The Enlight Equips program is driven by the academic aspirations of millions of socially marginalized students around the world that are financially hindered in reaching their educational goals, due to a lack of access to basic technology and resources. Through your help and donations, we strive to provide these students with technology and supplies that have become a necessity for education in today’s world. You can help these children by donating new or used technologies, which we will refurbish and send to students in need. Additionally, traditional school supplies would also be a great asset to these students. Your donations will greatly accelerate our initiative of empowering every student in the world by providing them with the best possible opportunity to attain educational success.
In 2019, 53.6 million tonnes of e-waste was dumped globally, with only about 17.4% of dumped electronics being recycled (CBC, 2020). This is a problem, as many of these electronics could have been refurbished and repurposed for underprivileged children to use within their education. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many schools closed and shifted to online platforms where many students smoothly continued their education, however, this was not the case for all students.
