Our Mission:

To promote digital inclusion by repurposing computing devices for the next generation

We reduce computer waste by refurbishing donated computers to put back into circulation for kids to use for internet research, online learning, and doing their homework. The computers that don't become e-waste can become a useful tools that bridge the learning gap for underserved students. By donating computers to kids, we are doing our part in reducing e-waste that harms our planet.

After computers are donated from individuals and businesses, we need help in refurbishing the computers to be distributed. The following is a break down of how you can help achieve our goal of "One kid one computer."

Please adhere to the CDC guidelines which includes not contacting people if you are feeling unwell, using a mask, and making any handovers as contact-less as possible. Normally, Technicians would all gather to refurbish computers.

Now, we are asking our IT Technicians to pick up the computers (if possible) and fix them at their homes. You will be in virtual contact with other IT Technicians and the President to tell you what to do. Again, if possible, you can then transport the refurbished computers to our storage in Oakland.

Mission Statement

RRRcomputer.org's mission is: "Diverting computers from recycling to desks of K-12 kids." We want to change the corporate culture to get a tax deductible computer donation instead of sending useable computers to be recycled for parts. If you have contact with companies, it would be great if you can spread the word about our goals of using the computers for education. Please visit RRRcomputer.org for detail info on the drive. You may contact us at 1-844-900-RRRC or donate@RRRcomputer.org to schedule a drop off or pickup outside of the donation drive date. Please spread the word with your social media. With your help, we all can help bridge the digital divide one kid at a time.

Description

We are looking for volunteer leaders from the IT, Education, and Environmental professions to help make our organization a success. We are also looking for students from high schools, colleges and universities who want to make a difference in a kid's life by offering expertise in computer technology, education, and saving the environment. It takes a village to raise a kid; it also takes a community to help a kid in need catch up with the digital age.
