For those of us that still dosen’t get the idea of digital divide this is how wikipedia defines it (digital divide refers to the gap between people with effective access to digital and information technology, and those with very limited or no access at all. It includes the imbalance both in physical access to technology and the resources and skills needed to effectively participate as a digital citizen. knowledge divide, both reflecting the access of various social groupings to information and knowledge, typically gender, income, race, and by location. The term global digital divide refers to differences in access between countries.)

The mission of CAP Inc. is to reach those elements of society that may not have the opportunity to benefit from the technology that many of us take for granted.

" according to their website. Cap has help many differnt people around Clevland and they wish to expand more and get more people on board with their plan.
