Gone Too Soon

We are saddened to announce the death of Timothy Anderson, WCE’s Founder and President, July 12th, 2022.

Who We Are

Since 2000, WCE has helped youth in 54 developing countries to gain digital literacy in 3,703 classrooms.

What We Do

By providing computers with educational content and training, WCE empowers schools to maximize technology use as they face the challenges of distance learning.

Get Involved

Volunteer, give equipment, or donate money to help WCE reduce the digital divide in developing countries.

Hear from our community.

WCE is a global movement to make the world a better place.

Our work turns trash into treasure and gives them to people in need. It always makes me feel that I am a part of something greater than myself.

The computers and materials received from WCE add value and enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning. Also, the Inspire Girls project is more stimulating and engaging because youth are able to acquire more 21st century skills than in a classroom environment.

WCE is uniquely positioned to address the chronic problem of a lack of working computers and technical understanding to maintain them in schools for children who need them most to learn.

Modern education is impossible without digital devices. Hence we need to make technology easily accessible.

Students in Primary and Secondary Schools fear pursuing careers in technology due to the lack of nearby and affordable computer centers.
