We also seek partnerships with other non-profit organizations to establish technology centers within the community. Our longest running program is with the Community Technology Center at Palama Settlement. Since its inception in September 2004, the program has been expanding. There are now approximately 650 seniors, adults and kids each month taking computer classes. Many of the seniors and adults had never used a computer before and are very excited about the progress they are making.
