Taking a Bite Out of Planned Obsolescence

Christmas in May!
Christmas in May!

You came through again for African teens struggling to stay on track along the bumpy journey to put Covid behind them! Just as school was starting again full-time for all of our Net Buddies - plus afterhours classes to recoup lost lessons – Microsoft announced the upcoming sunset on the operating system that runs the majority of Infinite Family’s laptops. We’re all for progress, but really not so much for planned obsolescence, especially when it means replacing 80 laptops!

To gain inspiration and motivation for this big lift, we turned to our Net Buddies and some wisdom they had shared with us earlier: How do you eat an elephant? While some of us might debate the best cooking techniques or sauces, their answer was most practical: One bite at a time.

Luckily, GlobalGiving’s April Little x Little campaign was timed perfectly to support our first “bite,” and the second and third. Thanks to YOU, our Infinite Family, we have the first 16 laptops in process for installation at our LaunchPads. It’s like Christmas in May! You have made our Net Buddies’ homework, research, English and math practice, and, of course, their very important VCs (video conversations) with their Video Mentors so much easier, faster and more predictable to achieve!

You can be sure these laptops will #powerup our Net Buddies’ work for many years to come. We appreciate your supporting our Net Buddies yet again and #makingadifference in their daily work to build better futures!

Thank you.
