The Malta Trust Foundation is currently working on the project entitled “Your Device, Your Right” (YDYR), the aim of the YDYR project is to provide second-hand laptops/tablets to disadvantaged students of all ages, to further their education, in cases where the families for these may not be able to purchase.
Based on a recent survey conducted by MISCO, it was established that around 11,000 people are educationally disadvantaged in this respect and are struggling to keep up with their online studies as they do not own a device. To date, the YDYR project has received over 450 referral from Heads of State Schools and social workers, requesting laptops for pupils struggling to keep up with their online studies.
The dual aim of this project is to provide digital inclusion to those struggling to keep up with online studies and at the same time reducing e-waste.
Therefore on behalf of the Malta Trust Foundation we are seeking donations of second-hand laptops and other devices that are no longer being used by businesses and individuals. The devices are then refurbished by technical people.
If you have any deivice/devices that you may no longer use, kindly contact the Malta Chamber of SMEs on to make arrangements for either collection or delivery. We respectfully request that the power lead is provided with the device.
