In Manchester, seven-hundred-thousand kids were sent home in March 2020 without a PC due to national lockdown. Families are facing hardship because the digital divide is more severe than ever. This campaign aims to bridge the digital divide for children in hardship, while education remains hybrid. A computer in the hands of a child can change their world.
The project goal is to raise funds to buy 50 Raspberry Pi 400 devices to give away to young students who do not have access to computers. The Hub aims to reach a fundraising target of £3250 to achieve this goal, working with the Raspberry Pi Foundation to provide devices at wholesale costs. With this project the Hub aims to improve digital inclusion to the most disadvantaged in our society.
