BigBridge is a hardware donation program that provides NGOs access to refurbished computers with licensed software, donated by IT companies helping them responsibly manage their e-waste.
The BigBridge program was launched in April 2009 as a win-win for both companies and NGOs. It is an offering to companies to ensure responsible e-waste reuse and disposal while cash-strapped NGOs receive computer donations. A lot of companies have bonded machines which are considerably difficult to remove from special economic zones. BigBridge guides companies through the process and ensures a seamless transfer. The program provides a complete IT disposal facility to companies, giving new purpose to redundant computers and peripherals. This in turn helps NGOs get access to technology and scale up their operations in areas of education, employability, health and entrepreneurship.
