Cornell Computer Reuse Association
The CCRA donates computers and other technology to humanitarian organizations...
The Cornell Computer Reuse Association works to donate computers and other technology to humanitarian organizations in both the local community of Ithaca as well as the developing world. Through collection, refurbishment and then donation the association has given to community centers, orphanages, schools and other organizations around the world. The association promotes the school’s sustainability mission by reducing the amount of technology-related waste that the school creates, as well as grants technological resources to people in need. The computers are given to communities that utilize them to further educational opportunities they would not otherwise have without access to the technology. Whenever possible, the CCRA provides technical assistance to the communities that are receiving these donations so that the computers’ use and longevity can be maximized. The Association has donated to many different international locations including South Africa, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Nicaragua, and Jamaica.
