Camara Education is embarking on its third, and largest, agreement with the Ethiopian Ministry of Education. Zambia and Kenya are among the other African countries where it has a presence. Camara, an Irish charity, is one such non-governmental organisation whose mission is to transform education using technology to empower disadvantaged students. Camara takes in new and pre-used computers from companies, and refurbishes them for re-use in communities, both in Africa and Ireland. In an €11.5m deal recently signed with the Ethiopian government, Camara committed to bringing 21,000 computers to 840 schools in the country over the next three years. Some 690,000 students should benefit.
