A well-designed partnership between two business entities reaps financial benefits to both parties, but a partnership between a business entity and a group of energetic, eager-to-learn and appreciative high school students pays dividends that can’t be measured in dollars and cents.

Making a Difference, One Paralympic Athlete at a Time

by Juniper Employee ‎06-09-2015 01:42 PM - edited ‎06-09-2015 01:43 PM

Juniper, together with many of its peers from across the cable and telco industries, attended and sponsored the 20th anniversary of the Adaptive Spirit's annual SKiTAM event.  Hosted annually in Vail, Colorado,  SKITAM donates all of the proceeds from the event to the US Paralympic Ski and Snow Board Team. The financial impact in 2015 was significant with more than $1.3 million being raised.  The impact to the individual athletes translates into hard dollars for equipment, transportation, lodging, food and more -- all directly related to their efforts to compete on the global, world championship and Olympic stage.  Stephen Lawler is one of those athletes and the video enclosed here represents part of his story.

Human trafficking has become one of the world’s most lucrative and despicable criminal enterprises, and the San Francisco Bay Area is a known hotspot.

Juniper Networks Donates $1.5M in Networking Equipment to UMass Amherst

by Trusted Contributor ‎10-08-2014 09:38 AM - edited ‎10-08-2014 09:39 AM

In the hopes of enabling the workforce of the future to use High-IQ Networks, Juniper Networks announced on 26 September 2014 that it has donated $1.5M worth of networking equipment to the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass). UMass will use the technology donation, which is being made through Juniper’s Academic Alliance programme, to build a dedicated high-speed network to support science research and increase the ease of use and speed of large academic data transfers across campus.

 

Julie Buehler, UMass Amherst vice chancellor for information services and strategy and chief information officer, said, “This donation supports faculty and student discoveries while enhancing the value of our existing infrastructure. We can move high-usage academic and research traffic to a dedicated pathway to improve its speed of performance while easing the burden on our current network, which expands the gift’s benefit to our entire campus. We are extremely grateful to Juniper Networks. They understand our vision and capability to use this gift in a very distinctive and meaningful way.”

Day Four of the Not For Sale Summer Camp, Romania

by Trusted Contributor ‎08-11-2014 04:59 AM - edited ‎08-11-2014 06:11 AM

The last day of the Not For Sale summer camp involved taking the children to a historical castle - Corvin Castle, Hunedoara, Transylvania (inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula's Castle), which was a great adventure for the children. Some of whom have never been on a trip out of their own village. Simple day trips like this are important for them to build up their confidence levels, help them understand that there is a world to be discovered outside of their respective villages and expose them to new experiences that other children experience. I think they thoroughly enjoyed their little adventure!

 

 

The final evening celebration was a dinner with the children, a bonfire, games and a short movie. It was lovely to chat and say our final good byes to the children, it is hard not to get affected by the stories and the little personalities we met, but hopefully the time we dedicated to children will have a positive effect on them.

Day Three of the Not For Sale Summer Camp, Romania

by Trusted Contributor ‎08-09-2014 10:11 AM - edited ‎08-11-2014 06:11 AM

The children went to church for a blessing this morning, and we met them and the Catalan dancers afterwards, who produced a traditional dance demonstration and small festival for the children. The festival included depictions of the seasons and then we were treated to a musical dance on the walk back to the Not For Sale children's home and farm.

 

 

Today was blistering hot and we spent the afternoon getting to know the children, playing games, arts and crafts as well as generally chatting about their stories. There are some incredibly experiences that some of these children have been through in their short lives. Two stories particularly stood out me. Firstly, I met Mark* an Afghani teenage who had lost his family in convoy of cars once they crossed the border into Romania, they had been travelling from Iran to Sweden and were fleeing the Taliban. I can't imagine what this must feel like for this young man to be alone with his younger brother in a strange country and unable to speak the language. It was hard to hear his story, particularly seeing the sadness in his eyes when he spoke of his family. I tried to comfort him with words of encouragement that he would be reunited with his family soon, but who knows if this will happen. I truly hope he gets reunited with his family. Fingers crossed!
