E2D ("Eliminate the Digital Divide") is a non-profit agency that was founded due to two simple questions that an enlightened 12 year-old girl asked her parents in October 2012:
- How can all kids in our school do their homework and projects successfully if some of their families are too poor to own digital technology?
- What are we doing to do about it? Beginning in 2013, E2D has worked successfully with 21 schools within the Charlotte Mecklenburg School (CMS) system. As of the end of 2015 over 1,000 families have bridged the digital divide using laptops, digital access and computer training sourced and provided by E2D.
The mission of E2D is to insure that every student in Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools has the proper computer technology and support to achieve academic success. E2D is committed successfully eliminating the digital divide for all public school students.
