Behaim EarthApple Fund

Behaim’s EarthApple Fund was founded to help underprivileged school kids
explore and learn about the world through the internet by putting in their
curious hands technology products they wouldn’t otherwise have access to. When
Martin Behaim invented the “Globe” he called it the “EarthApple”
to reflect a new way of looking at the world.

The EarthApple Fund tries to give school kids the opportunity
to discover the globe and expand their knowledge by putting computers
and tablets in their classrooms.

Who we help

The EarthApple Fund focuses its computer and tablet donations on grades 1-7 in low income or special
needs schools. Initially, we will focus on Central Eastern European schools, as this is where many Behaim
employees live. Our goal is to make the EarthApple Fund’s impact global in the future. The EarthApple fund
is staffed by Behaim IT Solutions’ employees and the company will cover all of the fund’s operating costs.
Behaim volunteers its time throughout the year and will coordinate the fund’s drive with the selected schools
once every annum.
