No, the transport of your goods for donation is entirely free of charge. To be able to continue to offer this service free of charge a good relation between the distance and the revenue is necessary. In other words: we are willing to drive further for valuable lots.
In exceptional cases, it is possible to have the data removed within the walls of your company. Because additional costs are connected with this, this can only be done free of charge for large amounts of computers or if we can charge you the additional costs.
In any successful sustainable ICT project other costs exist besides the purchase of hardware. Think of costs for logistics, training of users, guidance of the schools during their preparation, the installation, the development of an appropriate software package and the gathering of relevant e-learning content. The operational execution of the projects is done by our local Viafrica branches in Kenya and Tanzania. To create leverage and local support the schools actively contribute to the projects by delivering the basics. Think of a suitable room, furniture, electricity and teachers.
The needed start investment for a computer laboratory lies beyond the financial reach of most schools in Africa. Viafrica enables this investment, in partnership with you, for them. Viafrica has the condition that each school in Africa willing to participate does an investment in the form of a room, proper electricity, furniture and available ICT teachers. Besides, each school contributes an amount per computer for maintenance, support, having up-to-date software and e-learning materials and follow-up training for the teachers.
No, all your hardware will be sold in The Netherlands. Of which you receive a report. The revenues are used for the financing of Viafrica projects. This means, among others, the purchasing of the needed hardware for the projects, transport, training, installation and lesson materials. Maintenance and operational costs are met by the project schools.
Schools and other project partners can hand in their not-functioning hardware (e-waste) at the nearest Viafrica office. Our offices store that hardware. The hardware will subsequently be stripped and offered to am e-waste recycler in Kenya. The easy to process parts (iron, plastic) will be recycled locally, the more difficult parts (PCBs, CRT monitors) will be shipped to Europe and processed there. We work in close cooperation with WorldLoop.
