Georgia-based non-profit bridges the "digital divide": If there's one thing the pandemic has proven, it's that access to technology is vital -- especially for students. Inspiredu is a Georgia-based non-profit (a spin-off of PowerMyLearning), focused on providing student and their families the technology they need for education. That means working laptops, desktop computers, and tablets, given to local families at no charge.
