Re-use charity brings computers to Guatemala

Non-profit re-use organization NextStep Recycling (Eugene, Oregon) is shipping over 300 computer systems to Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, as part of a program established with Guatemalan authorities in 2002 to help increase computer literacy in remote regions of the country. About 30 percent of the computers refurbished by NextStep are donated internationally, with these particular machines being loaded with over $250 ($US) worth of software, including Spanish language and Mayan culture educational programs.
NextStep just established a similar service to send used computers to Ethiopia. Known as the Computer Laboratory Project, the project serves both Guatemala and Ethiopia. Since the program’s inception, over 25 computer labs have been established in rural school in Guatemala. NextStep Recycling is a 501 (c) (3) public non-profit organization.
