Activity description: In 2003, Microsoft launched its regional Microsoft Authorised Refurbishers (MAR) programme across 133 countries Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and the United States. Through the programme, refurbishers are licensed to install Windows 98 Special Edition and Windows 2000 Professional operating systems on refurbished computers supplied to educational establishments, charitable organisations and telecentres. The programme has been created to meet the needs of refurbishers and promote digital inclusion by helping under-served communities realise their potential through access to low cost technology solutions.
