The WTA has a goal of distributing over 1000 computers in 2018 to low-resource schools and students in the Washington DC area (DMV), as well as impoverished schools in Tanzania. We need your help to reach this goal. Please consider asking your employer to recycle their electronics with the WTA. Consider making a tax deductible cash donation to help us provide computers to families for free.
The WTA works closely with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Federal Government’s “Computers for Learning” program, Intel Corporation, District of Columbia government, and other generous corporations to “Bridge the Digital Divide” in USA schools. Since 2000, the WTA has trained over 118 schools in Oregon, Washington State, Maryland and Washington DC to refurbish and place technology into their schools, where youth to support it and become teacher’s aids in their technology classes.
We accept computer donations from individuals and corporations worldwide. If you are within 50 miles of Washington DC and have 10 or more computers to provide, our team will pick them up, provide you a tax-deductible receipt, securely scrub any left-over data, refurbish it and provide it to needy schools and students. We can even bring a team into your facility to securely remove any hard drives and other data-carrying hardware before you donate it — all at no cost to you!
