Mission Statement

The Shawmut Education computer repair refurbishment and deployment program is another example of how we use capacity building methods in order to help the digitally disadvanteged and provide a bridge across the digital divide. Computers donated to our organization are refurbished in a "learning process".

The learning process
  1. Demystifies many concepts important to understanding technology as individuals receive the opportunity to actually touch a hard drive (C:) as well feel a network card and other important hardware necessary for computer functionality.
  2. Allows individuals to learn, as well as take pride in the fact that their learning and work helped someone less fortunate. Shawmut Education refurbished computers are deployed in areas outside of the United States.
  3. The deployment of computers allow Shawmut Education to provide "distance learning". The process allows us to enhance lives and communities we might otherwise be unable to touch.
  4. Provides computer donors with multiple rewards. Not only are they helping someone here in the local community they are also helping someone in a far off community.

Shawmut Education views the program as an opportunity to provide "inspiration" to individuals and organizations alike. We provide a customized curriculum design that embraces, assimilates and nurtures the human spirit. Through confidence building, and goal achievement, students who complete course study will experience a renewed vigor and desire to play a positive role in their vocational, individual, family and community lives.
