We were able to partner with Project LEDO to provide computers to BIPOC students at William Walker Title I Elementary School! We delivered 40 devices to families of students in need. So excited to see how many more computers we can get into the hands of BIPOC students through this inspiring partnership!
A statement from Fidel Ferrer, the Founder & Executive Director of Project LEDO:
When I arrived to this country, I obtained my very first computer through a 24h volunteer program at Free Geek. As a volunteer I worked 24 hours of service disassembling computers for recycling. At the end of this program I was awarded a free computer with warranty. This computer gave me the possibility to learn english, apply for jobs, and communicate with my family back home. Coming from a third world country with lack of resources, I never imagined that I would own a computer and have access to technology. Free Geek did that for me! Now I am paying it forward. Today I am proud to announce that my organization Project LEDO and Free Geek are partnering to provide free computers for our #BIPOC students. At our hearts this partnership will provide technology, will enable digital access and education to empower our students to realize their potential in #STEM.
