Donate your device to young computer recyclers – digital equity in West Auckland

Bridge the digital inequality gap in West Auckland by donating your used PC.

Rangatahi (young people) will learn to refurbish your laptop or desktop PC and keep it as part of a tech club programme. Not only that, they’ll learn the crucial skills, hacks and tricks to thrive in a digital world on their terms.

We’re looking for laptops and desktops up to 10 years old, that have in-tact screens, cameras and outer cases. Any devices that can’t be upcycled will be salvaged and used for parts. Any parts not used will be recycled.

Can you help us reach 1,000 devices?

Your impact

Some of our partner schools have up to 78% of students not set up for e-learning in future isolations/lockdowns. Your computer won’t just go to a good home, you’ll also be supporting a programme that:

  • Teaches the skills to thrive in the digital world, learn and earn online, make friends and overcome the tough stuff
  • Reduces tonnes of E-waste by diverting devices and parts. Extending the life of 1,000 devices by one year will have the equivalent environmental impact of taking 4 cars off the road for a year
  • Is led by young people – we’ll support them to use their digital superpowers to achieve their goals, whether that’s building a gaming suite for their community or starting their own businesses
  • Reduces carbon footprint by sourcing donated devices and parts locally
