Among the people who are deemed most in need of computers are the disabled. They have limited opportunities when it comes to doing different tasks, and they usually need the help of other’s assistance. However, more and more physically impaired persons would like to be self-productive, and because of this certain groups and organizations try to help by giving away tools such as computers. Programs are now made to provide free laptops for disabled people, so that they can start working on jobs and doing other activities just like those who are physically fit.
One of the organizations that help give free laptops for disabled people is UK’s Computers for the Disabled charity foundation. The group is active in soliciting computers from donors, other organizations as well as companies in order to give to physically impaired children in the country. The United States has a similar organization in the name of Laptops 4 Kids, which in turn give free computers to kids suffering from various physical disabilities such as paraplegia, visual impairment, hearing loss, etc.
Having a free laptop can help disabled people in various ways. They can not only work on online jobs but as well enjoy other activities such as playing games and communicating with others through chat and email. They can also continue working wherever they may be since they can bring their laptops with them, thus enjoy both their online jobs and the different sceneries at the same time. Disabled children meanwhile would have good alternative when it comes to education, as they can enjoy the benefits of learning through online classes and activities. They also get to be as interactive as their healthy peers, by playing online games and collaborative work. By means of laptops, they get to build their confidence and find ways to be productive without the help of others.
