Redressing the Balance

Computers 4 Crossroads

How cool is this???!!!

Crossroads School, our partner school in Uganda, is in the midst of preparing a new curriculum and is struggling with IT at the moment. Well, you can imagine our joy when Liz, our secretary at Global Challenge, received this email:

Dear Global Challenge team,

We receive donations of surplus computer equipment, provide secure data destruction, computer recycling and reuse. We then donate the refurbished laptops, tablets and computers on to charities and other beneficiaries. Please see our website: www.computers4charity.org

We would like to donate 2 free laptops to support your educational projects in Uganda. Would these be of use? We were actually previously known as Computers 4 Africa so try to still support education within Africa as much as we can.

If so, we would like to invite a representative of the Global Challenge to collect the laptops from our appeal site……………………………….Full PPE will be worn and will be available.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes

Emillie Hobden

Angela, one of the trustees at Global Challenge, felt honoured and blessed to collect the two laptops as well as two laptop bags! Click here to see her in action! https://www.facebook.com/computers4charity/videos/291276899407371/

What a kind and generous offer and what an amazing difference these surplus refurbished computers will make to a generation of pupils at Crossroads School!

Here is some information about Computers 4 Charity, based in Kent, the home county of Global Challenge:

Computers 4 Charity is the ‘Working Name’ of a partnership between Digital Pipeline and Digital Pipeline Computers, and a registered charity operating as a social enterprise. We provide 100% data destruction, track and trace, environmentally responsible re-use and give a whole new dimension to corporate community involvement.

Our beneficiaries include hospices, unemployed veterans and charity volunteers right here in the UK. We also work through UK charities who support schools in Africa, to whom we donate laptops at our events. We estimate that 1.3 million children in Africa receive a World Class education through our computers.

We were founded by Microsoft and personally supported by Bill Gates (see his video message on our web site). Today, we have evolved into a leading technology charity, providing hundreds of thousands of PCs across the UK and developing countries.

Our holistic approach to computer refurbishment is designed around sustainability.
