agara envisions a global community in which every individual is an equal partner in its development. It seeks to invest in relationships within communities and, above all, empower their individuals by coming together to cultivate a sense of growth, self-reliance, collaboration and continuity through supporting and establishing projects across the world.
The PoléPolé campaign is agara’s current project, which has been launched during the first few months of 2016. PoléPolé’s aims to gather numerous projects which are similar in nature but which are intended for different locations. All projects are targeted in providing laptops to schools or rehabilitation centres, or any other similar entity which is already up and running and whose plan is to last for a number of years.
Almost all the laptops for agara’s PoléPolé campaign are donated by individuals and companies. Rather than companies and individuals throwing away their old laptops, agara collects these laptops, repairs and re-use them for the PoléPolé projects. The laptops that we do not manage to repair are dismantled and used as parts to fix other laptops. Till this day, we managed to collect over 60 laptops, of which 40 have been repaired and set up for one of our Projects.
