The University of Louisville made its first donation of surplus computers to No Child Left Offline on Thursday. The program recycles and refurbishes surplus state computers and distributes them to eighth graders without computers at home. U of L is the first institute of higher education to contribute computers to No Child Left Offline. The initial donation included 77 computers.
“We are committed to using our resources to address the critical needs of Kentucky citizens,” said President James Ramsey. “We know how important it is to help every student succeed. By giving students computers they can use at home, we can help them do better in school.”
According to ConnectKentucky, approximately 215,000 Kentucky children live in homes without computers.
