Computer Aid works to combat poverty and improve education through practical ICT solutions.We have helped thousands of people access the tools they need for development and professionally refurbished almost 200,000 PCs for re-use, with both social and environmental benefits
We have sent PCs and laptops to schools, hospitals and charities in over 100 different countries around the world, predominantly in Africa and Latin America. Our work has helped thousands of people access vital tools to improve their education, health and development prospects.
With ICT, children can gain vital employment skills, doctors can connect with each other, entrepreneurs can find market information and farmers can plan their harvest with accurate weather information.
We also work to develop innovotive ICT solutions to overcome the challenges faced in rural and isolated communities. ZubaBox is a solar powered ICT hub, housed within a 20ft shipping container with 11 PCs running from a single base unit using low powered computing technology. The telemedicine project delivers PCs, laptops, scanners, digital cameras and printers to rural doctors to enable them to connect with distant specialists, resulting in second opinions and advice which can save lives.
We always work with local partner organisations to make sure that every PC we send is used effectively and that the necessary training and technical support is available. To date we have shipped almost 200,000 PCs for re-use and have helped thousands of people access the tools they need to address the challenges faced within their communities, making Computer Aid the world’s largest and most experienced ICT for development provider.
