Computers for Congo

Computers for Congo was founded to help bridge the technology gap in the Democratic Republic of Congo by providing computers from Australia. They aim to gather desktops and laptops that are about to be discarded by various organisations, schools, and businesses. These are then erased, repaired (if needed), re-formatted, tested, and sent to the DRC where they work with local partners to distribute the computers to those most in need through schools, training centers, and hospitals. Over time, this will help improve education, provide more jobs, connect people with the online community and increase the quality of life in the area.
