FAIR Denmark is 10 years old! In those 10 years, we have contributed with nearly 3,000 computers to Malawi, and a lot of people have been involved in doing so!

malawi ewaste

Sub-Saharan countries, for instance Rwanda or in Kenya, have responsible e-waste recycling. This is both evidence that it can work, and an indirect call: It is time to have such capacity in Malawi!
