Computers for Kids

Helping all kids see the future.


Reno Host Lions affiliate delivers free computers and software to children

The Reno Cigar Lions (RCL) have a mission: Give children a chance to become part of the 21st Century by giving them computers in their homes. Schools are able to provide an introduction to technology but because of their limited budgets, not the chance of total immersion. Without experimentation, many potentially talented students will miss an opportunity to show what they are capable of doing or learn advanced techniques.

With a combination of donated computers, open source software, partnerships with local organizations and lots of enthusiasm, the members of RCL are changing the lives of children with their Computers for Kids program.
