DESCRIPTION

The need for computers is imperative to the development of student's future. Access to a computer and the Internet helps students obtain innovative skills allowing them to use modern means to complete their homework assignments and open the doors of communication for opportunities all across the world. Many schools, children's centers, and orphanages are unable to provide access to computers and internet to their student's due to the high costs of obtaining the items and monthly charges associated with Internet usage.

We hope to be able to purchase and distribute computers to schools, children's centers and orphanages and give more and more students the opportunity to broaden their skills and abilities. Donations of new and used computers in excellent condition are also welcomed. Sponsorship of this project will include two computers and Internet connection for a year for each computer purchased (or donated) for the chosen location.

THE NEED

Unfortunately, due to the high cost of computers and the subsequent expenses obtaining Internet access, many schools, children's centers, and orphanages are unable to provide their students with this necessity. Hence, many students do not receive the same opportunities as others to excel in their studies and learn new technological skills that will positively impact their futures.

SHORT TERM IMPACT

Students at schools, children's centers and/or orphanages who do not have computers nor internet access will receive computers with internet access for their use.

LONG TERM IMPACT

In the long term, this project has the potential of impacting the lives of hundreds of students and help them gain computer skills that will create greater future opportunities, including career advancements.
