Our world is continuing to evolve. Day by day. Hour by hour. And unless we are all equipped with the tools we need to be strong citizens, contributors, and leaders in the world, we have no future. That is why, we are so excited to announce our newest and biggest project yet, Digital Devolve (digital - technology , devolve - transfer or delegate power to a lower level )
Stemmed out or the notion that education is becoming more and more digital, as well as the fact that since the rise of COVID-19, remote learning is out of reach to about 500 million children globally according to the UN, we have decided to launch a project to make our leaders LISTEN, ACT, and CHANGE. If we believe all people should have access to education and opportunity, having access to technology is the first step to creating our vision.Now, this is a huge problem effecting people in all corners of the world, so you might be wondering what is our POA (Plan of Action).
We have divided this project into 4 main phases: awareness, outreach, action and change. In each of the phases, we have planned many activities , conversations and events to take place to engage as many people as possible including YOU! We know that together making a difference is possible!
Important aspects of Digital Devolve
In this phase, we will be having weekly Instagram lives with people in the education and technology sectors to talk about their point of view on the cause and the overall importance of access to technology in education, especially in developing countries. We will post updates on when these will be happening and who we will be interviewing. Here are our past recorded instagram lives:

The importance of technology and the digital divide:
We wanted to know our team’s thoughts on technology for our current project Digital Devolve so we asked them “Why is technology helpful or important in your life right now? What do you think about the Digital Divide?”
Dollar to defeat:
On June 12th 2021, Project Power Global (PPG) hosted "Dollar to Defeat": a panel-style event to raise money and awareness about the digital divide in and how it has impacted millions of students around different parts of the world due to the rise of COVID-19 and not having access to technological devices and/or internet. As the name suggests, each attendee paid a dollar to enter the panel, which is helping PPG ship computers and tablets to an orphanage in Mexico. Thank you to all who contributed and attended this event!
