Habitat and Redemtech partnership provides computers to partner families

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Habitat for Humanity of Martin County recently received 20 computers from Redemtech to distribute to its partner families.

Habitat for Humanity International has partnered with Redemtech, a company that refurbishes large volumes of PC’s from businesses around the world. They have committed to providing refurbished computers for 10,000 Habitat for Humanity partner families. Every computer undergoes a rigorous reconditioning process within their facilities, including complete data-wiping, OEM-level testing, and all the various repairs and upgrades necessary. The computers are then professionally packaged and come standard with genuine software pre-installed and a 90-day limited exchange warranty.

Habitat affiliates are responsible for providing basic computer training and Internet safety to ensure computers are delivered to families who demonstrate a need for a home computer. The families that received these computers were thrilled. Many have children who use them for their schoolwork and were unable to afford a computer. This has alleviated stress of tight schedules and gas mileage for frequent trips to the local library to do projects requiring a computer.

To ensure proper disposal when the computer reaches the end of its life, each recipient family will receive free asset recovery and recycling services from Redemtech. The free service provides assurance to Redemtech’s clients donating computers that the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility will be maintained when the computers are retired.
