ICT Conference attendees raise money for IT in African Schools

ICTConference attendees raise money
for IT in African Schools

Following the bucket collections held at the conferences in Bristol and Torquay during July, over £280 has been donated to IT Schools Africa.

Richard Harrison, Chief Operating Officer for SWGfL has presented the cheque to Phil Layton, UK Development Manager of IT Schools Africa.

Richard Harrison spoke warmly of the work of IT Schools Africa. “I would like to thank all the attendees of the ICT Conferences for their support of this cause,” he said, “I would also encourage all schools to consider IT Schools Africa when disposing of any ICT equipment in the future. It is vital for the future of the nations of Africa that children do have access to ICT equipment so that they can learn about and participate in the modern world on equal terms.”

IT Schools Africa
is a UK-based charity which delivers recycled computers to African schools to improve education & cross-cultural communication. The charity works with its sister charity CFAS (Computers For African Schools) in several African countries, where it has set up NGOs that are responsible for selecting schools, distributing computers, training teachers and providing ongoing support. They also receive shipments, test equipment and carry out any necessary repairs.
