Project Summary / Description:
In 2014, founder Raj Ramdass was invited to assist students in a high crime area in Trinidad with at risk youth. An intervention, using secondary school students as mentors, led to the formation of the RSC Tech Clubs seeking to recycle used computers to support these activities. A national call to collect used computers demonstrated that many people were not aware of the dangers to the environment of indiscriminate dumping of eWaste. Partnerships then allowed the Clubs to become a conduit for capacity building, information sharing and support on this and other related issues like carbon emission.

Impact on Underrepresented Groups:
RSC‚ core concept of effecting change uses technology to build capacity in youth and offers a support system across social, economic and digital divides. Our recognition for work in low socio economic ‚ hot spot areas are a testimony of engaging with economic issues in these areas. Partnering to support a regional Girls Hackathon in gender Based Violence and Climate change in 2018 and 2019 led to capacity building in over 2000 teenage girls in the region. In January 2020 RSC partnered with an outsourcing company in New Jersey USA to set up office in Trinidad with the intention of providing outsourcing opportunities for trained students.
