Helping students unlock their full potential

All students should have access to means through which they can succeed in school. For us, this means having access to the Internet, an ever-growing aspect of our world. However, as technology continues to improve, accessibility doesn't- which is why We Care Act has partnered with 4THBIN to provide underprivileged students in New York City with laptops to help accelerate their educations.

Why we do what we do

Founded by Bronx Science students, our mission statement is simple: to provide all underserved youth in New York City with the necessary resources to succeed. Initially focusing on education, our source of motivation stemmed from our observations of fellow peers and testimonials from students around New York City living in underprivileged neighborhoods and underfunded school districts.

Upon returning to school from the pandemic and remote learning, we noticed a considerable amount of students lag behind in their academics because they lacked access to online resources such as Google Classroom and Gmail, crucial programs to all students in our post-pandemic education systems. Combined with increasing issues of global warming, we modified our mission, seeking to bridge two vital aspects of our community- our environment and our peers' futures. By refurbishing and repurposing donated technology like laptops and e-readers from our recycling partner, 4THBIN, we are able to provide the next generation of leaders with sustainable means to achieve success.

We believe that education is a fundamental right, and everyone should have access to the same resources and learning advantages offered in our ever-increasingly technological world.
