Your old Laptop can be
A child's future

New laptops are bought to replace old, slow laptops in Singapore every day.

Recycling by donating your old, unused laptop to RE-PC gives it a second life benefitting deserving youth.

How donating your old laptop will make a difference

Empower the children of 105,000 families in Singapore with household incomes below $1,500.

Your old, slow laptop, gathering dust at home, simply becomes more outdated over time, eventually contributing to e-waste. 

 

By taking advantage of a RE-PC Singapore donation event, your laptop can be made useful again and create educational opportunities for a less fortunate child.

 

How it works

 

Our mechanism has been designed ground up to be low-cost, efficient and effective. And we target recipients who will benefit the most.

 

1. Old, slow laptops are donated to RE-PC.

 

Our Donation Opportunity Events are located in easy to access locations, several times a year.

 

2. The old laptops you donate are wiped, so your personal data and information will never be seen by anyone else. Ever.

 

3. The old laptops are reformatted with the Ubuntu/ Lubuntu operating systems.

 

These OS's are specially designed to make old hardware usable again.

 

These OS provide access to an entire ecosystem of free software, online productivity apps and educational content.

 

4. The refurbished laptops are now good to go to homes with deserving children.

Why donate to the RE-PC program?

You become part of a movement providing equal opportunity for disadvantaged youth

GIVING EQUAL OPPORTUNITY TO THE LESS FORTUNATE

Empower the youth of 105,000 households in Singapore that earn less than SGD1,500 per month

 

PROVIDING ACCESS TO ONLINE EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL

Not having access to computing at home robs the child of independant learning opportunities outside the classroom.

 

ALLOWING FAMILIARITY WITH A NEW DIGITAL WORLD

Children adapt with incredible speed, if given the room to expand their perspective.
RE-PC allows them to explore a new digital world with the same freedom as their peers and access a variety of career paths.

 

REDUCING E-WASTE, EXTENDING USELFUL LIFESPANS

A new paradigm of sustainable consumerism is upon us.
The RE-PC movement lets you extend the lifespan of your electronics and reduce impact on the environment, allowing anyone to be a part of the "responsible upgrading" movement.
