Computer Aid International

Founded in 1997 by Tony Roberts, Computer Aid International aimed to solve two problems: the growing problem of e-waste, and the inequality of ICT education. In the past 20 years we’ve seen how technology can impact lives and benefit education, we will continue our work to close the digital divide.

Founded 1997

  • Mission statement

    We are working towards a world where everyone has equal access to ICT. We aim to achieve this by offering secure IT disposal for organisations who want to donate equipment, subsidising computers for non-profits worldwide, and running educational projects to improve ICT education.

  • Aims

    Computer Aid International aims to:

    • End the digital divide and ensure everyone has access to technology.
    • Reduce the growing issue of e-waste by reusing as much as possible and ethically recycling equipment once it's at the end of its life.
