Appeal for laptops

April 18, 2011 by flibs. 0 comments

An acquaintance of mine, Chris John, will be traveling out to Nicaragua on the 5th of June for 3 weeks.  He is taking a stack of laptops with him, and his aim is to teach children the basics of using office tools – word processing, spreadsheets, presentations etc.

He has some laptops already, but he has room to take 5 more.

If you have an old laptop you no longer want it would be great to see it put to good use rather than it being consigned to the rubbish tip or the bottom of the bedroom cupboard. Chris is resident in the UK, so obviously this is only really applicable to fellow UK residents.

The trip is being arranged in association with the Peace and Hope Trust.

If you would like to send your laptop to Nicaragua with Chris please:

  • Make sure it’s in good working order
  • It has a clean installation of an operating system which is capable of running OpenOffice (even better if you can install OpenOffice as well)
  • Contact me directly to check there is still room for it in the luggage and that your laptop is suitable.

Thanks one and all.
