Computer Refurbishing, sales and Donation

One of the main activities of Info Timor is the remanufacturing of high-end computers. This work is carried out in the Info Timor workshops in Dili, Baucau, Suai, and Liquica.

Info Timor workshops are staffed by certified computer technicians who have undertaken the Cisco IT Essentials training program.

The computer refurbishment process ensures every computer is thoroughly checked and installed with quality operating software and applications.

The computers are sourced from Australian businesses that are upgrading their technology and shipped to Timor Leste coordinated by Info Timor’s Australian partner xpand Foundation.

The computers are sold on a cost recovery basis to organisations, schools, community groups and NGO’s. Income generated is used to pay wages of the Info Timor Technicians and cover operational overheads.

This has allowed communities and individuals to access quality affordable computers where they otherwise would not be able too. All of the Info Timor computers are supplied with a warranty.

People who purchase a computer can participate in the Info Timor computer basics training program to gain the skills required to become proficient in using a computer.

Info Timor currently employs eight technicians in its four workshop in Dili, Baucau, Suai and Liquica.
