FAIR provides ICT equipment for education in Malawi: We receive equipment from Danish companies and organizations. We safely wipe their data and ensure that the equipment has the quality to be transferred for a new year-long life at Malawian secondary schools. In this way, a single computer or laptop can reach hundreds of youths that would likely otherwise lack access to information technology in their education.

The equipment …

We have an honorable non-human veteran in FAIR's Copenhagen workshop: It’s a laptop that has been around our workshop for as long as the workshop has existed (10 years). It proves a point about longevity of hardware being put to good use. Because it was manufactured to high standards and because we kept up with its maintenance, this Dell Latitude D505, marketed in 2004, is still operational after being refurbished …

denmark gdpr privacy English Danish

(Scroll down for English)

I FAIR går vi op i at sikre privatliv og anden følsom data. En af hovedaktiviteterne i vores organisation er at overskrive data og dermed sikre, at de ikke falder i de forkerte hænder.

Derfor synes vi også, at GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) er et tiltag i den rigtige retning. Og som en organisation, der i forvejen behandler persondata, kan vi genkende mange af udfordringerne, …
