We focus on solving some of these problems from the ground up.
We start by identifying schools that serve underprivileged, rural communities. Once we decide to partner with a school, we work closely with administrators to verify enrollment and prioritize needs.
Our primary goal is to meet the most basic needs of every student. To that end we secure a school supplies to last each student an entire year. We provide notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, erasers, a sharpener, erasers, crayons, colored pencils, and a 12” wood ruler – all free of charge.
Other needs that we regularly meet include clean water filtration systems, student desks, teacher desks, dry erase boards, student backpacks, and teacher materials such as guides, workbooks and other resources.
As we head into the 2018 school year, we will be delivering our first set of classroom PCs at our pilot school in Veracruz, Honduras. While computer labs can be found at large, urban schools, they are not common in smaller communities…another example of the educational divide these schools experience.
