The BC Technology for Learning Society (BC Tech) collects and refurbishes old computers then donates them to organizations in need. Rise Assurance Manager Harry Johal was a BC Tech Director for a year before being elected to this new position. As Treasurer, he will provide governance and oversight from a financial perspective for the charitable organization.
When asked about his new role, Harry had this to say:
Last year, we refurbished and distributed 5,337 computers. Our goal this year is to surpass that number.
BC Tech re-distributes refurbished computers to schools, libraries, low-income families and learning focused non-profits across BC. The work they do keeps computers out of the landfills and provides technology to people in need. Additionally, they also provide job training to young people who are the ones refurbishing the computers. If you want to donate, please visit reusetechbc.ca for more information.
