In response to this great need, Roya Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides international humanitarian relief and educational assistance has started a program to provide laptops and as need internet access to needy Children.
Founder and CEO of Roya Foundation Mitra Behnam and her team have been raising funds in private donations for this project. The laptops/chrome books are certified refurbished Dell Chromebooks, HP Chromebooks, and Samsung Chromebooks. The first round of these computers distributed on August 13, 2020, to homeless & Low-income students free of charge and they are theirs to keep, not loaned. Roya Foundation has been working with Tracy Unified School District’s Prevention Services Department to identify and refer to homeless and low-income families, but anyone who is eligible is invited to apply.
To be eligible, applicants must be homeless (this includes couch surfing, staying with a friend or relative, in a motel or shelter, living in a vehicle, or otherwise without a regular place or residence), or low-income by HHS poverty guidelines which published in the Federal Register, and be caring for a student grade K-12 or college. Homeless youth up to age 21 who are enrolled in college, vocational school, or other types of higher education are also eligible.
