Comp-U-Dopt, Inc. was conceived as a way to narrow the digital divide and to reduce e-Waste.
With technology rapidly changing and advancing, a digital divide grows between individuals with understanding and access to technology and individuals without. At the same time, the obsolescence of personal computers has fallen to just two years. Nearly 75% of computers collect in homes are stockpiled in warehouses or end up in landfills. Comp-U-Dopt, Inc. strives to address both of these issues through computer refurbishing and the computer "adoption" program. Donated, refurbished computers are given, after a two-hour training session, to children in grades 3-8 for use in their homes. These computers not only help children develop increasingly necessary technology skills, they also benefit society and the environment by providing another generation of use for serviceable computers.
