Edmund Pinto, the Turing Trust Ghana director thanks Ross Cockburn of Reusing IT

An exciting new Edinburgh based partnership

We’re proud to announce another very exciting partnership, this time with a charity who have a wonderful ethos which is very similar to ours. Reusing IT has the goal of “advancing education and welfare anywhere in the world by sourcing, refurbishing and providing computers, related equipment and support services to educational establishments, community organisations, NGOs and others working in fields as diverse as education, recreation, environment, human rights, healthcare and welfare.”

They also aim to “provide sustainable educational, social and economic benefits to low income families and impoverished communities through the provision of computers and related equipment and thereby to assist in combating the digital divide”. They work to support low income families in the Edinburgh area and support causes in East Africa too – we’re really looking forward to extending our reach and helping them do this.

Re-using IT recently donated a very generous amount of computers and screens to our cause, which will make their way to Ghana in our next shipment. This was an especially valuable donation, as we’re often short on screens when it comes to shipping time. Please keep this in mind if you’re donating, as these will always be a huge help.

We’re sure you’ll agree that Reusing IT’s aims are very similar to ours, and we’re equally very sure that this mutually beneficial partnership will help us both work more effectively. We hope you’re all as excited as we are about this as we are, and would like to take this opportunity to thank Reusing IT enormously for their support.
