Donate your used Laptop, iPhone or Tablet to a blind student! in India

Vision-Aid, in partnership with Samarthanam USA is excited to offer a Laptop/iPhone donation program starting at this year’s annual event on July 18th and beyond. Please bring an old or used (but working) PC or Mac laptop or a working tablet/iPhone to the Vision Aid event and let a visually impaired student at The Samarthanam School for the Blind or at a Vision-Aid Center, benefit from your device. The blind can use computers to access programs and information just like anyone else. They just use special Text-to-speech software. You can also see a demo of such a “talking laptop” for yourself! Please just make sure that the laptop or tablet/iPhone IS IN WORKING CONDITION and NO MORE THAN FIVE YEARS OLD, and includes a working battery/power charging cord. Samarthanam’s IT staff will clean the hard drive and install new OS and special ‘talking’ software and make sure it gets into the hands of a visually impaired student in India. Samarthanman USA will also issue a tax deductible receipt for this donation. We are also looking for volunteers who can help to transport such laptops or devices to Bangalore, India on their next trip, and would gladly welcome any volunteer who can help in this regard. Such Donations may be made after the event also. For more information please send email to info@visionaid.org or call (781) 333 5252 and we will coordinate the donation.
