The Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society (TTCS) has started a computer refurbishment project in late May 2020. The goal of this project is, via our partners, to make available computers for school students to continue their education being done online due to COVID-19.
We are working with Restore a Sense of I Can (RSC) to refurbish computers. To date (August 11, 2020) we’ve done about 30 computers and have about 50 more computers to refurbish, from cleaning computers to installing Solid State Drives, installing Windows 10 Education, installing Free and Open Source Software) to deliver back to RSC. We’ve also asked you for donations of computers to refurbish and one company donated 9 computers and several laptops and another individual donated several RAM sticks. You can read more in Newsday’s August 13 2020 article “Rescuing computers from digital oblivion”
Given the COVID-19 situation in Trinidad and Tobago, we are attempting to refurbish computers to return to RSC as soon as possible.
However, we need your help!
