Trade in for good with iSchoolAfrica and Jacaranda FM.




Technology and education go hand in hand. It is so important for our younger generation to be fully versed with technology thus helping secure and create future jobs.

There are so many wonderful apps and tools available on iPad to empower children as well as allowing new skills sets to be learned, such as coding!


Unfortunately, not all schools are fortunate enough to have such technology. The iSchoolAfrica Education Trust wants to change this. 


In partnership with Jacaranda FM they created the trade in for good programme. 

This programme creates the opportunity for you to donate your previously loved iPad. Your donated iPad will be given to a school which will be the start of the schools very own iPad Lab. 


The first lab donated by Jacaranda FM listeners was handed over to a school in Danville, Pretoria West. iStore partnered with Jacaranda FM to sponsor the full requirements for a mobile lab and 6 months of iSchoolAfrica teacher training. This will help teachers get accustomed to the technology and empower them to implemented in their classrooms. 


A few things to remember before you donate your previously loved iPad: 


  • Ensure you are logged out of your iTunes and iCloud account as well as having these accounts and Find my iPad deactivated. 
  • iPads need to be in working condition with no damage to the screen or any liquid damage. 
  • If possible iPads should be donated with the charger and cable. 
  • All email accounts should be deleted from the iPad.


You can drop off your previously loved iPad at Jacaranda FM’s studio in Midrand.


Get your company involved: 


It’s not just individuals that can donate - companies can get involved too! 

Companies can either donate a previously loved iPads or they can sponsor one school’s activation for R150 000. The donation will include a 6 months training programme at the school, monitoring and evaluation of products as well as the additional equipment that the school will need in order to effectively introduce the technology into the classroom.
