I started the #laptops4Developers campaign in Nigeria, it's a Non-profit mission to support 20 upcoming developers into programming; people who already have an interest in programming but are unable to follow up due to bad or no laptop, no mentor or other support. This program is aimed at supporting them through the course of 3months, they'll be paired with a mentor of their in their field.
Name cannot be blank@hacksultanI want to publicly fund raise 1m to support 10 upcoming developers to get a good laptop + free course.
1. We will be giving out the laptops not the money. Buying in bulk
2. All core i5 and hopefull 128gb SSD or 500gb HDD
You want one? Indicate and tag potential sponsor.12:08 PM - 20 Mar 2019
N.B: The 1m written here is 1 million in Nigerian currency, that's less than $3000
Here is also the link to my main Dev article that talks more about this campaign.
The support from developers in the US has been really encouraging, but as it is, I'm currently running all these alone and in need of major foreign support to assist. We have been able to raise about 1750 pounds in a month on our Gofundme and we need more support on this.
The campaign is going forward on twitter with the hashtag #Laptops4Developers, with over 2million impressions since we've started.
We've gotten support from a lot of developers and a lot has volunteered to join the mentor's list.

I'll be answering all questions here also..
