Imagine two middle schoolers -- one can afford a home computer and the other cannot. Which one do you think will do much better in school?
Kramden Institute is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charitable institution whose mission is to help less-advantaged students in our communities bridge the 'digital divide' by locating and refurbishing used/recycled computers to donate to kids who work hard in school, but cannot afford home computers.
Secondary missions include encouraging the recycling and reuse of computer hardware by extending the useful life of computers, and to develop educational programs to study computer recycling and the impact of bringing a computer into a less-advantaged home.
Since 2003, KI has had a direct impact on changing the lives of children by providing them an internet ready computer. These students are students of promise, and we see our role as empowering the next generation of innovators.
This program has grown from a project in a private home to help the kids from one middle school to having our own headquarters, warehouse, 3 paid employees and over 3,000 volunteers! To date Kramden has awarded over 6,500 computers
