What We Do
World Computer Exchange believes that exposing youth in developing countries to a 21st century education by bridging the digital divide makes for a better world. Being better educated means that these youth will be more equipped to fight poverty, disease, injustice and instability.
Our mission is to reduce the digital divide for youth in developing countries; to use our global network of partnerships to enhance communities in these countries; and to promote the reuse of electronic equipment and its ultimate disposal in an environmentally responsible manner.
