Bridging the Digital Divide: The Wichita NAACP "E-Literacy" Campaign gets underway with the distribution of 17 free computers



The Wichita NAACP E-Literacy campaign officially got underway this afternoon with the distribution of 17 free computers. The objective of this campaign is to gather used computers from various companies as they upgrade their equipment, prep the computers with the necessary software and or operating systems, and redistribute them to organizations or programs designed to promote technological literacy to youth or seniors. Dr. Tony Turner, Uzo Ohaebosim, and others came out to help carry, set up, and prep the computers for distribution.

The first ten computers were donated to First United Christian Church for a program named the MLK Project. The program is designed to work with youth who have struggled academically by helping to improve their study and research skills. Eight more computers were donated to St. Paul AME Church who will use them to create a computer lab for the youth of their congregation.
