Oxford University donates computers to IT Schools Africa to enable quality education for students

15th April 2019

Oxford University donated obsolete, working IT equipment to IT Schools Africa for sustainable reuse to help provide increased access to e-Learning technology for African students. This will offer life enhancing knowledge and skills, access to further education and improved employment opportunities.

D. Gridley, Dept. of Humanities, Oxford University said: “We have been using IT Schools Africa for a number of years  and we are delighted that our computers will benefit African students and advance education and future life prospects for less fortunate students. “ IT Schools Africa offers us a secure, quality IT disposal service and I would suggest more universities consider donating . “

IT Schools Africa´╗┐´╗┐ ´╗┐is proud to be a long-term strategic partner of the EAUC (The Alliance for Sustainability Leadership in Education) based on our joint vision that education has a unique opportunity to transform lives and communities.

Amidst growing environmental challenges, sustainable consumption, production and disposal are critical to enable a better future. We are proud to be collaborating with IT Schools Africa in their mission to transform lives through access to e-Learning and their contribution to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals by enabling quality education.”
