YES! YOU DID IT!
Late last year, we posted our first big project on DonorSee – a computer lab for Skills for Life. This $10,000 project was highly ambitious for us, and to be honest, it has been slow going.
WHY do we feel strongly about introducing digital literacy to our community?
Many of Uganda’s government services have moved online, such as National ID registration.
- Many good jobs require online applications, as well as basic computer skills.
- Having knowledge of digital applications like Microsoft’s Office Suite vastly broadens the kinds of jobs open to our girls.
- Digital literacy allows our girls to fully participate in civic life in their communities.
And NOW… thanks to two Roberts who each made a huge donation within 24 hours of each other…
For a whole year, including electricity, maintenance, and the teacher’s salary!
We are a small organization — small but mighty! For us, $10,000 is HUGE. And YOU made it happen!
We really can’t say THANK YOU enough! Webele nyo!
PS While we no longer have a big project up on DonorSee, we have plenty of small ones, from tailoring supplies to restocking the food for our daycare. 100% goes to the program — if you have any questions, just use the Contact screen and ask away!
