With the support from Google.org, NetHope is launching Project RECONNECT: an initiative providing 25,000 managed Chromebooks to nonprofit organizations supporting refugees in Germany.

Chromebooks are web-based laptops. And This is a Drawback of this computer. Users will have to have internet connection to get the best out of them, which means any charities that are using them will have to have a Web connection.

The application process begins with an expression of interest in the project, due by February 8, 2016. Distribution of the first round of Chromebooks begins on March 1, 2016. Second round applications are due by March 8, 2016.
