As a company (and individually), we find taking the time and energy to enhance the livelihood of others extremely rewarding, and acknowledge it as an essential responsibility that we embrace together as a team of people.
International VIQU Values
On an international level, our Managing Director, Matt Collingwood, undertook a a charity mission for Cambodian children. After months of alerting the local community to his efforts, Matt managed to collect over 800kg of donated clothes, toys, and IT equipment. He delivered this substantial collection of items to the Aspire orphanage in the Siem Reap province http://aspirecambodia-edu.org
The local Cambodian economy is reliant on tourism trade. The IT equipment donated provides the children with the opportunity to learn basic PC skills, which essentially helps towards them escaping the poverty trap, with the option of securing a job in the local tourism industry.
Matt spent 10 days working in the orphanage, distributing the IT equipment and other donated items to over 200 children. At VIQU we plan to continue a yearly contribution to the orphanage, and similar worthy projects globally.

Local VIQU Values – The VIQU Academy
We have developed the VIQU Academy, a scheme that offers youth in society aged between 16-18 years old, the opportunity to train in IT disciplines and secure a GNVQ. The VIQU Academy further supports these candidates in securing their first opportunity in the IT industry either by work experience or a government backed Apprentice Scheme.
In association with LMPQ Apprenticeships, the team at VIQU personally mentor from the scheme and develop their skills and awareness to enable them to add value in a professional work environment.
Our reward is providing work opportunities to an individual who otherwise may not have seen or fulfilled their potential before their awareness of the VIQU Academy.
