progeSOFT supports the humanitarian work of the Norwegian Refugeee Council

progeSOFT is supporting the humanitarian work of the Norwegian Refugeee Council, NRC, with licenses of the recently released progeCAD 2010 drawing software.

“Having a partner who understands and supports the work we are doing in countries with millions of displaced people and being able to use the professional drawing software progeCAD 2010 helping us to build better houses and schools is of great value to us. We and the beneficiaries of our work are very glad to all the support given by progeSOFT.” Martin Suvatne, Shelter Adviser, NRC.

progeSOFT believes in the importance of cooperate social responsibility in today’s global business. The state of the art software products produced can also help countries and people hit by conflict and crisis on their way to recovery. Today’s humanitarian organizations are professionally run using advanced technology and management in order to operate in very challenging environments. But with more than 45 million displaced people worldwide the needs are immense and every Euro spend on equipment and software is one Euro less spend on direct assistance. This is way progeSOFT is providing enough progeCAD 2010 licenses so that NRC can provide more adequate housing to people in need.

NRC is an independent, humanitarian non-governmental organization providing assistance, protection and durable solutions to refugees and internally displaced persons worldwide. With more than 2600 staff in around 20 countries in Africa, Asia, America and Europe it provides assistance on five core activities:
• Building of homes and schools
• Camp management and camp planning
• Distribution of food and non-food relief items
• Information, counseling and legal assistance
• Education in Emergencies

As of today progeCAD 2010 is NRC’s proficient tool for construction and rehabilitation programs in Burundi, the Democratic Republic Congo, East Timor, Georgia, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Lebanon, Liberia, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda, Myanmar (Burma), the occupied Palestinian Territories and Pakistan.
