Possible PC, an affiliate with Electronics Waste Management LLC, a recycling company based in Atlanta, GA, wants to advance e-learning by partnering with Organizations to provide computers and laptops for children and low-income earners who lack these basic gadgets at home.
This is the year 2021, and the digital divide is still a problem in America. Far too many Americans still don’t have access in their homes to the technology and affordable high-speed broadband they need to succeed in today’s economy. There’s a shortage of computers in many homes. Lending credence to this, USAFACTS, in its April 2020 report, postulated that more than 9 million children in the US lack access to a computer or internet.
Nelson Mandela once quipped that “History will judge us by the difference we make in the everyday lives of children”. Possible PC have made it their mission to make a difference in less-privileged children’s lives, bridging the digital gap by providing free and affordable computers.
The company, in collaboration with other organizations, is primed to provide 500,000 systems in homes, with the noble gesture of donating 75% of the computers for free while 25% will be sold online through the website for administration purposes. True to its mission of giving back to society, Possible PC will refurbish computers and donate for free, as well as sponsoring a child or family through its wish-list program, among other poverty alleviation schemes.
Possible PC’s wish-list is a simplified method for the less fortunate to access the company’s noble campaign. A request form is available at the company’s website, www.possiblepc.com, where names of families or children who need computers but can’t afford them can be inputted.
Speaking about their campaign, a company executive said: “We aim to empower communities and to help create a sustainable future for our planet. Our goal is to place thousands of computers and laptops to low-income families in need every month through our website, and our monthly give away community program.”
Possible PC is looking to partner with non-profit Organizations or institutions dealing with at risk youths and kids, low-income housing, counties and cities government, are requested to submit a proposal on the company’s website for consideration. Due to the high volume of computers given to the community each month, Possible PC has made calls for volunteers to lend a helping and make a difference in people’s lives. The company needs experienced personnel such as PC technicians, software installers, cleaners, and packers.
