“I don’t even know how to turn this thing on.”

It’s not unusual to hear comments like that from some of the people we work with at Oasis. They are just beginning to learn about the benefits of online activities. It might be hard to believe, but a recent study by Pew Research concluded that 33% of Americans don’t currently have internet at home.
