Palo Alto University March 2014 Technology Drive Helps About 800 Students

Palo Alto University's community donated nearly 40 computers to Camara, one of the world’s leading education-based charities. Computers were donated by the University itself and by staff and students. 

These computers, once refurbished in Camara's workshop in San Jose will end up in a school, either in Africa (where Camara operates in 8 countries) or the Caribbean.  Each computer will be utilized by over 20 children and teachers in becoming digitally literate and to improve the quality of their education. 

Blake Burke, CEO of Camara USA:

“We were delighted to work with Palo Alto University in this initiative. Having such a well-respected educational institution share its resources with schools and colleges in very impoverished countries says a lot about the ethos of the college. March 2014 Technology Drive with PAU will provide computer resources for about 800 Africa students. These resources will help many people break the cycle of poverty they have faced throughout their lives.”

According to Helena Ting, Vice President Community Development, the organizer for PAU:

“I see a lot of synergies between our Global Program on improving lives and Camara's mission to use technology to improve education around the world.  We expect that this will be an annual event for our University in helping many more needed communities benefit from our resources.”
