Donate your gently used laptop to improve our computer course

Our six-month computer course at the WAVS school is extremely popular. In our lone computer classroom, we have just 10 computers – and they get used a lot. Each day, there are 5 two-hour classes, beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m. It’s not wonder students in Guinea-Bissau really want to learn how to use computers – it’s a skill that opens up lots of new job opportunities.

We need to increase the number of computers in our classroom. We also hope to add more computers to our Cyber cafe – one of the only places in town where students and community residents can access the Internet. To do this, we need your help. Do you have a laptop PC that runs at least Windows XP and is no more than three years old and does not have any major problems? If you would like to donate it to the school, let us know at Or would you consider donating $500 so that we can purchase a new laptop that will help serve students and teachers in Guinea-Bissau? You can do that here. (We’re looking for laptops instead of desktops because they are easier to transport and more energy efficient).

Thanks in advance for your partnership as we work together to bring hope and opportunity to one of the world’s smallest and poorest countries.
