Founded in 2007 by Andy Walker and Lisa Shishis, the Little Geeks Foundation is a registered charity that provides computer hardware to disadvantaged families and community service organizations in the Greater Toronto Area. Led now by Hamish Sutherland, Little Geeks continues to make a difference in the lives of young students in the GTA.
We believe that computer technology and Internet access is a fundamental right. Our mission is to provide free computing technology and hardware to children who cannot afford this resource on their own by diverting perfectly good refurbished computers from landfill and giving them to children in need. By providing this access to technology, Little Geeks provides these children with the tools necessary to improve their grades and achieve greater confidence with technology.
Over the past 5 years, we have negotiated tirelessly with the major internet providers to develop partnerships that would deliver either discount or free internet service to our beneficiaries, to no avail. We look forward to a changing market where we can follow through on our belief in free internet access for all students. In the meantime, we struggle to acquire computers and the financial resources to deliver hardware, and look forward to your support.
