Anyone willing to giveaway old Pi

Thu Nov 15, 2018 9:16 am

Hello world I'm from Zimbabwe and have long since been looking at affordable computing solutions at school level and i think Pi is the best way forward for us. I'm kindly requesting if there are good people out there who would be willing to part with their old pi so that we have at least somewhere to start as i cannot get them anywhere here. Thank you

I have nothing that I am willing to give away since I don't have much money to spare, however, I did some research and found a few places which were recommended by the community.

* https://www.pifactory.co.za/
* https://za.rs-online.com/web/
* https://www.pishop.co.za/store/ (It appears that there have been some complaints, check this out)

I found these on a few sites, however, this is the major one.

I hope I helped,
Have a great day!

There must be a fair few people who have older Pi computers which they would be willing to donate to good causes and plenty of good causes which could make good use of them.

What I think is needed is someone who could coordinate and administer the collection of Pi's being given away, testing and distribution of those they receive.

Maybe some charity could step forward and provide that service ? Perhaps even providing a FreePost mail service to encourage people to participate.

Maybe someone could think of a charity which is very familiar with the Raspberry Pi and would be well placed to do such a thing :?:
