This project will allow partner insititutes and different business units to collaborate and work on the feasibility of recycling pcs as a sustainable business model to help alleviate the poverty trap in Tanzania. Students from Arusha, CU Business school and CU Computing will collaborate.
The project has loose boundaries and requires the use of self initiative of Master level students from Business and computing schools to utilise global online tools of their choice and self manage themselves. The exercise will require the students to capture their experience and this will lend weight to future projects of similar scope.
