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.


Alice Yu

Volunteer, MA

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


Mulugeta Assefa

Field Associate, Ethiopia

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.


Misheck Mutuzana

Field Associate, Zambia

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


Beatrice Nyinawingeli

Inspire Girls Teacher, Rwanda

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.


Robb Rill

I love working with and learning from our partner organizations and volunteers. Together we are going to find a path to surviving this pandemic.
