Computers for Cameroon
In Cameroon, only 20% of students have access to computers. What they do have access to are P2's and old P3's.  Rural communities have access to one laptop - when it is in that community.  Where internet access is available it costs $1 per hour, a pretty large fee considering the annual income in Cameroon.  Of all the gaps between northern and southern nations when it comes to sustainable development, the latest and most overlooked is the IT gap. Why not recyle our e-waste to benefit others in Cameroon rather than fill our landfills with this waste?

We are working in conjucntion with Techcefacos, an NGO based in Cameroon. Information on them can be found at :
