Let’s get next-gen technology in the hands of the next generation.

Katherine Stuart Faulconer, Honorary Chair, One San Diego

“Imagine showing up to work and your computer has vanished. Your boss expects you to complete your assignments, but without an Internet connection you’re going to fall behind,” says Faulconer, wife of Mayor Kevin Faulconer. “This is the reality for many San Diego children in struggling communities who don’t have the technology at home they need to do homework and keep up in class.” Faulconer wants to fix that. In its first year of operation, the nonprofit One San Diego provided more than 100 laptops for kids to use in libraries in Logan Heights, Southeastern San Diego, San Ysidro, and Linda Vista, courtesy of local organizations and businesses like the San Diego Library Foundation, Cox Communications, Wal-Mart, and Hewlett-Packard. “Imagine a city where everyone has the opportunity to succeed, no matter which neighborhood they call home.”
