Main aim of the charity
Refurbishing decommissioned PC's for educational institutions/ Homeless shelters / orphanage /
How the employee got involved and why
We realized that a lot of equipment that was being discarded could be refurbished and donated to institutions in need. Schools, Orphanages, Homeless Shelters, etc. We stepped forward, developed a compliant wiping and refurbishing process and started donating them.
What work does the employee do for charity?
We wipe any information the computers may have using US Department of defense standards. We then install open Source operative system as well as free office suite software. We clean them and disinfect them. Then we work with different schools, orphanages and homeless shelters in need of computers. We donate them and help them set them up in person.
What impact would winning have on the charity?
There are many computers that need parts in order to be repaired, screens, keyboards, power supplies, batteries, etc. The money would allow us to donate more computers than we currently can.
What impact would winning have on the employee?
We believe we make a significant impact on the people that receive these donations. By bringing technology, education and opportunities to people that would otherwise not have access to it. We enable them to a better future. Nothing more rewarding than to help others. The impact this would have on us is to bring more light to programs like these. And to be able to improve the process. We are now seeing requests come in from literally all over the world.
