South West Grid Help Residents Donate to Computers 4 Africa

08/11/2013

Computers 4 Africa have partnered with South West Grid for Learning Trust in order to set up a new and long running appeal site in Exeter for local schools.  Together the two charities will work across the South West of England to enable educational institutes to donate their working but redundant IT hardware.

“We’ve worked hard to achieve this partnership and excited about where it could lead.  The two charities get to work together and local schools benefit from a new and permanent site where they can drop off donations.  Computers 4 Africa are constantly looking for new ways to make it easier to donate and as of now they can drop off unwanted IT at the South West Grid headquarters,” – Sharon Roberts, Head of Marketing.

Our new partner could see we had limited resources to accept donations in the Exeter and the surrounding regions and have generously agreed to act on our behalf in the area.  They have stepped up to provide space for schools to drop off donations.  Their headquarters is totally secure and has been made available to us indefinitely.  We will regularly pick up any computers and associated hardware from this location.  The aim of this space is to make it easier for people in the South West of the country to donate to us, which will maximise the number of donations we receive.  This in turn will benefit more communities across Africa.

South West Grid is a not-for-profit that provides safe, secure and reliable broadband connectivity to schools. The charities share similar ideals but where Computers 4 Africa work on an international level South West Grid work much closer to home.

Julia Adamson, Education Manager, South West Grid for Learning Trust: “We are dedicated to the advancement of education through the use of technology, and we are absolutely thrilled to be working in partnership with Computers 4 Africa to support this initiative.  We know that technology has transformed teaching and learning in schools right across the SW region, Computers 4 Africa gives our community the opportunity to share that impact in African schools, colleges and community projects.  Schools in the South West can drop their old working IT kit at our office in Exeter."
