WHO WE ARE
“Climbing the right tree” is a Netherlands-based NGO with the mission to create career opportunities for young people in Africa using information technology. We do this in the following ways:
We usually work in collaboration with Maxim Nyansa IT Solutions Foundation in Accra, Ghana, an NGO under Ghanaian law with the same vision. Our logo reflects a young African climbing up his career ladder in ICT. Our full policy document and 2019 budget can be downloaded here(PDF) . The annual financial report of Maxim Nyansa over 2016 can be downloaded here(PDF) , for 2017 it can be downloaded here(PDF) and for 2018 it can be downloaded here(PDF).
We highly appreciate your donation. In 2019 and 2020 we would like to ship a total of 3000 computers to West-Africa, and we want to sponsor various school projects and IT training programs. You can also participate by adopting a school or fund the scholarship of one or our IT trainees. Contact us for more information at
We are very grateful that our work is being sponsored by multiple major donors, schools and businesses who provide us with finances, free hardware, educational materials or trainers.
We are a foundation that is completely carried by volunteers. You are most welcome to join one of our volunteer teams in the Netherlands:
HARDWARE FOR SCHOOLS
We regularly send a container with second hand hardware to West-Africa. We are in particular looking for:
Desktops (windows 7) and laptops in a good shape
In 2019 we have shipped a 40 feet container in May and a 20 feet container in August. We are preparing to ship the next in November. Our logistics team in the Netherlands will remove all data before your donated computers leave the country and will provide you with a GDPR-proof statement for each item. Hardware engineers employed by our partner organization in Accra further refurbish all hardware at our local warehouse and prepare them for a second life in a public school. In 2018 7 new IT labs were established. In 2019 we are planning for 25 new IT labs.
