Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Camara is a charitable organisation that sends refurbished computers from Ireland to schools and other educational institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa. Donations are accepted from individuals, and in addition, a corporate recycling programme issues recycling certificates to businesses who dispose of used computers with them. Camara sent 84 volunteers to Sub-Saharan Africa in summer 2008 to help install the computers and train teachers and students in their use. Since its inception in 2005 Camara has delivered 12,342 computers to schools across seven countries. Camara also provides comprehensive teacher training, maintenance, and recycling. Local Digital Hubs ensure that all recipient schools have a well-ventilated and secure computer lab with appropriate surge protection. The Camara model addresses the dearth of ICT hardware and expertise in sub-Saharan Africa by adding only the inputs that schools cannot bring themselves. The schools themselves must provide and furnish a suitable room, and source a teacher. While many schools do not have electricity, most are willing and able to get it as a prerequisite to receiving Camara computers.
