Whether laptops, eBook readers or tablet PCs - if your private devices are no longer in use and are still in good condition*, they can be donated to the association. (*Please note minimum requirements) This organisation distributes them worldwide so that children and young people at home and abroad have access to IT, education, language courses and participation in the digital society. This not only does good, but also avoids electronic waste.

„In Germany, too, there is a great need for IT to enable digital participation, be it for needy families, immigrant schoolchildren from Ukraine or other countries. Labdoo has already arranged over 40,000 IT donations at home and abroad.”
