What is Screen Share?
Screen Share exists to support, inform and advocate for digital inclusion for young refugees. We do this primarily by repurposing used laptops and gifting them to young refugees in the UK.
Here's how it works: fill out the Google form linked above. We pick your laptop up, wipe or replace the hard drive so your data is deleted, and then one of our IT volunteers refurbishes it with new hardware and software. Then we pass it to young refugees who need it to progress with their education.
So you want to donate your laptop?
Thank you so much! We accept laptops which:
Have built-in cameras
Are no more than 8 years old
Unfortunately, at this stage, we don't accept laptops which:
Don't switch on
Couldn't fit into a medium sized backpack
Have a sticker by the trackpad which says 'Celeron' or 'Pentium'
We have these restrictions becase we want young refugees to know they are infinitely valuable - they deserve a good piece of tech like any other young person. Our funding situation also means we have to invest strategically in laptops which are going to last for a good few years.
These other organisations may be able to take your older laptop and make it useful for someone!
