Help A Child – Donate your Company’s old Computers
There are schools throughout the country struggling to provide effective home learning to their poorer pupils. Despite teachers efforts, kids without a computer or online access are getting behind on their studies, they simply do not have the same access to online educational resources as their wealthier friends. With your support, Every Child Online’s goal is to help close this educational gap and ensure all our children have the correct equipment to learn from home. We need the support of UK companies and individuals, supporting our funding efforts and donating your unused equipment will have a tremendous impact on the education of our children.
You’re ready to get rid of some old equipment. How can you do that safely?.
Once you’ve upgraded your businesses computer equipment, you may be wondering what to do with your old hardware. Many companies have a policy whereby old computers cycle down to other, less critical areas of the business.

Not all kids have computers.
With schools closed and pupils studying online at home, it is important to recognise the social gap in access to technology. Coronavirus has revealed the scale of the digital divide and has taken school leaders by surprise.
As well as missing out on learning, those without online connections miss “the sense of belonging” from staying in touch with their friends and teachers. Your organisation can help us do something about this 21st centre issue. If you can’t donate old computer equipment then maybe you can help us to raise funds for new software, monitors, the cost of data and other computer accessories needed.
