Our Aim

The Turing Trust believes in a world of equal opportunity, with technology-enabled education for all. We provide reused IT equipment, loaded with educational resources, and training to schools in sub-Saharan Africa.

Alan Turing, often thought of as the father of the computer, realised that it was a tool to help solve problems. Whilst the information age can bring significant benefits – it is vital that none are left behind.

The Turing Trust, founded by Alan Turing’s closest family, believes that bridging the digital divide in Africa would be a truly fitting way to honour his remarkable legacy.
