More technology=better education, writes Tony Roberts, head of NGO Computer Aid International in the FT today.

99 percent of children in developing countries "leave school without having seen or touched a computer," he claims. But Computer Aid International has the answer...

"There are a number of steps companies could take to help bridge this digital divide, for example professionally refurbishing Pentium personal computers for re-use through organisations such as Computer Aid International. Instead, nearly 2m PCs are dumped in landfill sites every year, and with them the opportunity to promote education in developing countries is buried."
