Need: Re.: We request help for shipping donated computers to our NGOs/CBOs working at grassroot levels in rural areas of India
GBS as a NGO has been working for various rural development programs with focus on women's empowerment, prevention of HIV/AIDS and protection and improvement of environment etc. for past 24 years.
We have formed a Network of NGOs engaged in the field of HIV/AIDS and violence against women in 14 states of India wherein 210 NGO/CBOs have joined so far as members.
We provided 171 personnel of these NGOs associated with our network with IT training with support from UNAIDS, but most of them don't have computers.
It would be great if these NGO personnel got IT training could be provided with PCs. It would not only enhance the capacity of NGOs/CBOs working at grassroot level, but excelerate the work of prevention of HIV/AIDS and violence against women they are involved in committedly.
We had contacted a donor in UK who agreed to donate us 171 PCs, but required us to pay the shipping charges worth GBP 8,254.
May I, therefore, request you kindly to suggest us some possible donors/supporters in this regard?
Here are some ways you can help:
• If the full amount for shipping all 171 computers of $8,254 is too much Help shipping a few s would make a big difference and per computer would cost: (insert cost for shipping one here)
• Also, perhaps you have a computer or laptop you can donate, or know someone who does? Also a financial donation could help us purchase computers locally.
• Maybe you know a shipping company that could donate the shipping, or an NGO that could help transport the computers.
Looking forward to your support soon,
