The current challenges in the field of ICT are so big that organisations cannot tackle them alone any longer. It is in this context that WorldPC has been launched. WorldPC is both a network representing various ICT4Development member organisations operating within industrialized and developing countries and an organisation itself.
The ultimate goal of WorldPC’s members is to reduce the digital divide and thereby to contribute to the creation of an all-inclusive society with equal opportunities for all people to have access to information to improve their lives.
WorldPC’s mission is to become a standard of excellence for an evolving network of non-profit, civil society, public and commercial organisations, who share common objectives in realising the transformative potential of knowledge, communication and information technologies to improve lives, reduce poverty and empower people throughout the world.
WorldPC’s main objectives are:
- E-waste solutions – Sustainable collection, dismantling and recycling of end-of-use ICT hardware in the African continent, and specifically at present in the East African Community (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi)
- Sharing, Learning and Connecting between all ICT4DEV actors
- Act as a quality label in production/refurbishment, recycling, data wiping etc.
In the context of the significant growth of the organisation a vacancy for a full-time PR, Communication and Office Manager has become available.
