Donate your computers and technology in 3 easy steps

Step 1

Securely package your laptops, desktops and technology into cardboard boxes and scroll down to arrange a collection from your address or schedule a date to drop-off at our Processing Centre in Canterbury. Write your booking reference number on all your boxes.

Step 2

At our Processing Centre, our Tech Team check and refurbish your items in line with Microsoft Refurbisher standards. All data on devices are securely wiped and we issue you an e-certificate of data wipe. Suitable devices are shipped to projects in Africa while others are sent to our charity shop.

Step 3

When your devices arrive in Africa, they are distributed to students and teachers to supplement their teaching and learning needs. We also publish detailed impact reports on our website when received from our projects.
