eOpportunity: the intersection of economic opportunity and technology
ZeroDivide’s eOpportunity work brings 21st century educational and workforce opportunities to underserved communities through the innovative use of technology. We believe that when we enable people to step across the digital divide, they can harness the tools and resources they need to succeed in school, at work and in their civic lives—stopping the cycle of poverty.
We have invested in and work with five California-based nonprofits that are operating social enterprises—commercial businesses with socially responsible objectives—to grow their competencies around sustaining programs with dual outcomes: viable revenue streams for their business and increased economic opportunities for their constituents. We do this by providing services that help organizations improve their income potential while equipping program participants with relevant technology skills, financial literacy and an improved sense of self worth.
