The reSource project has been developed by the Technology Learning Alliance (TLA), an offshoot of the Learning Support Council of Canada. The goal of TLA is to help provide computers and connectivity for those who normally cannot afford these, both in Canada and abroad. We are working on a variety of partnerships and strategic relationships that will allow us to set up low-income computer ownership plans along with low-cost Internet connectivity.
The Learning Support Council of Canada (LSC), a registered federal Canadian charitable organization, created the first computer refurbishing/recycling program in Canada called Technology for Learning (TLC) in Toronto and has delivered over 65,000 computers to schools, non-profit organizations and community agencies. LSC secured 25,000 software licenses from Microsoft, organized two Learning Summits, co-chaired a joint Technology Redeployment Summit at M.I.T. in Massachusetts and pioneered hands-on hardware/software training with the Scarborough Board of Education, among many other endeavours.
The reSource project is a campain to give new impetus to these objectives, focused directly on empowering individuals at home.
