HOW DO WE CHANGE LIVES?
How many times were you on your computer, tablet, or smart phone today? How many of your personal and professional activities would be hampered, if not stopped, without technology?
My guess is several, if not most. Truly technology has become a way of life for us. More than that, technology has quickly become a way of connection AND a way of social mobility. What I mean by that is technology and technology access empowers people to be better educated and then to provide better for themselves and their families. At its best, technology is a social class leveler. It allows diverse kinds of people to connect for a variety of reasons. It allows people to be better informed, better educated, and better connected to opportunities for personal and professional development. Technology is one way of honoring Ubuntu. Ubuntu is a South African philosophy that means “I am what I am because of who we all are.” Our future, our success, is intricately bound with yours.
You might also be aware that globally many people do not have the same access to technology or education for how to use that technology. How can we in the United States do anything about this?
We, at Connection Ubuntu have a very specific way you can help this access and education happen. Our mission is to supply computers and other mobile devices to students and entrepreneurs in Africa. These tools allow recipients to gain technical knowledge and confidence to achieve their dreams of success and self-sufficiency.
By now, you may be asking, so what does this have to do with me? Today is your chance to participate in the digital revolution and to honor that we in the world are connected in more ways than we can possibly imagine. Numerous Africans now enjoy technology of computers because of the generous donations of funds or used computers to Connection Ubuntu from individuals and corporations here in the United States. Together, we change lives.
