Camara sends over 1,000 computers to Ethiopia

When 1,024 refurbished computers arrive in Ethiopia on July 4th it brings the total sent there this year to 5,494. Well done Camara!

The name Camara comes from the Bantu dialect of West Africa and means “Teacher”, or one who teaches with experience. Camara’s Vision is a world-class technology-enabled education accessible to all with a Mission to transform education using technology to empower disadvantaged students.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. Nelson Mandela

Camara was founded in 2005 and has already delivered technical literacy to over 1 million people. Camara is a registered charity in Ireland, the UK and the US. The hub network has grown to include two computer refurbishment hubs (Dublin and London) and seven education hubs (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Lesotho, Haiti and Ireland).

“As part of PwC’s Corporate Responsibility programme, we are delighted to support Camara’s work in improving education through technology amongst disadvantaged communities in Ireland, Jamaica and Africa. We would urge companies and individuals when disposing of computers to consider reuse before recycling as reuse provides additional social and environmental benefits.” Noel Carroll, Director of IT, PWC
