TEECH was established in 1998 when a small team took on a challenge from a work colleague to repair two hospitals in Bucharest. In August the same year, volunteers aided in the restoration of the hospitals, which included, painting, plastering, installing lighting but in general making them cleaner, safer and brighter places. The successful endeavour led the volunteers to organize themselves into a Registered Charity; TEECH (Telecoms Eastern European Challenge) was born.
The idea is to improve the lives of those in Eastern Europe who are living in environments that are unthinkable in Western Europe. This can be accomplished by installing sanitary ware in schools, orphanages and elderly residences; The charity also delivers aid, including clothing, toys and shoes to the local communities in affected areas. There is hope that the help they do will encourage local people to continue to work hard and maintain what TEECH has done after they have left.
For the last two years Premier Print & Promotions has aided TEECH over the seasonal period in the donation of gifts for the TEECH Christmas Shoebox Appeal, these boxes include all of the essentials that children may need to get through the cold months of winter such as Toys, Educational Items, Personal Items, Warm Clothing and even Food.
