Empowering the developing world by providing access, education, implementing technology, and supporting environmentally responsible solutions
Since 1997 we have helped over 14.5 million people worldwide. We have provided over 260,000 computers in over 100 countries, enabling over 1 billion hours of learning.
We believe that technology has become a necessity for education because it creates a better learning environment. Computers allow easy communication and access to educational resources. Today Computer Aid is one of the leading ICT4D organizations in the world.
The challenge is enormous, but our ambition is huge. Over the last 20 years, we have seen how ICT4D can provide amazing opportunities, donate today to help us close the digital divide for good.
In partnership with PrinterCartridge Recycling Ltd a leading recycling company, we have developed a scheme to turn your empty inkjet cartridges, mobile phones and surplus unused cartridges into valuable funds to help continue our work.
