Education is a human right that should be given to any child or person. Unfortunately many people all over the world cannot benefit from education and do not have the resources that they need. With this is mind we want to unite collaborators for a project and let their passion for education drive. Our mission is to provide students the technology they need to improve their access to educational resources and tools needed to be successful in an increasingly digital world.
For my project, my group is working to raise money to provide laptops for the school Doctor Pedro Joaquin Chamorro, located in Rivas, Nicaragua. The laptops are delivered in boxes of five, with each box costing $1250. This has been done in coordination with the non-profit organization One Laptop Per Child. In order to raise money, we have been reaching out to multiple educational organizations throughout the United States who are willing to make donations.
I am very pleased with the progress my group has made, consisting of students from my school and from Norway! I will be leaving to meet with the Norwegian students in Norway on March 30.
Through projects like this, we are working to make Global Goal #4: Quality Education a reality!
