If you believe in promoting digital inclusion and repurposing computers for the next generation. Please make a tax-deductible donation to help RRRcomputer achieve its mission.
Since 2015, RRRcomputer has promoted digital inclusion by refurbishing would-be destroyed laptops and distributing them to low-income k-12 kids in the San Francisco Bay Area. In total, we have transferred over $760,000 in value of laptops and impacted 990 people in our communities and hosted coding classes with the intent to equip students with computer literacy and prepare them for the growing digital workforce of their hometowns.
Now that distance learning has become a prevalent factor in kids’ lives, maximizing educational efforts has become increasingly significant. In order to resume the mission of teaching our laptop recipients, we are running a campaign to help cover numerous costs. With the launch of RRRcomputer.org Summer Coding Class we are seeking aid for financial sustainability as we introduce virtual learning to our operations.
Donations will help us meet the demands of other students who sign up, and assist us in expanding our project to more cities in the bay area.
Delivering the subject matter will be our team of volunteers who have backgrounds in computer science, web design, and teaching.
Our Recent Impact:
In 2018, the SFUSD (San Francisco School District) reported more than half of its 54,063 students were socioeconomically disadvantaged, due in large part to the city’s rising cost of living. A key indicator of child poverty within San Francisco were few schools having as have as high as 85% eligibility for free or subsidized lunches.
Thurgood Marshall Academic High School in San Francisco has a series of senior seminars where students discern interests in colleges and careers, complete college applications and scholarships. Using collected funds from coding class sponsors and donors, we got to work on communicating with the school. And on September 19, 2019, RRRcomputer.org distributed $15,000 in MacBook Air computers so programs like theirs can continue serving. Donate here or if you can't please share on your social media.
