Waste Management Company Donates Computers to Africa

13 April 2012 by CSG

Waste management specialist Cleansing Service Group (CSG) has donated over 100 computers to help further the education of children in Africa.

Resulting from an in-house technology refresh, the PC’s have been donated to Computer4Africa, a social enterprise which sends unwanted computers to some of world’s poorest nations.

The computers will be sent to schools and community projects in Africa to enable children to learn and use Information & Communication Technology (ICT), a skill which children in the UK are taught from a young age.

ICT has a massive impact in Africa where, by having access to educational resources online and from around the world, a workforce is being trained which will enable the continent’s nations to compete in the global marketplace.

Sue Boxall, Computers4Africa business liaison manager said: “The team at Computers 4 Africa would like to pass on our heartfelt thanks to all at CSG for their donation. The 100 PC’s donated will go on to give 2000 African children the opportunity of a broader IT based education.”

CSG’s IT manager Dan Gailer said: “We are delighted to be able to help the people of Africa by donating the equipment we no longer need. Ensuring the units are recycled also helps improve sustainability by reducing the use of valuable raw materials.”

The company hopes to be able to provide more computers to this very worthwhile cause in the future.

Hampshire-based CSG, which is one of the UK waste industry’s fastest growing companies, is a leading provider of Total Waste Management (TWM) services, helping many of its customers to maximise recycling opportunities, reduce the volume of waste going to landfill and, in many instances, save money.
