Mission Statement

Our mission is to connect under-served groups and individuals with digital resources that they would otherwise not be able to access on their own.

Description

Of more than 7 billion people on the planet, only 2 billion have access to the Internet. This is not limited to the developing world. The divide is larger for those in developed communities with no computer literacy/access than for those in developing communities. There are roughly 30 million people here in the United States that do not have access to a computer. At the same time, we throw away roughly 37 million tons of electronics in this country because by current consumer standards they are considered outdated.

We help people and organizations repurpose used technological assets by redistributing them in the local community and internationally. We provide affordable technology to low-income households, set up computer labs for the communities that need them, and help partners who are already doing good work to further their missions. Digital Bridge has installed over 25 computer labs spanning three continents.

We believe that poverty can be further diminished through access to technology , and we rely on the goodwill of partnered nonprofits and businesses to make it happen. Together, our impact includes improving the quality of education in rural Kenya to providing tools to find employment in inner-city Milwaukee.
