The Victoria House Foundation (VHF) has been a vital resource to schools in developing countries and the inner cities in the United States by providing not just computers, internet access, printers, and school supplies, but also ongoing maintenance and support for these technological tools. By providing computers, Internet access and other peripherals, VHF is helping to bridge the gap in technology and also preparing our future leaders for the global competitive economy
Public schools in Nigeria, lack the technological tools needed to steadily grow and not left behind. Not having computer skills at an early age will put the kids at a disadvantage and set them up for failure in college and later the global workforce. The other challenge faced by these schools is the lack of Internet access. Endemic poverty is a common characteristics faced by schools in developing countries and the schools simply can't afford the luxury of the Internet.

In addition, VHF promotes STEM through its Connect2Empower STEM Workshop for inner city kids, by engaging them in the fun and excitement that comes with coding
With the use of computers and internet access, students can develop the skills and knowledge that is essential in today's workforce. In order to break the cycle of poverty, VHF is committed to helping kids in Nigeria and other developing countries, and inner city kids to achieve their potential by taking an interest in STEM - the jobs of tomorrow. By introducing tomorrow's leaders and workers to STEM and ensuring their access to technology, to gain a competitive edge in the global economy.
