NO COST Internet & Tablet Program
The Global Economic Impact Group (GEIG) was established on the principles of providing economic and social impact to the community at large. It is our goal through the WHOOP Program, which is a federally funded program, to distribute Android tablet computers to individuals receiving any form of federal assistance. It is our goal through this program to distribute Android tablet computers and internet access to the community at no cost, with the intended goal to close the digital divide within underrepresented communities.
GEIG plans to distribute the tablets to non-profit entities and churches of all faiths. GEIG will donate $5 per tablet to each organization distributing these tablets. It is the ultimate goal of GEIG to not only close the digital divide but connect communities and organizations to create positive educational programs and /or training opportunities and to share events or concerns that impact the community. Our hope is that the funding received from each tablet will be used to create positive information, training, and services for the community.
The potential outcomes in participating in this ‘Community Benefits Program’ include the following:
- Providing access to and closing the digital divide
- Proving a platform for the dissemination of positive information
- Providing internet connectivity throughout the community
- Providing economic resources to underserved or under-represented communities
