- The Bronx has the lowest broadband adoption rates of any borough and the disparities are even more pronounced at the neighborhood level.
- Nearly 1 in 5 teens cannot finish their homework because of the digital divide.
- Roughly one-third of households with children ages 6-17 and whose annual income falls below $30,000 a year do not have a high speed internet connection at home.
The Bronx is home to children, families, seniors and just about every socio-ethnic background on earth. We are rich in diversity and strong as we face the mountainous challenge of building links which will address digital inequities that are still present in our community.
Children cannot learn if they are not able to connect to the internet.
Parents cannot engage with their students, better themselves and their families if they cannot connect to the internet. We are addressing this inequity and doing so head-on, urgently and with conviction.
Our mission is to address the digital inequity in our community and to bring about real change and growth through grants, volunteers, donations and hard work. We believe in the strength of our community and when we come together for a common goal, we will succeed.
