obtaining a laptop computer fro Enon Alex - the Local Represenatative

Status: Just started
Step: 
6

As the Local Representative for Adyaka it is essentail that Alex can communicate easily with neighbours , potential funding agencies , nabuur, myself as faciltator , colleagues within Uganda etc . At the present he has no laptop so he is dependent on access to an internet cafe in a local town which is not easy , is at some distance, is expensive and is unreliable .

What is needed is to try and find a laptop for him either
from a donor agency in the International community or
from within a source in Uganda .

What I want to ask is if any neighbour would be prepared to help Alex with this task either by directly approaching an approprite organisation or by researching real possibilities for this to be actioned. If you can help please contact Alex directly - I know he will be only too pleased.

Hi Richard and Alex

I see from the newsletter that you are putting in an application to TWAM. I think they supply computers too so it may be worth including this on the application and see what they say.

Came across this
InterConnection Uganda
http://interconnection-uganda.com/default.aspx
who import and refurbish computers in Uganda. It appears that they then sell these rather than giving them away. May be worth checking it out to see whether this would be cheaper than shipping. Don't know if they supply laptops as the site does not give much info.

Contact details from http://interconnection-uganda.com/contactus.aspx

Alex - as they are in Uganda, you would be the best person to contact them.

Depending on costs, this could be an option for several Ugandan villages who are looking for computers.

There is also a big list of potential donors in Kabondo's Resources section (you have to scroll down a bit) http://www.nabuur.com/modules/newbb/projectresources.php?villageid=338 although I suspect that you will have to pay for shipping even if they will give you the computer.
