World Computer ExchangeÂ is a nonprofit education organizationÂ helping youth in developing countries to access new skills, understanding and opportunities through the internet. We work through a network of 915 formal partner organizations in 77 developing countries.Â Our 800 volunteers in collaboration with 25 global education strategic allies provide our partners with six services: online capacity building, low-cost refurbished computers, preloaded educational content, onsite tech training, computers for girls tools, and hardware repair and leadership skills for youth. Since 2000, we have connected 3,310 schools, universities, youth centers and libraries serving 4.67 million youth. Â Our refurbishing and content loading takes place in 10 Chapters in Australia, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the USA.Â Our 10 Field Associates are also growing Chapters in Haiti and 9 African countries. Â We are piloting a more in-depth program with schools in Puerto Rico and developing tools for teachers in Africa and Latin America who are interested in inspiring girls to pursue careers in technology. Â We operate as a volunteer and virtual organization to keep our costs low and annual fund raising expenses below 4%.
