This year we have chosen to support the organization CESA, Computer Education in South Africa, which works to give children in southern Africa a better education by donating computers and providing computer skills. The association consists of a group of IT students from Chalmers who each summer go down to Africa to make a difference on the spot.
The project was started in 2008 by Samuel Bengmark, who was the program manager at the IT program. Since then they have made 10 trips to KwaZulu-Natal and Durban. In the first trip, 212 computers were installed in 11 different schools, giving about 10,000 students access to computers. The goal is to donate 300 computers every year, but some years they focus more on education at schools that already have computers. This year, CESA will devote more resources to computer recycling.
CESA collaborates with the Star for Life organization, which works at South African and Namibian schools to prevent the spread of AIDS.
If you also want to join this initiative, you can donate your old computers to this year's project. Together we can make a big difference!
