Donate Your Used Laptops to Irish Schools

Irish charity Camara Ireland has issued an appeal for donations of laptops for use in Irish schools. There has been a surge in demand for Camara’s educational technology packages and the charity has not yet sourced enough used laptops to meet this demand.

With its waiting list growing by the day, Camara is appealing to all organisations and individuals to consider donating their end of life laptops for reuse in the education of Irish students.

“I would urge people to consider Camara for reuse of their laptops,” said Ciaran Cannon TD, Minister for Training and Skills and a supporter of Camara Ireland. “The package they provide makes an important impact in our schools, helping to provide young people with vital access to technology.”

The social enterprise, founded in 2010, provides reused laptops and teacher training to disadvantaged Irish schools at 25% of the price of a new laptop. Camara Ireland has supplied over 900 computers to schools this year, training nearly 400 educators in the process.

On receipt of his school’s recent delivery, Damien Fallon, Principal of Killavullen N.S. in Cork, said: “The laptops have landed! They’re perfect. Thank you. You really are changing the world, click by click.”

To donate computers to Camara, please go to www.camara.org or call 01-652 2673.
