A North Texas teenager is making technology more accessible for children in need.

Vijay Manohar revives used computers and then donates them to families who do not have one, changing lives one computer at a time.

Jazmine Machuca, 9, is one of the Borman Elementary School students to receive a free computer.

"When I grow up, I want to be a writer," Machuca said. "Right now, I'm just practicing writing on a computer."

Machuca's dreams are big, but they're in reach thanks to technology that is now at her fingertips.

"We were just shocked," Machuca said. "We were shocked that it was really true. We really didn't know that we would have such an amazing person that would let us have a computer."

Manohar noticed the need for computers in his community. The 17-year-old TAMS student and his cousin, Raja Manohar, created the nonprofit group PCs2Prosper. They fix donated computers and give them to deserving families.

"Computers can help with homework and learning. It just aids the process of education," Manohar said.
