Where We Work
Computer Aid has provided PCs to organisations in more than 100 different countries in the last 9 years.
The majority of these have gone to schools and community organisations in sub-Saharan Africa. We have also shipped thousands to Latin America and the South Asian sub-continent.
Computer Aid International PCs are now being used in thousands of schools benefiting many hundreds of thousands of students. And it's not just schools, our PCs are also being used to enhance the capacity of not-for-profit organisations. Organisations whose work collectively encompasses a huge range of areas central to the development process including health, human rights, HIV/Aids, environment, too name a few.

Who benefits? The project will ensure an equitable balance of distribution between rural and urban schools, girls and boys institutions and ensure the inclusion of marginalised sectors, and schools for children with disabilities.
Over the coming months Computer Aid International International (through the generous financial support of a UK trust) will provide 450 professionally refurbished Pentium 3 and Pentium 4 computers needed for this project.
Computer Education Trust (CET), Swaziland
CET was established in 1998 to facilitate the productive and sustainable use of computers in Swaziland schools.
Before this project began, over 90% of students graduated from the state high school system without ever having seen, let alone had the opportunity to make use of a PC in the classroom.
