TVS Donates Computers to Africa

TVS Supply Chain Solutions has donated 70 modern PCs to the Computers 4 Africa charity, to be used in schools, colleges and selected community projects throughout the African continent.

The Kent-based charity receives working computers through collections and local donations from around the UK where each computer is data-wiped and re-purposed, before being sent for use in Africa.

Jonathan Rothwell, IT Director for TVS said: “Computers 4 Africa do amazing work in some of the poorest regions of Africa, providing millions of children with access to modern IT equipment which helps to revolutionise schools. We are very privileged to support such a worthwhile charity and we look forward to seeing the case studies of how our computers are being used to help improve the education and life opportunities of youngsters in some of the poorest parts of the world.”

Computers 4 Africa is celebrating its tenth anniversary having refurbished and delivered more than 1.45 million computers to 23 African countries.

Sharon Roberts, Head of Marketing at Computers for Africa, said: “We are very thankful for the donation received from TVS Supply Chain Solutions. It’s acts of generosity like this that enables us to help the next African generation by providing modern IT equipment to children who otherwise would never get to use a computer throughout their school years.”
