Technology has made our world smaller by providing instant global interactivity. For those with the right tools, the world is literally at their fingertips. However, those without adequate means may find a growing divide between themselves and opportunities to improve their lives.
One Economy’s We Are Now Connected Campaign serves as a platform for innovation and opportunity by offering technology and leadership training, mobile resources and broadband Internet access to an estimated 27,000 low-income households.
With digital literacy as a primary focus, Rent-A-Center is pleased to support We Are Now Connected with the delivery of laptop computers to underserved communities across 81 U.S. cities.
The partnership between One Economy and Rent-A-Center brings together technology and resources that empower newly digitally literate individuals to access the Internet regularly to further their education, health and careers.
