TTCS Computer Refurbishment Project

(Last update : June 1 2022)

In May 2020, the Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society (TTCS) started a computer refurbishment project. 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.
  • to non-profit organisations (since mid 2021)

In 2020, we worked with Restore a Sense of I Can (RSC) to refurbish 200 computers. To date (June 1 2022) we’ve done about over 428 computers and have well over 90+ computers to refurbish (and continue to receive more computers to refurbish).

Our project has been featured in the Newsday’s August 13 2020 article “Rescuing computers from digital oblivion”

The Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society needs funds to purchase parts to refurbish (as of December 14 2021, over 70+) computers. If you can help, you can donate funds to :

Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society,
Republic Bank Savings Account #160136544031,
U.W.I Branch, Trinidad.

Be sure to email us at [email protected] when you’ve donated so we can acknowledge and thank you!

Refurbishing computers involves several steps:

We’ve also asked you for donations of computers to refurbish and we’ve gotten over 100+ computers and some laptops.


We’ve already donated several computers to families and delivered refurbished computers to primary and secondary schools as well as a Police Youth Club and other non profit organisations and foundations.

Given the COVID-19 situation in Trinidad and Tobago, we are attempting to refurbish and distribute as many computers as we can.

However, we need your help! Here’s how:
