greatly to the sustainability of society, families and the environment in which companies operate.
In addition to Transport Minister Ricardo Viegas D'Abreu, who played with a team, the event's ambassadors Karina Barbosa and Yola Semedo also joined the cause. Yola Semedo treated the participants to a live performance at the Mangais Resort. Also demonstrating their commitment to this solidarity initiative were companies such as Espaços, Cabship, Riskos, MCSA, Ensa, Saudabel, Fabrimetal, Refriango, Sogrape Vinus, Unikus, Ayo, Paypay, Angola Cables, Quinta da Terrincha, Ecolumi, Kronos, Camicar, Suave, DSTV Streaming, DOM, Chandon, Weldane, Resort Mangais, Oxigen, PlatinaLine, Spider, Born, Porto do Lobito and Bravantic.

In this year's edition, the spirit of mutual help infected companies and partners at a charity gala lunch, donations and the massive participation of partners in the tournament where 24 teams and 96 golfers took part, organized by more than 100 technology employees.
