Donate Old Laptops for African School Children

Do you have a mostly workable laptop laying around? Are you wanting to get rid of it, but don’t know how or what to do with it?

Bring them to Mike’s. We fix them up to the best of our abilities. Then we set them up with missionaries going to Africa or South America and the missionaries give the laptops to villages so that the children can learn how to type. By typing, the children have a better chance of going to school, University and finding a job because that is a useful skill.
Because you brought your junk laptop to Mike’s Computer Repair, you have had a part in brightening a child’s future and making their life as good as it can be.

There is a school in Ghana, Africa, that was started by some Wycliffe missionaries. The first year they had about 150 students and that number has grown to 850 students at the end of last year. One of the stories we get from them, being the donators of over 20 laptops, is that the kids hurry up to eat their lunches to be the first in line to the computer lab where they can play games until their class starts.

Even if your laptop is not working, we might be able to make it work. If not, we can use them for parts to repair other computers we are sending off. We take the privacy of our donators very seriously, so we wipe all data off the hard drive and reinstall the operating system so that none of your data is retrievable.

We also want to tell you that the idea of sending laptops to Africa and South America was started by a 7 year old little girl named Leah. That was three years ago, and the program is still going strong.

See the joy you are bringing these children by the giving of your old laptop?

To drop off a laptop, please, give us a call.
