Join Our Season of Giving! ☃️
Share this message to help us bridge the digital divide for refugee students, originally from Afghanistan, who are affected by homelessness.
Holiday Gifts You Can Help Provide
We have witnessed firsthand the bursts of joy that your contributions toward laptops for learning have given our students. This holiday season, we would be incredibly grateful if you would lend your support to students we have identified as Afghani refugees affected by homelessness.
Head to Our Website to Give Back and Transform a Student’s Life 🎁
We are continuing our efforts to ensure technology access and support students affected by homelessness. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues on, we must take a stand to bridge the digital divide. Join our cause to make a difference in social justice and educational equity.

What We Hope to Provide 💻📝
Last year, our wonderful community came together to make our students’ dreams come true. As you are well aware, educational equity is incredibly important so that all students have the opportunity to grow. Therefore, Bridging Tech, in partnership with Global Impact Initiative, will provide each student with their own device, along with mentorship, tutoring, and helpful educational programs. We are making every effort to help under-resourced students succeed in their academic journeys.
Every $100 contribution to our cause this holiday season allows us to give all of these resources to one Afghani student, providing them with the opportunity to create an even more hopeful future.

Thank You to Our Partner
Our team is honored to collaborate with Global Impact Initiative for our holiday campaign. We are grateful to their team for putting in so much hard work so that at the end of the holiday season, each student identified will be fully supported by Bridging Tech’s community.
Global Impact Initiative is one of our long-term partners. In the past, we have provided mentorship to under-resourced students from all backgrounds together. Their team is passionate about helping under-resourced students reach their goals. We are excited to make our students’ dreams come true and look forward to our continuing collaborations!
Do you want to join the cause? ❤️
If you believe in what we advocate for and want to join our team, please consider applying. We always appreciate extra help at Bridging Tech, so we are currently recruiting core team volunteers who can dedicate at least 10 hours weekly for the next year. If you or someone you know are interested in getting involved on a greater level, let’s work together to magnify our impact!
You can become a volunteer or donate. ✨
Thank you for showing support by pledging your time. We will reach out to you when there are opportunities to volunteer by hosting technology donation drives, mentoring our students, or helping out our regional teams in a city near you.
As always, help out by donating your old devices! 💻
With the help of our refurbishing partner, all information from your devices will be wiped, and the devices will then be fixed so that we can provide refurbished devices to students affected by homelessness. Beyond personal devices, check to see if your company has extra devices, and motivate IT and Philanthropy teams to donate hardware to Bridging Tech. Our initiatives promote both educational equity and environmental sustainability!
