It’s simple. Camara has a few processes that ensure that your computer is good shape when it arrives in a school in Africa:
1. Firstly we wipe all data off the computer to U.S Department of Defence standards. Specialised software ensures that all of your information is impossible to recover by third parties. We have tested it with the Cybercrime unit in UCD and it was impossible to retrieve any original data.
2. We test the computer and make sure that it meets our minimum specification and we will upgrade and fix it if necessary to ensure that it will perform when it gets to an African school.
3. We load our specialised CAMARABUNTU operating system which is specifically designed to aid education in schools.
Each computer is tracked from our workshops in Belfast and Dublin to their donor schools in coutries like Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Uganda and Zambia. Each computer sent is another library of information and a tool to provide empowerment through education to a student in Africa.
There is a second life in every machine that meets our spec, please do not throw out your computers, use them to provide education in Africa. More information on donating your PC.
