Many thanks to all of the volunteers who helped pack 250 computers into a container last Friday which will be shipped to Ndola in Zambia this week. It will arrive in 6-8 weeks. The cargo onboard will provide 10 schools with fully equipped computers labs which means over 5,000 students will have access to a computer this year. Teachers will be able to teach using the latest encyclopaedias as reference and use Office tools for classroom management.

Camara would like to say a special thanks to the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) who have given over 420 computers and laptops within the last 6 months.
We will be tracking their computers to schools in Zambia and will deliver back an impact study this July as part of our Africa2009 programme the monitoring and evaluation of how computers, that are being reused before eventual recycling, is having on the lifes of those who simply would not be able to afford a computer will reiterate the fact that, if you do not have access to a computer, you have an extremely limited access to education.

If you have a computer and want to give it a second life, please use Camara’s secure computer reuse services
