About 9% of children in the UK – up to 1.8 million – do not have access to a laptop, desktop or tablet at home. Let’s help these kids in London.
As you may have seen, we’ve just launched a new campaign to support eight community organisations across London who are collecting, fixing and distributing laptops to school children across the city. You can find the all the details here:
If you’d like to support the campaign, there are three ways you can help out:
Support our crowdfunder to help us repair and refurbish devices donated to our community partners
Donate any unused laptop(s) you have lying around to your local community organisation - find in the top link, above
Volunteer to repair donated laptops, preparing them for reuse (keep reading for more on this)
If you’d like to help repair donated laptops, you’re in the right place! We’re still working on our helpdesk system, which we’ll use co-ordinate this work. But in the meantime, please reply to this topic to let us know that you’re interested and in which area of London you’re based.
A huge thanks to everyone who’s already helped out
