1. Closing the digital divide:
The primary goal of providing equitable access to technology is to close the digital divide, which refers to the gap between those who have access to technology and those who do not.
By ensuring that everyone has access to the tools and resources they need to thrive in today’s digital world, we can create a more just and equitable society.

2. Empowering under-resourced communities.
Another goal of providing equitable access to technology is to empower under-resourced communities,
such as low-income individuals, people of color, and rural communities. By providing access to technology and digital literacy education,
these communities can better
compete in the job market and access educational and economic opportunities.

3. Bridging the skills gap.
A key goal of providing digital literacy education is to bridge the skills gap between those who have the knowledge and skills to use technology effectively and those who do not. By providing digital literacy training, we can ensure that everyone has the skills they need to succeed in today’s digital world.

4. Fostering innovation.
By providing access to technology and resources, we can foster innovation and creativity, and empower individuals to create and share new ideas and products. This can lead to economic growth and job creation, as well as a more vibrant and dynamic society.

5. Promoting social inclusion.
By ensuring that everyone has access to technology and digital literacy education, we can promote social inclusion and reduce the risk of social isolation. This is especially important for vulnerable populations, such as seniors and people with disabilities, who may have limited access to traditional forms of social interaction.

Overall, the goals of providing equitable access to technology, digital literacy education, and resources are to create a more just and equitable society, empower under- resourced communities, bridge the skills gap, foster innovation, and promote social inclusion.

Where do we go from here

As a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing access to technology, there are many ways we can move forward and continue making an impact:

1. Expand our reach. We will consider reaching out to more communities and expanding our programs to help even more people gain access to technology. This could involve establishing new partnerships or creating new initiatives that address the unique needs of different communities.

2. Develop new programs and initiatives. Keep up-to-date with the latest trends and developments in technology, and explore new ways to help under-resourced communities benefit from these advances. We will consider developing new programs that focus on emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, or virtual reality.

3. Measure and evaluate our impact. In order to effectively evaluate the impact of our organization’s programs and initiatives, we will consider developing an impact measurement and evaluation plan. This will help us assess the effectiveness of our work and identify areas for improvement.


4. Engage with the wider community. We will consider engaging with other non- profit organizations, government agencies, and local businesses to promote digital equity and increase access to technology. We will collaborate with others can help expand our reach and make a greater impact in the communities we serve.

5. Explore funding opportunities.To continue providing programs and initiatives that help under-resourced communities, consider exploring new funding opportunities. This could involve apply for grants, seeking individual donations, or developing corporate partnerships.

By continuing to innovate, expand our reach, and collaborate with others, California Technological Care can continue to make a positive impact and help bridge the digital divide.

Planned Activities To Generate Access to Technology


1. Create community technology centers which provide access to computers, the internet, and other technology resources.

2. Provide refurbished computers to individuals or organizations in need.

3. Distribute mobile devices. In areas where high-speed internet is not available, distributing mobile devices that can access the internet can provide access to technology to those who would otherwise be left behind. Secure donations of mobile devices, or partner with mobile providers to offer discounted or free devices to under-resourced communities.

4. Offer digital literacy training. Provide digital literacy training can help bridge the skills gap and ensure that everyone has the skills they need to use technology effectively. This can be done through workshops, classes, online tutorials, or other forms of training, and can cover a range of topics from basic computer skills to more advanced training in areas like coding and programming.

5. Promote affordable high-speed internet for under-resourced communities by partnering with internet service providers or advocating for policy changes that support affordable internet access.

6. Create public Wi-Fi hotspots in areas where high-speed internet is not available especially for those who do not have access to internet at home. California Technological Care (CTC) can partner with local businesses, libraries, and community centers to create public Wi-Fi hotspots that are accessible to all.
