What we need….can any one reading this blog help?

This project has always been about helping Pakati Primary and Secondary schools IT equipment, to bring the education of their students into the modern, internet age.

Several schools in the area have computers already, so Pakati staff feel they and their students are being disadvantaged, left behind. Many have access to mobile devices even out in the rural areas, but would benefit greatly from greater knowledge of computers, not least as a medium for learning.

Access to better educational methods, ways of teaching and learning, and to information are things we in the developed world take for granted (along with clean water and free education for example).


We need computers and/or laptops but ones which been cleaned up and with at least Windows 7 software on it. Please let me know through here or any of the links below:
