The WTA provides refurbished computers and training classes to low-income familes, the homeless and unemployed adults. Through a collaboration with the Community for Creative Non-Violence (CCNV), the largest homeless shelter in America, students, the homeless and community volunteers obtain technology service learning experience by refurbishing computers and providing technology training to low-income adults.
We are now wanted to expand our reach to Africa, where homeless people from the shelter refurbish USA technology then export it to impoverished schools in West Africa and Tanzania. It's a win-win !
There are many foundations, corporations, and government agencies that provide funding for programs like this. Yet, we do not have enough volunteers to build out our web site, write the grants or build the necessary relationships. We also need a lot of help organizing the program and our paperwork. We need non-profit fund developers and administrative support volunteers to help us raise money and surplus computers and organize our offices for our programs in Washington DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
