Cross the Digital Divide

Cross the Digital Divide

Kramden Institute is all about leveling the playing field in this rapidly advancing digital world. Our dedicated team works tirelessly to provide technology tools and valuable training programs that effectively bridge the digital divide. 

Since its establishment back in 2003, Kramden has been unwavering in our commitment to empower deserving families across North Carolina and beyond with access to computers. We have managed to distribute over 53,000 computers so far! These machines find their way into the homes of individuals who may not have had the means or resources to acquire one otherwise; thereby giving them a fair chance at success. 

Our efforts open doors for learning, exploration, connection, and opportunity and help countless households break free from limitations imposed by the digital divide.

It's been a blessing having been awarded with the laptop. I have been able to do telework and [my child] is learning how to use it to do school work.

Lina Cline

I am a senior citizen on disability. I have many doctors and medications to keep up with and getting on MyChart has been a blessing. Also online banking has helped me. I took a class online and I could talk with family and friends online. I have only had my computer for a little over a month. It is a life saver.

Deborah Slaney

To access my social services information on my phone is difficult. Doing emails on my phone is limited. Now I can stay more organized. This computer is a godsend!
