How it all started
Community Computers Regina began with a simple act of generosity in 2006.
Back in 2006 Robert Jozsa (Founder of Community Computers Regina) was selling used computers for a non profit he worked for. There he met a young family looking to buy their first computer. On deciding what to buy the mother turned to her two kids and asked them if this is what they wanted. She said "Now you understand that if I buy this we can't get you shoes for school." Moved by the choice this family had to make, Robert gave the computer to the family, free of charge.
A computer for school, to do homework or look for work, or buy shoes for the kids. Not a choice any parent should have to make, certainly not a choice a kid should have to make. However it is a choice families in Regina are forced to make every day. We often take for granted many of the things that make living in a digital age possible.
Since 2006 the technology has shifted from desktop computers, to laptops, to tablets and smarts phones and need for access to technology has grown. Today there are many families throughout Regina without regular access to basic computer technology.
We at Community Computers Regina are here to help change that.
