Mission Statement

300FOR300 is a 501(c)(3) education based non-profit that provides free laptops and writing courses to middle school aged girls of color in Louisville, Kentucky. Through our efforts young women of color will be given the chance to share their stories and dreams with the world. Our mission is to create massive positive action in the face of inequality and injustice. By sharing stories, we believe we can create a more compassionate community for young girls in Louisville. We plan to give away 300 laptops to 300 local girls.
