Have you ever tried to write a term paper, solve a math problem, or take an exam on your cell phone? Almost impossible? Yet many students are doing their best to complete school with nothing more than their phone.
TechCharities and many others are committed to help close the gap. As of October 31, TechCharities, in partnership with others, has provided 1653 computers to students internationally.
It has been a busy year. Here is a summary:
