<strong>Jersey City, N.J. &mdash; March 6</strong><br />Comodo, a global certification authority and provider of Identity and Trust Assurance Management solutions, announced it has begun awarding grants to schools in lower-income communities dedicated to providing technology enrichment learning opportunities for these children. Importantly, this initiative is meant to help foster broader understanding within school-age children of key technologies related to computers and the Internet.<br /><br />This new initiative is consistent with Comodo&#39;s dedication to empowering consumers with tools and technology to enable them to fully reap the benefits that the Internet offers. "Comodo&#39;s commitment to giving back is deeply ingrained in our culture." said Beverley Daynes, vice president of finance at Comodo. "We spend considerable resources providing free, award-winning desktop security to end users, and we are proud to continue our tradition by expanding our support to empower children to be technologically literate." <br /><br />The first school to be granted an award was the Eighteenth Avenue Elementary School of Science and Technology in Newark, N.J. This grant supports a special needs program among second- and third-graders to help accelerate their use of computers for learning. Comodo is planning on expanding this program to include technology, hardware and other potential services related to authentication to reduce children&#39;s exposure to online predators.<br /><br />Grant recipients will be chosen by the Comodo Grant Review Committee that is comprised of Comodo employees with diverse backgrounds and range from individual contributors to management-level employees. Interested not-for-profit organizations can contact Comodo directly. <br />
