Currently U.S. businesses pay for the disposal of some twenty million low-end computers every year. Though the computer equipment is serviceable for those with less sophisticated needs, it is melted down or buried in landfills. These computers would greatly assist Africa and it's growing need for information technology. This project would affect more than 5000 primary and secondary school children per year through computer donations and training seminars.
The goal of the project is to supply at least one computer to every classroom in sub-Saharan Africa with Internet access if possible by 2020. Our long-term goal is to reach the most remote areas of Uganda and other African countries in later years.
We have sent our first 94 PCs and 6 printers in 2002 and have begun distributing them as well as providing training seminars in schools in Kampala, Uganda. We hope to expand this in coming years.
