Most recently TAP, in partnership with Kiwanis Club (Roger Larsen), delivered 93 refurbished computer systems to an underserved school in East Kentucky. Some 11% of the students in the school are homeless and about 75% of the students live below the poverty line and are on the Federal School Lunch Program. These donated systems represent 93 impoverished families now with access to the internet, where the children can compete with their peers and have a chance to break out of the poverty cycle.
