Computer and Laptop Donation

Old computer donation is eco-friendly...

Individuals and companies constantly go in for new computers, PCs and laptops, thereby rendering old products surplus. By donating you are keeping e-waste away from land-fill dumps and thus are preventing contamination of soil by chemicals and heavy metals. Further, by reusing a used computer, recycling is achieved since natural resources are saved, which would have been otherwise spent to produce a new unit.

Donate used PCs & laptops to charities...

For the goal of a 'Digital India' to succeed, people at large need to gain computer skills. Especially underprivileged students, people and communities who are unable to afford new computers would find donated computers and laptops to be a great boon. Schools, vocational training centres, low-income families and senior citizens can all benefit.
