Our 40ft container has arrived in Malawi
We are delighted to share the news that our 40ft container, with over 1300 computers, has arrived safely in Malawi. The container left our premises in Edinburgh at the end of February, taking 12 weeks to arrive at its destination. The baton now passes to our amazing partners in Malawi, Centre for Youth and Development. The team were ready and waiting for the container to arrive and a fantastic team of staff and volunteers made light work of unloading it. The team will now be testing all the kit before deploying it in schools. The computers in this shipment will benefit tens of thousands of students, helping them to learn digital skills but also giving then access to a wealth of information to support their studies in all subjects.
Thanks to all those in the UK who have helped us to send these computers to Malawi – we look forward to updating you as they are deployed in schools in Malawi.
Over 1300 PCs on their way to schools in Malawi
A HUGE thank you to all of our incredible (and v. strong!) volunteers who helped out this weekend loading our 40' container that is on it's way to Malawi. We truly couldn't have done it without such fantastic support from such a amazing bunch - not just in packing the container, but in all the donation, collection and refurbishment of PCs that has made this possible. Thanks to you and to all of our IT donors we've packed over 1,300 PCs that will enable tens of thousands of students to learn ICT skills.
Thank you all so much!!
