Make "1 Kid, 1 Computer" a reality

 At RRRcomputer.org, our vision is to make "1 Kid, 1 Computer" a reality.  Our mission is to enhance education by reclaiming, refurbishing, and reusing computers to provide K-12 kids equal access to education. To prevent e-waste in the environment, we receive computers from corporations and individuals through donations.  They would also satisfy their Corporate Social Responsibilities as well as getting tax deduction.  We then refurbish them and distribute to deserving children who may not have the opportunity to own or access a computer. Donate $50, 1 kids from 1 families will receive a computer.

A family received a computer during Christmas 2015 distribution

Christmas 2015 Distribution During Christmas 2015 distribution in heavy pouring rain, there was a family was determined to come to get the computer for her 4 children.  She was homeless some time after she applied.  She found out that her landlord was not an actual landlord whom she had been paying to.  So now she is without a home with her kids attending school.  She told us that having a computer would help her kids to keep up with their classmates in the classes.  They can now go to the cafe to use the internet for the kids’ research for homework.  We wish them the best of luck.

June 2015 Donation Drive

June 2015 Computer Donation   RRRcomputer.org is making progress in realizing our mission to provide computers to children in this latest phase. In June, we received a corporate donation of identical computers. Receiving identical computers makes it easier for us to refurbish and re-image. The laptops were refurbished during the 3rd quarter, and loaded with a new operating system, OpenOffice™, and access to online word processing tools like Google Docs as well as email services. These laptops are being distributed to deserving Bay Area children December 18 – 19, 2015, 6:00 – 7:30pm, at the Perch Coffee House, 440 Grand Ave, Oakland, CA.
