My name is Benedikt Bächli, I am a diving instructor / social worker and Swiss Expat living and working in the Philippines as well I'm a father of 3 children attending school in the Philippines.
The schools in the Philippines have decided on implementing distance-learning for the coming school year due to the ongoing coronavirus threat.
One major issue is that uncountable households of the poor population do not have computers or laptops at home.
So we are now collecting old Laptops, Computers, Screens, Printers, or any PC components that we can use to give the many children and young people living on the poverty line in our immediate neighborhood (and hopefully beyond!) the necessary access to online learning.
The good news is that we found computer donors but we are not a big Foundation, we are just a neighborhood association.
So our problems are the shipping costs! So we're trying to collect some funds to finance a container with computers from Switzerland to here!
Have an amazing day!
