The Island youth project are appealing to Islanders to donate any spare or unwanted computers or parts they may have laying around the home or office.
With us now living in the technology age, computers play an important part in our life, from school homework, banking, shopping, research and even fun.
The Island Youth Project has today launched “Island Computer Project“ to get more computers in homes that don’t have them.
Simon Forbes, the project founder said:
“We fix and refurbish computers from donated parts, we recycle them so that they stay in the local community and are given away free to the younger generation who need a PC but can’t afford one, the project is also great for the environment and is a much better option than allowing them to go to landfill in other countries.”
“If you can help us make some of the younger generation happy, please get in contact. We can arrange collection of all donated items, if you donate equipment on behalf of an island business we will provide you with free advertising on the Island Computer Project in exchange for your generosity.”
