Accentedge Pledges Support For Underserved Communities in Chicago
Foundation To Provide Students With Computers and Internet Access
Chicago, Illinois – Syed Alam, Founder & CEO of accentedge LLC announced today his company is expanding its mission to help provide computers, internet access and support for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) education programs serving youth in Chicago.
“The civil unrest we have seen in Chicago in recent days underscores the racial disparities and lack of opportunity that is real for people who live here,” Alam said, “with the Covid-19 lockdown and closing of schools, many young people in our city don’t even have computers or internet access for on-line classes that are available. Our goal is to provide resources for these students so they can continue to have access to their education.”
The Accentedge Foundation currently supports STEAM education programs in Chicago and is expanding its efforts to provide computers and internet access to young people in the city. The project partners with local companies who are donating used computers that can be recycled for students to use at home.
“We want to encourage students to succeed in an area or career they love, and to do that they need the tools, resources and support to pursue their interests.” Alam added, “we are thankful to our business partners in this effort and believe this program can make a difference for young people in our community.”
