Computer Aid teams up with AIDS charity

Evidence of how important Computer Aid's donated PCs can be to developing countries is shown by the IT charity's recent partnership with the Berkshire-based CfBT Education trust. The organisations have teamed up to donate 141 PCs, 32 laptops and 43 servers to schools and community organisations to help in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

The PCs, donated by CfBT, will go to towns such as Kiberia in Kenya - recognised as the largest slum in Africa and home to some of the most deprived communities in Kenya. One of the group’s key projects is the Primary School Action for Better Health (PSABH) HIV education programme which aims to provide teachers and schools with the tools to educate pupils about HIV/AIDS prevention.
