Haregwoin Ababu is one of the many successful students Camara Education has supported. She used a computer for the first time, aged 11, in a Camara classroom at Jerusalem Elementary School in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Her teachers inspired her to apply for a special programming course. And now, aged 18, she has won a place to study Computer Engineering at Bahir Dar University. Her ambition is to start up a tech company. See more of her story.

What We Do

We take recent-model computers, donated by companies, securely erase all content, refurbish, and deploy them in schools and youth centres in Africa and Ireland.

Targeting specific local needs, we design tailor-made education projects. We train teachers, youth workers, school principals and government officials. We design educational software and develop or adapt locally relevant educational content to focus on particular subject areas. For example, the ground-breaking iMlango programme in Kenya is raising numeracy rates amongst girls in rural Kenya. In Zambia we are focused on improving student exam results in the national Computer Studies subject.

We support schools and youth centres with technical service and ongoing training. We monitor and measure our impact to learn and improve. Finally, we incentivise the return of end-of-life computers and ensure they are ethically recycled.
