About Us

Obselete To Opportunity

Communitech is a nonprofit, founded and led by Meridian graduates, that aims to reduce the amount of electronic devices that end up in landfills, and instead give them to people in the local community that have limited access to technology.

We are committed to bridging the digital divide and empowering underserved communities through technology. Our mission is to provide access to opportunities, knowledge, and innovation by donating refurbished computers to those in need. By repurposing and revitalizing technology, we strive to create a sustainable and inclusive future where everyone can harness the power of digital tools.

By providing internet access, devices, and digital skills training, Communitech is equipping individuals with the tools and resources they need to participate in the modern economy. Bridging the digital divide not only creates job opportunities in the technology sector but also enables people from underserved communities to access online job marketplaces and digital entrepreneurship opportunities.

Communitech empowers marginalized individuals and communities by equipping them with the necessary tools and knowledge to participate in the digital world, thereby narrowing the gap between those who have access to technology and those who do not.
