ICT charity and Computing partner Computer Aid International is looking for corporate sponsorship to roll its ZubaBox out to 10 disaster areas and remote communities.
The ZubaBox concept was created in 2010 and rolled out to Macha in Zambia in April of last year.
The box is constructed using old shipping containers and fitted with thin client computers that run on solar power.
The box rapidly deploys low power computing solutions to areas with no access to electricity or ICT.
By sponsoring one ZubaBox companies can benefit a developing community by providing the ICT required to support business, education and healthcare or disaster relief work.
Sponsoring a fully fitted ZubaBox will cost a company £22,000. Benefits to sponsors include an enhanced CSR profile and an opportunity to gain exposure and publicity in emerging markets (the company logo will appear on the ZubaBox container).
Interested companies can either donate used computer equipment or sponsor a ZubaBox.
