Original story by Diane McCarthy and Teo Kermeliotis, CNN
Can you imagine what today’s generation would do without computers? While we in the Western world have had this luxury for years, many children in Africa have not. Thanks to Ghana native Seth Owusu, this is slowly changing.
Seth Owusu came to the United States in 1991 from Ghana after being inspired by missionaries to help strangers. While in America, he created the Entire Village Computers Organization, a nonprofit that donates refurbished computers and delivers them to the developing world. Through this organization, he is using the power of technology to provide computer literacy to children who otherwise have access to none. So far, Owusu has been able to successfully refurbish and donate 233 computers all of which he has upgraded himself.
Through organizations such as this and projects like ours, change is slowly being seen throughout Africa.
“If we want to change the world, we have to start by changing the people who are going to be the world tomorrow, who are the kids.” –Seth Owusu
Beautifully said Seth Owusu. Beautifully said.
