In the developed world, Information Technology (IT) is a booming business, providing sustainable income for millions. This sadly is not the case in every part of the world. Through the Hackers For Charity Classrom Initiative, people in underdeveloped countries of the world’s most remote areas, we can offer them training for basic computer skills (word processing, photo editing, CD copying and printing, etc). This provides an extremely viable source of sustainable income. By providing relevant, marketable skills training, we empower students, providing them with a bright future in which they can support themselves and their families without the need for charitable “handouts”.
However, computer training is expensive and far out of reach to those which need it the most. Enter the Hackers For Charity Classroom Initiative. The goal of our Classroom Initiative is to make computer training available to those that could not normally afford it. Each classroom is a joint venture. Corporations, individual members of the community and anonymous donors have played a role in each project. Also, be sure to see the “upgraded” version of the classroom initiative. Our community centers extend training
to students as well as members of the community, greatly expanding the reach of our training. Click here to learn more about our community centers.
