The aid project Labdoo.org is a worldwide active NGO and private initiative of volunteers. The project collects unused, discarded laptops, tablets or eBook readers for educational projects in Germany and abroad, including African schools. Labdoo.org would like to use the IT donations worldwide to reduce the "digital divide" in an ecologically responsible way and to give children access to IT and education. So-called "flight sponsors" transport donated IT equipment in a carbon-neutral way to other countries as part of a trip that takes place anyway and hand it over there so that schools and children's and youth projects ("Edoovillages") all over the world can be supported free of charge. Flight sponsors also ensure the return transport of IT equipment if it can no longer be used at some point and needs to be disposed of professionally in Europe. At www.labdoo.org/de every donor can track where his or her donated equipment will be used again. Labdoo's volunteers take care of the data deletion of the donated devices according to the recommendations of the BSI (German Federal Office for Information Security).
The aim of the project is to provide children and young people all over the world with access to IT and education with the help of IT donations, thus reducing the "digital divide" in an ecological way. Labdoo also provides child-friendly content on laptops in different languages.
Pupils and refugees in over 1,500 schools worldwide. Orphanages and projects that aim to promote the education of children and young people receive computers.
For Labdoo, the biggest challenge is to find flight or transport sponsors to deliver the collected laptops or similar technical equipment to the recipient schools in the target area.
The Ajimba headquarters in Bremen Findorff acts as a receiving office for the laptop donation. Ajimba also organizes and conducts workshops at Ajimba to delete the laptops from the old data and upload new learning content. Together with volunteers, the equipment is prepared for transport. Another important contribution of Ajimba is the organisation of the transport of laptop donations to the target areas. Guests can voluntarily take equipment to Southern Africa and hand it in to schools and projects on site. Ajimba is responsable for the organisation process.
Sure, guests can visit one of the local schools and give a huge impact with their knowledge to the education of children and young people. Or you can become a flight or transport sponsor yourself and help to send a donated laptop to our contact person in the chosen destination.
