[LISTEN] Teaming up to put old devices to good use
Black Beard Technology is partnering with GirlCode to collect old tech devices to put them to good use and also get girls into coding.
Speaking to Azania Mosaka, Yolandi Strauss from Black Beard Technology says the "Tech Relief" initiative aims to collect and distribute "old" technological devices that are collecting dust in drawers around the world.
She says the devices can be used to meet the burning need for technological learning tools in educational institutions and initiatives, especially in underprivileged areas.
