ALFAZ’S Education departments and parents’ associations at the town’s five state schools are launching an IT equipment bank.
This will provide a supply of the appliances that have become vital for children’s schoolwork since schools closed during the State of Alarm.
“Very often equipment that we no longer use ends up in the rubbish when it could be given a second chance,” said Alfaz’s Education councillor Dolores Albero.
The project has three fundamental social, environmental and economic aspects, Albero said.
Socially it unites donors and pupils, environmentally the scheme promotes recycling and it helps economically because all the donated mobile phones, tablets, laptops and computers will be reconditioned or repaired locally.
