Mission Statement

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.

This organization is clearly very passionate about their work around the world. They are ever evolving it seems and their ability to think outside the box is apparent. The network of individuals and organizations they work with in order to get technology to children in countries that need them is impressive. They also work closely with educators to provide content where it is needed, in multiple languages no less. I will volunteer again and again, definitely!
