About Us

“The Turing Trust aims to promote education and training through the use of information technology in sub-Saharan Africa.  By reusing equipment we aim to provide training opportunities and skills development both in Africa and the UK whilst reducing waste and supporting a more sustainable and environmentally friendly society.”

The Turing Trust was set up in 2009 by Alan Turing’s closest family, including his great nephew James Turing, in honour of his remarkable legacy. Today we are keeping Alan’s legacy alive by providing quality technology and IT training to schools in sub-Saharan Africa.

Our operations in the UK help provide training and volunteering opportunities, and promote the transition towards a circular economy through the reuse of electrical and educational equipment.

Our sponsors are a huge part of the work we do, and the relationships we’ve developed as we’ve become part of their outreach programs have been mutually beneficial.

Donate your used computers


Piles of Restored HP Computers

Collecting and securely processing used computers, tablets, and cameras is a fundamental part of what we do. Please consider donating your used working technology to our operation, to help someone someone improve their education and to contribute to a cleaner environment.

We also take sewing machines for student courses in dressmaking. As with all donations, these must be in good working order.
