Home-schooling has been part of every family this days but for some families has been extremely hard.
Many parents had to give their mobile phones in order for their kids to have access to the online platforms and their lessons.
We know it may seem crazy that a family doesn’t have one family laptop at least but this is reality. Not everyone can afford to pay for a laptop or even a tablet.
So, We come up with the idea to help our local school in Leros. Leros is a small island in Dodecanese, there are about 8,000 people living in the island. The income for the families comes mostly from Fishing and Agriculture which translates to perhaps €3,000-€6,000 income per year. I remember I got my first laptop when I was 17 in 2010 after working for the entire summer as my parents wouldn’t be able to afford it and my sisters were sharing one just during University.
I really hope with this initiative and with your help to be able to make at least few families happy.
Why are we doing this? We would like every kid to have same opportunity with a kid that lives in a more developed city even when their parents cannot afford it. We have been there and We know it can be hard as a kid and as a parent.
Why this school? Mostly because that was our first school. We assume that some of our ex classmates will have their kids attending the school now. We know from our heart those families and We would like to help. We would hope that this is just the start.
If you cannot donate, perhaps share this post with others that will mean a lot. If you know a company that doesn’t need their old laptops perhaps they will be able to donate them to the school.
