Technology Without Borders (TWB) was founded in the spring of 2009 as a committee of the Campus Y at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by Shaddi Hasan, Calvin Young and Thomas Edwards. The Campus Y is UNC’s center for social justice. TWB’s mission is to bridge the digital divide in all its forms, both at home and abroad. TWB seeks to apply technical solutions to pressing social needs in innovative ways. We focus on ensuring equitable access to technology and in providing technical education to underprivileged groups of society.
TWB serves both kids and adults directly in these communities. Members can participate in our outreach without knowing more “tech” than what brought you to this webpage. This basic amount of tech knowledge is what most of those of the internet era have grown up with and learned over time i.e. Google Search and website navigation. Members of TWB can also engage in indirect service by coordinating events and writing for our blog. You can view our current programs, join our listserv for regular update emails, and contact us with any questions you may have.
Thanks for viewing our site! Hope to see you around!
