In 2015, Laptops 4 Learning founder, Dwayne Baker, recognized the need for students he mentored to have access to technology, for educational and employment opportunities. He observed that for many students, school-sponsored technology resources were the only tools available to them to keep up with their assignments. As a veteran, Mr. Baker also wanted to help fellow veterans pursue education and employment opportunities.
Baker formed L4L in direct response to those students he encountered, and the military veterans, who did not have the means to obtain a laptop. This initiative has evolved into a nonprofit organization focused on supplying ANY student and veteran that needs support, with this essential technology tool. Students and veterans are able to set up an account on the L4L website to solicit tax-deductible donations from family, friends, and community members. As soon as the student generates or self-funds laptop total cost, the computer is delivered.
