Irish volunteer group Camara, which refurbishes and donates PCs to underserved regions, has just shipped its 25 000th PC.

Since it was set up in 2005, Camara’s efforts have benefited more than 500 000 students in marginalized communities in Africa.

The charity refurbishes computers that it sources from Irish businesses, Government departments and individuals. It then loads them with educational software and teacher training materials.

Camara Education's CEO John Fitzsimons, said: "We have hit a milestone in Camara's history in exceeding the 25,000 mark for computers distributed. I want to thank all of those that have given technology, time or donations and contributed in reaching this significant achievement."
