Chromebooks for Afghan refugee families

Do you have any old, unused, personal laptops that you no longer use?

Older laptops can be converted into Chromebooks and the aim of this project is to provide as many converted Chromebooks as possible to Afghan refugee families living in the local area.

Please ensure that your device is definitely unwanted and has been wiped of any personal information before donating.

Please bring your donations to the Student Union reception – opening times: 9-5pm Monday to Thursday (4.30pm on Friday).

Please remember to:

  • include your name and contact email address with your donation.
  • include the changer.
  • ask your family, friends and neighbours if they have any devices to donate

Please note that we are only able to accept older laptops 5 years plus and not iPads or tablet devices. These MUST be PERSONAL devices and NOT university owned.

All donated devices will be inspected and wiped clean of all data before being converted to a Chromebooks by the team of WV Technology Volunteers. Once converted the Chromebooks will then be distributed to Afghan refugee families living in the local area.
