What is The HeliOS Project?

Filed under
Linux
Hardware

The HeliOS Project accepts broken or decommissioned computers, refurbishes them, then gives them to Central Texas kids that cannot afford them. Since 2005, The HeliOS Project has distributed 1329 computers to local area children.

HeliOS is a non profit organization with three directors and a volunteer pool that well exceeds 100 folks. We have built learning labs and community computer centers in several locations around Austin and have done the same for some of the smaller towns in our area. We have three directors that lead our project.
