OUR STORY

 
Arman photo.jpg

The Arman Roy Foundation was established June 2019 in honor of Arman Roy, who tragically passed away on April 9, 2019. Arman was always smiling, had a selfless way of helping others, and an extraordinary gift for technology that he loved to share with everyone. Even before he could tie his shoelaces, Arman mastered it all effortlessly…computers, drones, virtual reality, solar panels, robotics, programming, bitcoin, blockchain, and smart everything! He also realized how fortunate he was to access the wonder, adventure, and opportunity of technology. In 2017, he read an article highlighting that 70% of Detroit’s school aged children had no internet, and how local community organizations were solving the problem by installing high speed internet that beamed shared gigabit connections into the neighborhood homes. He knew this could be done anywhere – and said “Dad this is the kind of work I want to do”. In Hindi, Arman’s name means HOPE.. and his bright, beautiful spirit lives on in the work we are inspired to do through the Arman Roy Foundation, a charity dedicated to giving the gift of technology to youth who need our help to create a more hopeful future.

17 % of US teenagers report they are often unable to complete homework due to a lack of a reliable internet connection or computer.

Today there are over 600K open computing jobs nationwide. In 10 years, over 50% of all US jobs are expected to be computerized. 

Youth who do not have access to learn the technology skills that are needed for future jobs will be left behind.
