Computers 4 Africa and TVS Supply Chain Solutions are linked through their Vision and Values; with the joint purposes of embracing change, encouraging learning and making a difference by working together.
Following a recent donation of IT equipment 1680 children (during the first year) will have the chance to be taught IT, this provides increased career and job opportunities as students are taught IT and are empowered to make choices.
The Kent-based charity receives working computers through collections and drop off point around the UK; the donors are given piece of mind as each computer is securely data-wiped (to MOD standard), compliance with the Environment Agency WEEE directive is met and Corporate Social Responsibility targets neared.
Jonathan Rothwell, IT Director for TVS said: “Computers 4 Africa does amazing work in some of the poorest regions of Africa, providing children with access to modern IT equipment which helps to revolutionise schools. We are very privileged to support such a worthwhile charity and we look forward to seeing the case studies of how our computers are being used to help improve the education and life opportunities of youngsters in some of the poorest parts of the world.”
Sharon Roberts, from Computers 4 Africa, said: “We are very thankful for the donation received from TVS Supply Chain Solutions. Its acts of generosity like this that enables us to empower the next generation in Africa. By providing IT equipment to students who otherwise would never get to use a computer, opportunities for further education with increased career options becomes a reality ”
