The community has over 1000 children, youths and adults that have LIMITED or NO exposure to computer training. Access to computers and training will enable them to become computer proficient.

This project will help to eradicate the problem of computer illiteracy for children and youths in a community where there are no modern and free computer training facilities.Through the computers and provided training, they will learn how to use a computer extensively, opening them up to new educational, employment and business opportunities. This training will help bridge the Digital Divide and the opportunity gap. The educational training will help release their potential and abilities.


Funds will be used to purchase computers and provide on-going training. This project will provide direct access to computers for use by the Door of Hope community. Access to the computers and training will transform their lives. Computer training and access to the Internet is a proven "game changer".
