 Empowering Windward School Children With Technology

 Keiki at Blanche Pope Elementary School in Waimānalo and Kahaluʻu Elementary School started the year 2021 with computers donated by Hawaiian Electric’s information and technology services department.
     Refurbished laptops and desktop sets with mon- itors, keyboards and mice were delivered to the schools by company nonprofit partners Hawaiʻi Farm Bureau, Center for Tomorrow’s Leaders, Ha- waiian Hope, and Aloha Medical Mission’s state Sen. Glenn Wakai and state Rep. Sonny Ganaden.
The schools were identified as having a dire need of these computer resources, and thanks to a streamlined donation process approved by Hawaiʻi Public Utilities Commission, they were able to ex- pedite delivery through local nonprofits and em- power Hawaiʻi keiki with the technology tools to enhance their learning experience.
Students at Kalihi Kai Elementary School and Dole Middle School also got the computer equip- ment. Through this effort, the schools received expedited delivery of 115 refurbished laptops and desktops through the coordinated distribution. The organized community giving took place at the end of December in time for the new year.
