The Micro:bit Foundation is a non-profit organization. Its sponsorship scheme donates and ships micro:bits, for free, to support schools and youth programs all around the world. These people are doing great work in their local communities. From poverty stricken rural communities in Sri Lanka, to disadvantaged teens in Canada, to the entire school population of Ascension Island. Our sponsorship program has already reached many thousands of children; our target is to reach tens of thousands by the end of 2017.
Now you can help too! For every micro:bit you buy from the Micro:bit Give Shop, a school or youth program needing support will receive a microbit! For example, when you purchase a MICRO:BIT BUY 1 GIVE 1, we will ship one micro:bit to you and add another one to our school and youth sponsorship program. See the micro:bit reseller page for more ways to buy micro:bit, kits and accessories.
