CHILDREN in Africa have been given 100 computers by a Fareham company.

Waste management specialist Cleansing Service Group donated the PCs after upgrading its technology.

It sent the computers via Computer4Africa, a social enterprise which sends them out across Africa.

Sue Boxall, Computers4Africa business liaison manager, said: ‘The 100 PCs donated will go on to give 2,000 African children the opportunity of a broader IT education.’

As CSG aims to help reduce landfill by helping its customers recycle more, the company is hoping to send more of its computers to Africa in the future.

IT manager Dan Gailer said: ‘Ensuring the units are recycled also helps improve sustainability by reducing the use of valuable raw materials.’
