The Federal Association for the Advancement of Visible Minorities (FAAVM) is a community-driven organization, supported by your membership fees, donors, and sponsors. Our most important activities center on cultivating and strengthening the field of digital humanities and providing guidance and support to those entering the field. Our goal is to create a more diverse, cohesive, and vibrant community for digital humanists, and to help advance digital humanities research, technology, and best practice.
We impact communities on two fronts, and you can be a part of our expanding mission. Support local charities through the donation of old electronics, and help the environment at the same time. The CFH Program also expands its refurbished device offerings to include not only desktop computers but laptops, tablets, and smartphones, reducing the environmental impact of electronic waste
Connectivity is now as important as roads and bridges to the sustainability of the world’s economy. The Computers for Humanity (CFH) Program is a national and international partnership and sponsorship-based program that works around the world to provide the opportunity to disadvantaged communities and underprivileged persons to access the digital world
The Computers for Humanity (CFH) Program works with affiliates, sponsors and partners located around the world to refurbish surplus computers, related books, and other digital devices donated by public, governments, and private sectors, and provide them to schools, libraries, not-for-profit organizations, students, individuals, and families with affordable renewed computers, ready to use software and learning modules all in one package. The Computers for Humanity (CFH) Program is helping extend the useful life of devices and therefore, reducing the environmental impact of electronic waste.
