Computer Aid International
Regular system upgrades leave many commercial organisations with the problem of secure disposal of computer hardware, whilst academic and charitable institutions in the developing world struggle with the costs of acquiring digital technologies.
A solution to both problems is now available through the commendable work of a UK based charity, Computer Aid International, which refurbishes computers for re-use in schools and community organisations in developing countries.
The charity accepts full legal liability for all equipment and guarantees to permanently wipe all data off hard disks, ensuring that donations meet both the environmental and data security obligations of the disposing organisation.
Recipients pay a nominal charge to cover handling and shipping costs only, for high quality Pentium systems.
Any organisation interested in either donating or acquiring computers through Computer Aid International should visit the website at: www.computeraid.org/
