Empower people in-need with vital access to digital technology
This Giving Tuesday, give families like Tagia's the technology they need to thrive
Everything changed for Tagia and her family when they received a laptop and low-cost internet from Human-I-T.
Suddenly, they could do things like find and apply for better-paying jobs, attend school online, and become civically engaged with their community – all because of the support of our donors.
This Giving Tuesday, donate to Human-I-T to empower families like Tagia’s with the digital tools and connectivity they need to unlock their full potential.
How Human-I-T drives digital access in our communities
When you give to Human-I-T, 100% of your donation goes directly to funding digital inclusion programs in America’s most disconnected communities.
At Human-I-T, we promote four pillars of digital inclusion: affordable devices, low-cost internet access, digital skills training, and tech support for communities on the wrong side of the digital divide.
Collectively, these services move us toward a future in which all individuals and communities have the information and technology they need for full participation in our society, democracy, and economy.
We partner with community-based organizations to provide donated and low-cost laptops, tablets, and desktops to individuals in-need
In order for individuals to fully take advantage of technology, we provide connections to low-cost internet service providers in their local areas - no matter where they are.
Digital skills training
Technology is only as useful as someone’s ability to use it. That's why we partner with community-based organizations to provide free, bilingual digital literacy training.
We know how frustrating it can be when technology breaks down. That's why we provide free support on-demand for every individual who has received a device from us.
Digital equity is social equity
Right now, 163 million Americans lack access to personal technology and high-speed internet at home. You can change that right now. By donating to drive digital equity, you’re empowering hundreds of millions of people to live their best lives. At-risk youth achieve higher grades and are less likely to drop out. Senior citizens lead healthy lives into old age. Single parents raise their wages and their standard of living. Communities become more equitable.
When students have access to digital technology, they’re able to complete schoolwork without relying on public Wi-Fi and explore their hobbies and interests. Simply put: they thrive in and out of the classroom.
America’s least-connected counties have a 25% higher prevalence of obesity and a 41% higher prevalence of diabetes. Driving digital equity will do more than just transform the lives of people who live in these communities – it will save them.
Digitally-connected workers earn wages that are, on average, between 3 and 5% higher than their digitally-disconnected colleagues. When workers’ wages rise, so does their standard of living, quality of life, and likelihood to open a business of their own.
