About Us

Puente is a unique global community service initiative joined by over thirty students at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. Puente (Spanish for bridge) is a non-profit student organization that seeks to "bridge" the technology gap in low-income areas throughout the world by enabling all persons to gain access to computers and the Internet. Since its inception in 1999, Puente has established technology centers in such places as West Philadelphia, Quito, Ecuador and Pune, India.
