CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF CHANGING LIVES!

Students Bridging the Information Gap, Inc (SBIG) is a Summit, New Jersey-based non-governmental organization (NGO) that was founded in 2008 and has received its 501©(3) tax-exempt designation from the IRS.

SBIG harnesses the humanitarian interests of students, corporate and faith-based partners and other civic groups to support fellow students in Ghana by providing computers and related equipment for learning labs, age appropriate reading materials and other support to beneficiary organizations. SBIG has a diverse set of trustees and members, representing the private commercial and non-profit sectors, students and their parents, and U.S. and overseas-based partners.

Focus:

We understand that technology and literary skills are critical to any student’s education in our world today. As a result, a particular area of interest to SBIG is provision of computers for learning labs, age appropriate reading material and other related assistance.

Procedure:

An orphanage or school is selected based on a Needs Assessment of criteria such as physical plant/infrastructure, access to water and electricity, characteristics of the students and staff, reputation of the organization and other factors.

Goals:

Using the Needs Assessment, our team travels to a specific orphanage in Africa and provides assistance in funding and developing computer labs and training, as well as libraries.
