Laptop donations

Girls with high potential to code are everywhere. We want to bring our classes and resources to them, wherever and whenever. Help us realize our goal for a portable classroom to expand our reach and empower more young women.

One more laptop means one more learner has an opportunity to succeed. Donate your old laptop to Code4CT and know it will be in good hands, with bright minds.

We are also looking for computer screens to use with Kano computers. Kano is a computer that young people can build and code themselves.  (Screens must be HDMI to be compatible with Kano computers.)

“Eighty20 is proud to be supporting Code4CT’s mission to empower young high school girls with coding, design thinking and problem solving skills – three skills that are highly valued at our company. As an office of around 30 people it was easy to find 12 unused laptops to donate so we would really like to encourage other companies, both big and small to also get involved in Code4CT’s laptop drive.” Andrew Fulton, Director of Eighty20

What happens once the laptops reach Code4CT?

We let our IT partner, Apple Domination work their magic to ensure it’s in perfect working order.

If you’d like to make a cash donation towards insurance and maintenance, this will further the impact of our work.
