Becky Morrison found a way to empower people in the developing world by founding Globetops to gather used laptops for those who need them. Becky explains her motivation for founding Globetops, “For years we have been presented images of people in the developing world who are poor and suffering. But there is another demographic that we don’t see - those who are passionate and powerful! People who may lack resources, but who have big visions for their lives and who are doing great work in their communities.” “If we can get ourselves out of the way, anything is possible,” she adds. “There is already enough stuff in the world. The problem is that it’s not in the right places. Everyone is talking about recycling nowadays, but I’m more interested in redistribution,” she concludes.
