ETEK is a non-profit organization that raises funds to acquire educational technology (i.e., laptops, software, and internet access) and provide these tools, free of charge, to nominated children and young adults. ETEK will work with other non-profit organizations to identify recipient children and young adults.
Long-term, ETEK envisions a group of non-profit components under the ETEK umbrella. These non-profit groups will specialize in various components of acquiring and giving away educational technology and other forms of technological support to enhance educational opportunities for underprivileged children and young adults with ETEK. This particular non-profit component, started by ETEK, is laptops4kidz and can be found on the internet at www.laptops4kidz.org, etek4kidz.org and etekcares.org.
