Potential recipients of the Global Digital Divide's gifts of new and used mobile phones, tablets, notebooks and desktop computers will include schools, students, individuals and/or groups. Final recipients will be qualified based on access to support services (cellular network, Wi-Fi, etc.), need and potential impact. The initial operation of Global Digital Divide will concentrate on best qualified schools and their students.
Targeted areas for potential schools include those located in San José city, and out to other areas of San José and Alajuela provinces. Our local knowledge of the schools, customs, geography and language gives us access to a large pool of potential volunteers in those areas.
Volunteers of Global Digital Divide will collect data about candidate schools and, in some cases, visit the schools, make initial observations and conduct interviews with school officials. Initial qualified schools will then submit a written application stating its current technological means, what access it and its students have to support services, and what the provided mobile technology will be used for and its potential impact. Global Digital Divide will choose the most qualified schools to distribute available mobile technology. It will also determine which mobile technology to distribute and in which quantity.
Potential recipients of the Global Digital Divide's gifts of new and used mobile phones, tablets, notebooks and desktop computers will include firefighters, police officers, veterans, kids and retired people. Final recipients will be qualified based on need and potential impact. The initial operation of Global Digital Divide will concentrate on hospitals, retirement communities, places of religious worship and those in need who contact us.
Targeted recipients include those in long-term hospital stays, those unable to leave their homes and/or limited in their physical mobility. The dispersed technology should provide a way for these people to communicate easily and visually with family and friends, provide educational tools and entertainment during their recovery or limited day-to-day life.
