Get Involved

The Teacher in a Box project is reliant on the support of Rotary Clubs, Not-for-Profits, individuals, and businesses. We invite you to help us Empower People and Change Lives through education. Please see the options below for how YOU can make a positive difference in the world.

We Need You !

Recycle Your IT Equipment with us

The Teacher in a Box team turns donated computers into TIB servers for use in libraries and schools all around the world. Laptops released in 2010 or later are generally suitable for this purpose.

We take data security very seriously. As part of our service we use the highly recognised WipeDrive to securely erase the data on all donated computers and generate certified Erasure Reports.

Whether you are an individual, business or organisation please consider donating your used IT equipment to us. By recycling your computers with us you can rest assured that it will find a good home.

IT Managers – We are happy to discuss any special requirements that you may have to meet the standards set by NIST 800-88 REV 1 and can offer several ways for you to receive your Erasure reports in bulk to make the management easier for you.
