In January 2011 Computers 4 Africa started merging with Digital Pipeline. The organisations recognised a joint purpose and pooled resources and efforts to bridge the digital divide internationally. The restructured and enlarged organisation will be known as Digital Pipeline and retains Computers 4 Africa as a working name for working in Africa.
Our mission is to help lift Africa out of the poverty trap by equipping the next generation with the technology and support to work in a global environment. This is the 21st-century version of “If you give a hungry man a fish, you feed him for a day, but if you teach him how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.” We do this by supplying the best quality and value computers in the countries in which we operate.
At our central processing unit in Kent, we receive working redundant computers through collections and local donations from around the UK.
We aim to make modern IT available to those who do not have easy access to technology, greatly enhancing their ability to learn, work and progress!
