As we are now approaching the end of 2018, it’s a perfect moment for us to raise some funds and set up a computer lab.
Most of our students have never had any contact with computers: they've never played computer games or used Skype, or email, or Google! If we can make this happen for them, it'll be an amazing achievement and could even open up doors to better schools and jobs in the future. The world is a global village and our students need to be computer literate in order to fully benefit from what it offers.
We have quite a modest goal of buying 3 computers to start with. Any extra money raised here will also help us organise three workshops in the coming two months: basic computer skills, sustainable goals for our community, and menstrual awareness for girls. The more we raise, the more we will be able to do.
We understand that money can be tight, but please remember that even £5 means a lot to us. And if you can't contribute this time, perhaps you know someone who might or you can support us by "donating" some words of encouragement on our Facebook Page!
All who donate will receive a personalised thank you gift and an update directly from our students.
I am personally making sure that 100% of what you give is what the school gets and uses for this particular project.
