The pandemic is hitting many families hard, trying to juggle home-schooling with other responsibilities. This is made even harder when children do not have the equipment they need to attend their classes remotely. Many families just cannot afford the cost involved and their children are falling behind. The 'digital divide' is opening ever wider and is likely to continue well after the current crisis.
The government is providing laptops to schools to loan out to their children, but teachers say the need will far exceed the supply. Rotary is asking you to help fill this gap by donating unwanted laptops to its LAPTOPS4SCHOOLS project. All the donated devices will be properly handled, refreshed and made suitable for children to use.
LAPTOPS4SCHOOLS supports children based in the North West of England.
Please explore our website and see how easy it is to arrange for your unwanted laptop to find a new deserving home.
