Our Partners

Camara have been a trusted partner of Dell’s for a number of years. We were delighted to support the opening of their education hub in Tanzania in 2012 and have been pleased to see its positive progress since. Our partnership with Camara goes beyond financial support from Dell Giving, with Dell supplying computers to be used in some of Camara’s eLearning centres and being able offer to our customers the option of donating their used technology to Camara. This has only become possible through our vigorous examination of Camara’s operational activities, including having visited many of their education hubs in Africa. Here we have witnesses first hand the positive impact they are having on the education of those most needy. We would strongly recommend others to support Camara. Jean Cox Kearns

Having worked with Camara for over six years, we find them to be a professional organisation that continues to impress to this day. We started supporting Camara with funding in 2008 and to date the lris O’Brien Foundation has donated in excess of €1 million to Camara. ln addition to this funding, our overseas Foundation, the Digicel Foundation, in Jamaican and Haiti also work very closely with them by providing funding in excess of $365,000 (US dollars).

We have learnt through our close relationship and their feedback over this time that the introduction of technology in education radically improves student’s chances in life and that is why we value the work of Camara. We would encourage others to support  and so increase the impact that they can have on the educational performance of so many disadvantaged children.

The Costa Foundation is delighted to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Camara Ethiopia to support our schools in the coffee growing area of Bule Hora, in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. Camara’s model fits extremely well with the Costa Foundation’s aim to increase access to education to children in these remote and marginalised communities and their social enterprise approach and partnership approach means that the actions we have funded are sustainable and long term.

We would recommend Camara as a partner to any organisation looking to make a lasting impact on education.
