International Support

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:

Distributing computers to other countries is not easy. It requires the joint effort of many, including:
 
  • Mark and Maylene Millburn
  • The Lord’s Hand Foundation (Steve Kapila, David Rupper, Rick Hutchins, Alex Omole. et al)
  • Help Start Education Foundation (Brent Evans, Greg Whittaker, Lynn Burton, Lupe Fuimaono, Stephen Abu … )
  • Sorenson Legacy Foundation
  • Facilities ( Derrick and Rebecca Porter)
  • IT Green Solutions Recycling
  • BYU Pathway leaders (John Wilson, Brad and LaWynn Baird, Lorri Cummings, and many more.
  • Donation of computers ( Lynn Samsel, CapitalOne, KSL, Wadsworth, DMBA …)
  • And, committed staff and volunteers.
