Who we are

Chance for Africa – CHANCE (SCIO) is a Scottish charity (No. SC044936), located in Edinburgh, that is staffed and run by volunteers. We collect, wipe, repair, then send refurbished computers, together with classroom furniture’s, books and other educational materials, to needy schools and NGOs in Ghana.

We aim to use technology to improve education in Africa and alleviate poverty.

You can help us to make a difference to the lives of African children living in poverty now. Donate, take part in an event, fundraise for us or sponsor a child. It could be the most powerful thing you do today.
