I know that so many women on PulseWire are looking for ways to get the technology tools they need to stay connected! I did some research looking for organizations that actually have an application process for individuals to apply for donated laptops.

Please note -- I am not affiliated with any of these organizations nor can I claim what kind of rules or fees they might have, I am just hoping that women on Pulsewire can start with some ideas, let the rest of us know what worked for them or what didn't. Here are some links I found:

If anyone successfully receives a donated laptop for your individual or organizational use, please share about it with the community!

Thanks and good luck!

I found the links that you posted useful. You raised an important aspect - access to the Internet by developing countries. I posted an article "ICT and the Information gap" and access to computer is definately one of the major challenges. I have shared with others the links that you have posted.

Well done and keep it up.
