A free home computer for every student in need
The “OtthON” project aims to provide cost-free use of a home computer for all elementary and high school students. These computers will be distributed directly to the schools, who will make them available to their students for the duration of their studies at home.
Who we are:
We are a team of enthusiastic civilians from relevant fields with extensive experience. We work together with United Way Hungary to find a solution to the present situation caused by COVID-19 pandemic.
The problem we want to solve:
Educational institutions had to close their doors due to the present threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing the students to keep up with their studies remotely from home. This has created a new challenge to every family: working parents and school children need to coordinate their daytime computer use, however this is often not possible. In most cases, they do not have enough computers or even proper internet connection to
work and study at home.
We want to donate suitable – used but refurbished – desktop configurations for home learning and a stable internet connection with adequate bandwidth for learning to schools and other educational institutions that can lend these tools to their students free-of-charge for the duration of their studies at home.
The professional partner of the foundation, in the framework of a non-profit cooperation, will put together refurbished computer configurations from the received financial and / or material donations. With these professionally refurbished computers we can provide a modern infrastructure for a student from as little as HUF 33,000 already. With this he or she can participate in online education on a daily basis.
Who we support
For all compulsory students who are unable to attend full-time online education due to financial or infrastructural constraints.
How we use your donation
All incoming donations and sponsorship money goes to United Way Hungary, which is one of the oldest non-profit organisations in the country. Based on their survey with nearly a thousand educational institutions in March 2020, they have an accurate picture of what what and how many computers would be needed in each schools. The donated funds will reach the each institutions quickly and efficiently, who will make them available to families free of charge for the duration of the present situation.
How do the computers get to the families?
Why don’t families get the computers directly?
Why not new computers?
Used, refurbished computers have several advantages over new devices:
In what order do we allocate the computers?
Based on the assessment of requirements by our partner foundation, we aim to satisfy all the needs as soon as possible and we will provide continuous information about these deliveries.
What is the commissioning process? How can children use the computer?
What happens when education in schools starts again?
