Why we joined the 1% Pledge Movement

In recent months you may have seen our team volunteering to teach in schools in the neighbourhoods of Utrecht and you may be wondering why… well it’s all part of our commitment to Pledge 1%.

As a global philanthropic movement, Pledge 1% aims to inspire, educate, and empower companies of any size to be a force for good. Founded on the principle that companies pledge 1% of their profit, product, equity and employee time for their communities and non-profits.

At Brainial we are proud to be a member of Pledge 1%. We have seen first-hand how pledging a small portion of future success today can have an enormous impact tomorrow, which is why we are so committed to this program. Also we are delighted to work with some amazing non-profits and help them by pledging a part of our product and R&D capacity as a catalyst for them to achieve even greater good.

Every child has a talent. Including the hundreds of thousands of Dutch children who grow up in an environment with high unemployment and fewer role models. That is why JINC fights for a society where your background does not determine your future. Where every child has opportunities.
Brainial is a proud parter of JINC and supports them in many ways by for example teaching digital skills to children aged 8 to 16 in primary, secondary and tertiary education to give them a good start in the labour market.

The Erasmus Medical Centre (EMC) is using our donated software to help find an effective treatment for oncological orphan diseases (through drug repurposing). The first step in this process is the drug selection process (selecting candidates) where PHD students need to search through thousands of documents to retrieve facts (e.g. toxicity, BBB properties, etc..). Brainial should significantly reduce this time and effort. Meaning EMC can find and test much drugs quicker and hopefully extend the life of more patients.

Sharing my experience and time to give something back to the community I live in and that gave me chances to develop myself is a rewarding experience. To help and support young people to create and see chances that may impact their future career is a good way to give something back to the community.

Teaching at elementary schools is a way to share our enthusiasm about the possibilities of computers and our knowledge & experience. I loved to teach them about the concept of an algorithm and a computer program. All in a fun and playful way, hoping to give them a new view of what their future could bring when they understand and learn the skills to be creative and create the solutions that they imagine.
