Global Digital Divide had recently announced their newest campaign to help improve lives and education by providing computers underprivileged children and schools in different parts of Costa Rica. The ongoing campaign seeks to help provide computers to needy students and schools in the region. The organization has also set up a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to ask for support from the generous online crowd to help raise at least $10,000 USD within the next 25 days. The money raised will be used to acquire new and used desktop computers, laptops and tablets, prepare them to be used right away and transport them to already qualified Costa Rican students and schools.
The project pitch explains that the ‘global digital divide’ is the gap between individuals, societies and cultures that have access to computer technology and those that do not. This varies in different parts of the world and within societies. However the non-profit organization fully comprehends the effects this divide has on different people, the ones who have easy access to technology such as computers are increasingly taking the privilege for granted while people in other parts of the world including Costa Rica could greatly benefit from access to a computer and internet. The aim of the Global Digital Divide non-profit organization is to reduce this divide and open new opportunities for needy people that access to technology can create.
Global Digital Divide spokesperson explained: “Our newest program is already underway. We at Global Digital Divide, Inc. have already collected 6 desktop computers, 2 laptops, 1 monitor and 1 printer. That’s just a small amount of what we need to provide to meet your goal and not leave any disappointed students and schools.”
An important aspect of sending the computers for students in Costa Rica is preparing each system with different software and learning programs that will help provide maximum benefit to each recipient. Global Digital Divide hopes to improve lives through their generous contributions.
The organization will be providing various perks as a token of appreciation to all those who make monetary contribution towards the cause.

About: Global Digital Divide, Inc. is a registered 501(c) (3) charity, officially started after seeing how difficult it was to acquire such technology and initially bringing a few smart phones and laptops to Costa Rica. After seeing the profound impact it had on the recipients, the idea of Global Digital Divide, Inc. was formed. The husband and wife team decided they could start Global Digital Divide, Inc. and help bring excess computer technology from the USA and elsewhere to Costa Rica but on a much larger scale.
