The Source Skills Academy, a training provider in Sheffield, has donated 50 computers to develop the education of African Communities.
The donation came from Managing Director Ann Cadman after she heard about the fantastic work Computers 4 Africa does to improve education in poverty stricken areas.
Ann Cadman said: "Computers 4 Africa is an inspirational organisation that pioneers re-using over recycling. As a charity ourselves, we work to support the local community and are proud to offer support through Computers 4 Africa to communities overseas."
The Source Skills Academy is dedicated to supporting individuals and businesses across South Yorkshire, offering a personal approach to help people of all ages and backgrounds, improving their skills, knowledge and confidence.
Computers 4 Africa would like to urge schools, businesses, and individuals to choose reuse over recycle. Computers 4 Africa transforms communities across Africa, by accepting working redundant P.C's and IT equipment from individuals, corporates and other organisations in the U.K. Once securely data wiped, the donated computers are then shipped out to schools, colleges, libraries, clinics and specific projects in Africa. With Computers 4 Africa, computers on their way to the tip or recycling centre could be just the tool to transform a child's life forever and schools, colleges, universities, businesses and local communities across our region can help support this fantastic scheme.
Lowri Turner, Media Manager at Computers 4 Africa, said: "The computers that Source Skills Academy have donated will have a massive impact with the capacity to equip 2 African schools with IT suites. Here at Computers 4 Africa we are grateful that the work they do in helping people achieve their potential which will be mirrored in our work in Africa"
