#PAYITFORWARD with BahatiGroup
We recently posted on Facebook about our PC donation to the Vilakazi Healthcare Centre.
Now, we’re reaching out to ask for your help!
The Vilikazi centre, like many others, lost vital IT equipment during the recent looting and civil unrest which affected parts of the country.
We were contacted by Neriva Wolff, who runs Life Skills classes at the centre with the amazing Women4Women charity, and asked if we could do anything to help.
Unfortunately everything in the centre was damaged & stolen due to the looting that took place.
We are so happy that the Centre has their Administrative system back up and running, and that the girls are able to learn through visual aids again.”@women4womensa
We were privileged to have the opportunity to do some good in our community by giving a little back – and now so can you.
Since our post, we have been inundated with requests for assistance from healthcare and community centres across Gauteng who were also affected by the looting.
If you have any spare, unwanted IT equipment, please get in touch and we will arrange for your equipment to be supplied to a local centre in need.
Usually, the lifespan of a computer is seven to eight years.
If your computer is less than five years old, chances are it can be put to good use by someone else.
Any equipment that is not working or is more than five years old should go to end-of-life recycling, meaning responsible destruction.
A computer recycler is a business or organization that salvages useful computer parts before breaking down what’s left, safely removing hazardous materials in the process.
75% of the fossil fuels and energy used by a computer are consumed during manufacturing.
Extending a computer’s lifespan through re-use means a better return on that initial environmental cost.
