In the last 10 years, I’ve probably had at least 3 different computers/ laptops. To be completely honest, I’m not entirely sure what I did with them after I purchased and started using my new one. They’re most likely sitting in my parent’s basement, along with clothes I haven’t worn in decades, and pictures I drew as a child.
Labdoo brings excess and underused laptops to children in the developing world through its grassroots, decentralized, social networking tools, with the goal of building laboratories for ‘edoocation’ one at a time.
Does this sound like an interesting idea? There are many ways to participate including:
- Dootrip: Labdoo assigns laptops that can be transported by volunteers who announce their travel schedules for delivery in a sustainable and green way to those in need.
- Labdoo Labs: Bring your programming skills and ideas and help the Labdoo team develop backend engines required for the social network to manage laptops worldwide.
- Dooplet: Contribute to the dooplet project, Labdoo’s software-based desktop app that’s aimed at diagnosing and determining when one of the deployed laptops needs fixing or recycling by a labdoo network volunteer.
Currently, 500 laptops have been tagged for this project by its owners in 37 countries around the world. Once the laptops are no longer of use to its original owner, they are brought either by the owner or through a Dootrip to one of 13 Donation Hubs, where they are refurbished, reformatted, and prepared to be delivered to one of 22 beneficiary projects.
What are you waiting for? Be part of Labdoo and join the social network that brings a laptop to a child!
Thank you Labdoo for making our world wonderful.
