About Computers 4 Kids
Computers 4 Kids (C4K) is an innovative project that brings together public and private partners to help disadvantaged children and their families join the Information Age. This is accomplished by placing computers in the hands of disadvantaged populations so that they have access to abundant technological resources and can perform basic computing functions.
In Kentucky, Computers 4 Kids has successfully facilitated cooperation among private partners, corporate foundations and state government to place computers into the hands of underprivileged and disadvantaged individuals. ConnectKentucky’s C4K is meeting the challenge of including these citizens in the digital age through these creative public-private partnerships. C4K, as an initiative, is as flexible as today’s technology. C4K has delivered nearly 3,500 Internet-ready computers to disadvantaged individuals and populations across the state.
