The Rotary Club of Crawley, we are launching an initiative to raise funds for underprivileged children around the world. The proceeds raised will be used to provide underprivileged and conscientious children with the items that currently stop them from receiving an education.
The location of the student is not limited, however we have potential project partners (via local Rotary Clubs) in Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, East Timor, Indonesia, the Philippines and Nepal.
Millions of phones are thrown away around the world each year, and even more are hiding away in drawers. We are collecting smart phones or tablets that are off contract and/or with broken screens (but still in working order) for recycling. The initial goal is to collect 100 phones before Christmas and raise $5,000.
Funds may be used to:
- Provide a young Ugandan aids orphan a mattress or uniform to attend school
- Provide a child from rural WA a scholarship to attend school in another town
- Provide school books and lighting in a Nairobi slum.
Please help us by donating your old smart phone or tablet; giving your device a new life and at the same time helping underprivileged students around the world receive an education.
If you or anyone you know can donate, simply provide me with the contact details and the best time/location to pick up your old device.
