When you buy a Keepod, we give one to a person living without computer access.
70% of our world still does not have access to personal computing. That's 5 billion people. In today’s world, computer access is not a luxury. It’s a primary work tool. It unlocks a world of knowledge. It enables people to make change for themselves, by themselves.
Personal Computing Transforms Communities.
Students and teachers gain access to educational resources. Students are more driven to improve their attendance, their knowledge, and their grades.
Communities can more easily broadcast information, share ideas, engage with people around the world, and participate in the global marketplace.
New job opportunities arise in the majority of industries. People can offer their services online, boost productivity, and expand their customer base.
Health care services improve within communities. People can readily connect with doctors and learn about disease prevention, symptoms and treatment.
Through our Keepod Projects, we give Keepods to students, families, and communities that are currently living without personal computing. For each project, we team up with local organizations and computer refurbishers to provide Keepods, computers, and support. We have deployed projects in over 20 countries around the world - in Asia, Africa, South America, and North America - and we are not stopping there.
HOW WE GIVE.
It all begins when you purchase a Keepod.
We give a Keepod to one of our Keepod Projects that needs a donation. For each project, we partner with an NGO or school that works in a community without personal computing access.
We team up with a computer refurbisher to provide our projects with Keepod-Certified Refurbished Computers that boot automatically with Keepods.
Our partner NGO implements the Keepod project on the ground. We provide remote or on-site support to teach the communities how to use Keepods and how to train others.
Voices of Keepod.
