CARE (Collect And Recycle Ecologically) Computers For Developing Countries is a Ghana based NGO that works to assist in the education and development of the less privileged secondary/tertiary school student of the developing country, and to help address the environmental issues of dumping of computer waste.
CARE desires to help bridge the gap between the student in the developming country and his/her counterpart in the developed country through the use of information technology (IT) as well as leading the way in encouraging others to responsibly manage waste (irreparable PC’s) in a worldwide acceptable manner through the adoption of W.E.E.E legislation.
Objectives and Policies
- To advance the education of the pupils in schools in developing countries by providing and assisting in the provision of computers
- To promote for the benefit of the public the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment
- To facilitate the learning and exchange of information on different countries cultures
CARE takes redundant ICT equipment and uses this opportunity not only to help school children in Ghana with their study of ICT and access to PC’s in general, but also to help the environment by recycling (using approved and acceptable international standards) and raising environmental awareness.
