Join the Computer Weekly Blog Awards Charity Challenge

This year Computer Weekly have added a special category to the Blog Awards in order to help raise funds for a fantastic cause, through donations to a special charity project.

The charity is Computer Aid International and the project we would like you to support is Computers for Schools Kenya.

It costs just £50 to get a refurbished PC onto a Kenyan school desk. There is a chronic shortage of PCs in the Kenyan school system and many Kenyan children complete school never having a seen a PC. Without simple IT literacy these children will be denied basic life chances such as equal access to employment opportunities.

All we are asking you to do is to make a donation by clicking on the  Just Giving page, and state it was GirlyGeekdom that encouraged you to donate.

Visit the Just Giving page for all the details and to Donate Now.
