Impact of IT Equipment Reuse and Recycling by CAMARA2018 August 7

CAMARA reuses technology to enhance education of disadvantaged students around the world. Any IT equipment which cannot be reused is recycled at an authorised WEEE facility.

CAMARA acknowledges the contribution of the School of Computer Science and Statistics/Trinity College Dublin through the donation of 23 computers which alone will impact the education of 759 young people from disadvantaged communities. They recently shipped their 55th container with 1,000 computers to Ethiopia. 

A little makes a big difference. These children will now have access to the education needed to better fulfil their ambitions.

The next shipment is due to leave by August 15th, however, currently CAMARA only have 150 out of the 1,000 required computers. Each computer impacts the education of 33 young people.

How you can continue to support:

•       Spread the word amongst your friends and network about the shortfall

•       Continue to donate Desktops, Laptops, Monitors, Mice, and Keyboards
