Help us send computers to people in need
In communities across the developing world, people are left behind because they don’t have access to computers. School computer labs sit empty. Medical clinics rely on written records. NGOs struggle to connect to international resources.
Each year companies donate thousands of their old computers to Crossroads. We refurbish them to like-new condition – reformatting, replacing parts, installing new software – and send them out full licensed and ready to use.
Crossroads currently has hundreds of high quality donated computers waiting to be refurbished. We also have volunteers ready to do the work. The only piece missing is just some funding for parts and software.
Since the computers and many of our replacement parts are donated and the labor is from volunteers it only costs £80 to fully refurbish each computer.
Would you considering helping us transform the education of a child, digitise a medical clinics operations, enable an NGO to help more people?
