Thurnham School sends computers to Africa
Friday 25th July 2014
Thanks to Thurnham Infants School, Bearsted, more than 3,000 children in Africa have had access to modern technology for the first time.
Computers 4 Africa has been working with the school for more than seven years, recently taking an assembly and attending the Friends of Thurnham coffee morning.
The assembly featured a quiz, and a demonstration of footballs made from carrier bags and a crisp wrapper bowl, both used by children in Africa.
At the coffee morning, representatives from the charity chatted with parents, staff, governors and friends of the school about the difference Thurnham School has made to children in Africa. The school made a further donation of laptops and Computers 4 Africa presented Natalie Saunders with an African village football.
Computers 4 Africa accepts working redundant PCs and IT equipment from individuals, businesses and organisations. Data is securely wiped and the computers are then shipped out to schools, colleges, libraries, clinics and specific projects in Africa.
