GreenPC

Saturday 31 May 2008

GreenPCGreenPC is a great initiative from Infoxchange Australia in which people on low incomes and with a Health Care Card can purchase low-cost computer equipment.

This is what Infoxchange Australia has to say about GreenPC:

Infoxchange Australia has developed a Digital Divide Strategy aimed at addressing the growing inequality of access to the new information technologies among low-income and disadvantaged groups. Consistent with this we were successful in obtaining short-term funding from the Victorian Governments Community Jobs Program to establish a social enterprise called the GreenPC.

Green Peripherals and Components, otherwise known as GreenPC, has now developed as a successful social enterprise initiative of Infoxchange Australia that operates to service low income people on a national basis. GreenPC now operates out of two centres located in Melbourne and Brisbane.

Green PC's are recycled personal computers that are refurbished and repackaged into usable Internet ready computers and then made available to low-income communities, individuals and community organisations. The only qualification for an individual or family to have access to a Green PC computer is that they be holders of current Health Care Cards or are able to verify their low income status in some other way.

The objectives of GreenPC are to upgrade and Internet-enable outdated computers. A large number of computers have already been donated to the Infoxchange Australia for this purpose. Once they have been refurbished these computers are made available for distribution.

If you have computers available that you would like to donate to this initiative and help reduce technology waste and give an opportunity to someone on a low income please email us and leave your name and phone number, and one of our service staff will contact you.
