About Camara Education
Camara Education operates as a social enterprise and operates in two distinct business lines: ‘Education Delivery’ and ‘Computer Reuse’. The connection between these two, seemingly disparate activities is TECHNOLOGY.
We take in used computers from Irish companies and individuals, wipe their hard drives of data (in line with US Department of Defense standards), refurbish and load them with educational software before setting them up as Learning Centres in schools in Africa and Ireland.
We train teachers to use these computers as tools to improve the delivery of education to their students.
We produce computer training and educational multimedia materials for use by teachers and children.
Camara Education is an international educational organisation dedicated to delivering real impact through technology by inspiring and empowering a young generation to improve their own life opportunities. This role is to support Camara in processing the computers in the Dublin workshop so that they are ready for shipment to Africa.
