World Computer Exchange's mission is to bridge the digital divide for the world's poorest youth by collecting donated, working computers and building the capacity of schools and youth organizations in developing countries to connect and maintain them. By reutilizing computer equipment, we help the environment by keeping computers out of landfills.
WCE utilizes volunteers in 30 cities in the US and other countries to collect working computers to be shipped to schools and organizations serving youth in developing countries. We also utilize online volunteers to assist our partner organizations in developing countries in planning and fundraising for a shipment of computers, managing telecentres to support maintenance of the computers, and developing content relevant to the local culture. Our ultimate goal is to connect youth and schools in various parts of the world to each other via the internet.
