Camara NUIG
First Drop-off day: Wed 3rd March, 10am-4pm
Camara NUIG will be holding its first drop-off day next Wednesday, 3 rd March, 10am-4pm. Camara is a registered Irish Charity that is dedicated to educating communities in Africa through the usage of computer hardware and software training programs.
We recycle all computers including MACs and laptops. The computers we refurbish and send to Africa have to meet these specifications:
·         Minimum 256 Megabyte RAM (Random-Access Memory)
·         Minimum 800 Megahertz Processor (Pentium III, AMD Athlon , or better)
·         Minimum 8 Gigabytes Capacity Hard Drives
·         Monitors with 15”-17” displays
·         Computer mice and keyboards ( both USB or PS/2 connectors)
·         We also accept computer speakers and head phone sets.
Dont know the spec? If in doubt, drop it in. Machines that do not meet the spec are harvested for spare parts and recycled here in Ireland.
For each computer, we ask for a donation of €20 (€9 if >10 computers are being donated). This goes towards the cost of refurbishing the computers, sending them to Africa, and recycling computers that are not suitable for Africa.
