Intersecting passion for technology and love for humanity
Ever wonder what happens to old computer networks when an organization has outgrown its capacity? Billions of dollars in IT equipment gets refreshed in the United States each year, many end up in storage or sold for scrap metal or thrown in landfills, polluting our environment. What if we could repurpose some of these electronics?
Our organization takes donated networking gear that has reached the manufacturer’s "End of Sale" cycle and reuses them in providing pervasive internet technologies to developing countries in the Carribean, Latin America, Asia and Africa.
Example: The discarded equipment from a small organization of 1000 employees or the smallest of schools in a typical American school district could enable a significant number of schools in a small Caribbean country to have access to these technologies with little to no cost.
Though we use brand-new donated equipment where available, the use of used equipment provides a unique opportunity to help reduce e-waste in our environment by using them to bring state-of-the-art technology to those countries that lack the skill necessary to deploy them or simply cannot afford the cost.
With donated technology, our efforts go into redesigning, rebuilding and implementing these precious resources, which offer endless possibilities and opportunities in developing countries.
Our Commitment to Humanity:
1. After designing, building and implementing the network, we create infinite potential for successful future developments in societies to attain educational, economic and life-enhancing benefits.
- Students from different countries can now exchange ideas and experiences.
- Educational processes and resources can be streamlined and normalized between countries.
- Live workshops showcasing the success of volunteer guest speakers here in the US or wherever they may be located are much easier to deliver.
- Life-changing services like Telemedicine will become a possibility.
