Are you in need of your own computer? Do you feel safe disclosing your personal and financial information on the internet? Are you comfortable teaching your children about internet safety?

Join SBPL and Partners in Education for an internet safety course and receive a free computer. The computer will be yours to keep for personal and professional use. It also serves as a perfect tool to support your children in their education.
