Following an infrastructure upgrade, Aurion Learning has donated computer hardware equipment to the Belfast base of Camara. The equipment will be refurbished and sent to Africa to help improve education in disadvantaged communities.
Camara is an international organisation devoted to improving education and livelihood skills through technology in disadvantaged communities all around the world.
On this occasion, Aurion Learning was able to donate three computer towers and a keyboard, with hopes to donate more equipment in the future. Each computer reused by Camara is placed in a low income school and used by 21 children. The equipment will soon be shipped to one of Camara’s Education Hubs in Lesotho and distributed to a local school or E-Learning Centre.
Speaking about the recent donation, Ciaran O’Hare, Director of Aurion Learning said:
“As part of our responsibility to give back to the community, we hope that this small donation will help children in disadvantaged communities gain educational opportunities to learn and develop new skills.”
Since their inception in 2006, 500,000 children in poor communities have become digitally literate due to the work of Camara.
