IT equipment for your digital inclusion project

The City of Brussels donates discarded and refurbished IT equipment to non-profit organisations that want to close the digital divide.

The City of Brussels is not only fighting the digital divide, but also wants a longer lifespan for its equipment. In this context, and in collaboration with its external IT partner External site i-CITY, the City donates obsolete IT equipment (without installed software and within the limits of available stock): desktops, laptops, screens, keyboards, mice,...

Fighting the digital divide

This refurbished equipment is distributed to associations developing ICT projects for vulnerable groups in the City of Brussels through a number of non-profit organisations with which the City cooperates. For example:

  • facilitating access to ICT in places away from Public Computer Rooms and other structures that make ICT available to the public
  • training the public in the use of ICT (basic, specific and/or advanced training) through courses and/or workshops
  • creating a mobile public digital space
  • lending out ICT equipment
  • ...

Besides schools, the City has already been able to help numerous organisations and projects by distributing 1,164 desktops and 475 screens in 2022.
