Google To Donate Over 20,000 Computers to Support Refugees Looking To Start Over

By Posted on 0 1 m read

Earlier this week Google.org announced a partnership with Net Hope that will provide 25,000 computers to refugees looking for a fresh start in their individual career fields.

Net Hope is a non-profit organization based out of Germany that offers educational and technological resources for refugees.  Net Hope will disperese the lightweight Chromebooks to nonprofit organizations that are also dedicated to supporting refugees.

“There has been a major break in refugees’ lives in terms of access to education,” Roya Soleimani, a Google Communications Manager, shared with The Huffington Post. “Although many of them were educated in their home countries, they have had to start all over again in Europe.”

Both organizations are hoping that this will be the support that helps these refugees make the changes the need to live the lives they always wanted.

For more information about this partnership, head over to The Huffington Post.
