The Digital Divide - We Can Do Something!

Today I realized that with technology especially the internet there is so much that you can do and achieve. You can leverage a lot of your time and effort.

One of the things that we wanted to do was to help with the digital divide. We did this One Home One PC program last year and we did a small project in Kuala Kangsar (KK). KK is my parents home town. Heck I went to high school in KK at MCKK. It's funny that how you end up going back to your roots.

Anyways we had a program that supplied refurbished PCs to those who can't afford it at a minimum cost. We helped almost 200 families and even with the low price there were still so many who cannot afford it.

The following article in the NST regarding the computer penetration in the country sums it up.

Check it out below at

If you want to do something about it and you have a company that would like to give away their used & old PCs please let us know. Let us have it, refurbished it and give it FREE to the people. That's right! FREE. We can do more people. Let's do more.
