Our Mission & Objectives
One of the most important aspects of technology in education is its ability to level the field of opportunity for students.
- John King, U.S. Secretary of Education
FixNGive, a student-run organization, is dedicated to providing underfunded schools and underprivileged youth with access to technological tools, enhancing educational opportunities. We recognize the crucial role of technological and internet access to fuel a fulfilling and complete education - such unlimited access is our goal for all students, so that our future leaders of all fields have the resources to develop vast knowledge of the world and innovate powerfully.
Studies show the undisputed advantage technology offers - on average, students who used computer-based instruction scored at the 64th percentile on tests of achievement compared to students in control conditions without computers who scored at the 50th percentile.1 Further studies reveal that students in technology-rich environments showed increased achievement in preschool through higher education for both regular and special needs children.2
Our overarching objective is to maximize our impact towards youth and the accompanying educational environment, as we strive to encourage exploration and possibility at such an important developmental stage.
