EmpowHERto in Toronto Receives Free Computer and Projector

With the help of ERA’s scholarship applicant Jathavi Shanmuganantham, we donated a desktop computer and a projector to EmpowHERto to help staff work remotely.

ERA likes to get the community involved in many ways throughout the year. Our scholarship competition gives students the opportunity to gain experience and build their resumes by hosting an e-waste collection event. The grand prize winner receives $10,000!

EmpowHERto works with girls and young women to provide them with the tools they need to succeed and influence positive systemic change. We’re launching programs in the areas of leadership, health and wellness, civic engagement, financial literacy, and STEAM for high school girls and young adults to build their confidence and enhance their leadership skills in all facets of life.

They provide young women with the resources to be self-reliant in their own powers rather than those of others by shifting the narrative and exposing them to female role models and encouraging them to be their best selves. Their goal is to work with our young ladies to build self-esteem and awareness of their strengths by showing girls and womxn that what they have inside makes them beautiful, special, and unique.

The ERA (Electronic Recycling Association), is focused on reducing unnecessary waste and/or environmental impact through effective management of retiring electronic and IT equipment.  As a non-profit organization with deep community roots, it is our “reuse” focus and donation activities that set us apart from others in this sector. We are an ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 Certified Company that offers pickup services, comprehensive data security measures, and subsequent reporting.

The ERA believes that “reuse” where ever possible is the most ecological approach to this growing stream, and an excellent way to compel real community goodwill at the same time. The Electronic Recycling Association has a clear mission of reducing electronic waste through computer recycling, laptop recycling, and computer donation services.
