Empowering Education: Addteq and Iris Foundation’s Pledge 1% Initiative

In the spirit of giving, Addteq and Iris Foundation is proud to announce it’s commitment to donate $5000 to Pledge 1% this Giving Tuesday. But this act of generosity is not just a corporate gesture; it is deeply rooted in the personal journey of Addteq’s CEO, Sukhbir Dhillon.

CEO Sukhbir’s Inspiring Journey

Sukhbir’s story begins in Sion Koliwada which is near Dharavi, Mumbai, where he faced challenging conditions growing up in pre-librealised India. As the first engineer in his household, Sukhbir recognized the transformative power of education in his own life, and of the people around him. This realization fueled his determination to make education accessible to those who needed it most.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

~Nelson Mandela

The Birth of Iris Foundation

Sukhbir’s commitment to education took a more personal turn when he founded the Iris Foundation. Named after his daughter, Iris, this initiative was launched when Iris was just one year old. Now, as Iris approaches her tenth birthday, and Addteq refocuses itself on its software tools to increase collaboration and accessibility in the workplace, Iris Foundation also refocuses itself, driven by the belief that education can be a powerful catalyst for change.

Iris: The Young Philanthropist

Iris, following in her father’s footsteps, has taken up the cause of philanthropy in her own unique way. Earning money through chores, Iris has pledged to donate 1% of her income to support the education of children in developing countries. Her commitment reflects the values instilled in her by Sukhbir and the Iris Foundation.

Addteq’s Support for Iris’s Cause

In a demonstration of solidarity with Iris’s initiative, Addteq is contributing an additional $5000 to Pledge 1% on Christmas. Furthermore, Addteq is launching a GoFundMe page, inviting everyone to participate in the collective effort to empower education. This initiative goes beyond a mere corporate donation; it’s a commitment to fostering a culture of giving within the Addteq community.


The power of education lies not only in its ability to transform individual lives but in its potential to create a ripple effect of positive change in communities around the world. Addteq, Sukhbir, and Iris stand united in their dedication to this cause, inviting others to join them in the collective effort to make education accessible to all.

As we approach the season of giving, let us remember that every contribution, no matter how small, has the potential to make a significant impact. Together, we can create a world where education is a universal right, empowering individuals and communities to build a brighter future.
