Description

Many refugees and low-income families in Utah are not able to access the vast array of training and other helpful information available through computers such as the internet, that can improve their quality of life. Accessibility to information is often limited because of the cost of computers, lack of computer skills, and the limited number of computers for use in public spaces and other support agencies.

By providing people in need with computers, technical training, and, when possible, temporary employment, we assist families, individuals, and youth in bettering their chances for success.

Importance Importance

In this modern age, everyone should have access to a computer and to the internet, but even in a developed country such as the United States, this is not always the case. By reaching out to low-income families and individuals, it is possible to provide computers and training for those in need and therefore improve their quality of life.

Tech Charities

For the past 7 years, each year we have distributed hundreds of computers to families and students in need. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for those who are vulnerable. We help families and students reach their goals and improve their quality of life by providing computers and training. We also help low-income families build technical skills and confidence by providing computers, resources, technical training, and, when possible, temporary employment. We also assist companies and individuals to effectively recycle old technology and securely erase confidential data. Every computer that is donated goes towards helping someone in need.
