We want to build a world where everyone has equal access to technology
Computer Aid International aim to empower the developing world by providing access, education, implementing technology, and supporting environmentally responsible solutions
Since 1997 we have helped over 14.5 million people worldwide. We have provided over 260,000 computers in over 100 countries, enabling over 1 billion hours of learning
The longest-running ICT for Development charity
We believe that technology has become a necessity for education because it creates a better learning environment. Computers allow easy communication and access to educational resources. Today Computer Aid is one of the leading ICT4D organizations in the world.
We make this happen by
Providing access to low-cost computers and software for non-profit organisations
Training teachers in ICT skills to improve their confidence when teaching
Monitoring and evaluating our projects with impact-based reporting
Placing our projects in areas where they will have the biggest impact
Offering a secure IT disposal service to help companies tackle eWaste
Recycling electronic waste at the end of its usable life
In the UK and Europe, we work with organisations to reuse their computers and accessories. We give ICT equipment a second life through our partners and projects around the world. By offering a secure IT disposal service we can help companies to ethically dispose of their spare tech while remaining compliant with GDPR, WEEE, and Hazardous Waste regulations.
The challenge is enormous, but our ambition is huge. Over the last 20 years, we have seen how ICT4D can provide amazing opportunities, donate today to help us close the digital divide for good.

Our Solar Learning Labs are designed to provide a sustainable solution for schools without access to computers
"The fact that someone has finally considered Cazucá a priority is not only important because of the technology and training provided, but also because of the optimism it inspires in the entire community."
"I have lived, studied and now work in South Africa and have had the privilege to interact with different people from across the world. I've realised that we all need ICT no matter the industry or sector."
"Thanks to this new lab, more than a 1000 youth will have a space to learn computer skills and robotics focusing on improving STEM learning and developing 21st-century skills, connecting them with a new world of opportunities and experience!"
"This (hub) will help increase their mentality of using technology tools in term of personal growth, also help them understand how to use a computer, how to use social media to communicate. It will also help them to control their own businesses through the using of technology aid in their environment."
