OUR IMPACT

TGH works with our partners to build a more equitable society in which all members of our communities have access to the digital world. We measure success by the digital life skills, computers, and internet access that graduates gain through participating in the TGH program, and the extent to which they feel empowered to apply those skills and tools to improve their lives in whatever way will benefit them most.
