Malaptop is a charitable organisation in Scotland that collects used and now unwanted laptops and sends them to schools in Malawi. There are students at North Berwick High who are involved in the programme. They will be collecting the laptops from the public, installing a new opeating system and will also be the fundraising for the shipping of the laptops.
Once the laptops are collected the drives are wiped to a Department of Defence level by the Malaptop organisation and then we install Lubuntu a version of Linux’s Ubuntu. The laptops are then shipped to Malawi and hopefully some will end up with our partner school Katunguwiri Community Day Secondary School. Anyone who donates a laptop will be told which school in Malawi their laptop has gone to.
Laptops can be dropped off at North Berwick High School office or if the laptops need collected call Mr Roderick on 01620 894661.
