RAD – Recycle a Device – 2022 at a glance… 

Check out their end of year report here

A message from Bronwyn Scott, Programme Manager:

‘Tēnā koutou katoa,

Ngā mihi nui e te whānau o Recycle A Device! The RAD kaupapa has reached some pretty impressive goals this year. Whether you’ve donated one laptop or several hundred, helped us with community engagement, fundraising, strategy or are thinking about how you’ll get involved in the future; we couldn’t have done it without you and we hope you are as proud as we are with the information shared here.

We are scaling up in 2023! Our goal is to gift 5,000 laptops into the community, which means our operating budget will hit $680k. At this level of growth and impact we will be asking for not just device donations, but also for a contribution to our bottom line, as without cash, we aren’t able to get laptops to those who need them.

At a cost per laptop of $196.90, Recycle A Device is a very cost effective, socially and environmentally friendly way to ensure more young people are able to actively participate in their education, the economy and everyday life. We want you to be part of this growing movement in Aotearoa, and together we will work towards empowering rangatahi to fulfill their potential!

Ngā manaakitanga, Bronwyn Scott, Programme Manager.’

We look forward to seeing all that RAD achieve in 2023 and continuing our support in their awesome mahi working to bridge digital inequity in Aotearoa.
