Computers for those in need

A computer can be life-changing. In today's world, a working computer is essential to helping newcomers, Indigenous communities and those in need access in formation, conduct job searches and home-school children during this pandemic. Since COVID-19 changed the world in early March, we have been putting desktop computers into the hands of people left behind because of the digital divide. 

We are now providing refurbished computers based on rolling intake to low income families and individuals. All computers come with a printed booklet about computer basics 101, as well as learning videos loaded right on the desktop. Those same learning videos and printed booklets will be available to outside organizations and individuals as needed or requested. For more information, please email digitalliteracy@techmanitoba.ca

Unfortunately, now more than ever, people who lack digital skills and computers are being left out. Read more here.
