The Austin Prometheus Project
Since 2005, The HeliOS Project has provided over 1200 rebuilt or refurbished computers to disadvantaged Austin kids.
While it has been gratifying to do so, we also know that just over 30 percent of those computers remain unconnected to the Internet. $35.00 a month might not sound like much, but to a family who struggles simply to pay rent and put food on the table, this monthly expenditure is out of reach.
While there is little we can do to help those already receiving one of our computers, we can move forward and insure the families that are truly in need are able to connect. Our HeliOS kids will compete for grades and scholarships in the future and giving them a computer without Internet access is like giving them a home without doors.
We hope you will join us in our effort in connecting these kids to their futures. Your donation of 35.00 gives us the ability to provide one months service to one of our kids. We are also contacting Austin businesses to ask for their help. If you are interested in helping Austin Prometheus, you can click here to make your donation. As always, your gift is tax deductable.
Thanks for putting the technology of today into the hands of tomorrow.
