Thank you so much for funding a computer lab for the girls! The skills they will learn are essential for continuing education and entering the work force - and you made it happen!
Cyrus Cooper is our after-school computer class teacher. As we prepare for the new More Than Me Academy to open in September, Cyrus is focused on teaching the girls important computer skills throughout the summer, and they've shown tremendous progress!
They've made great strides in Microsoft Word and they learned how to create invitations and images on the computer. Below is a photo of Eve Hammon's work - she made the Liberian flag! The girls enjoy learning so much and we are incredibly grateful to Cyrus for his dedication to teaching the girls.
Another amazing opportunity: Don't miss your chance to win a trip to Liberia! Join our Meet Her at the Finish Line campaign and you could get to visit the More Than Me Academy and meet the girls! Find out more on our blog.
Again, we thank you. We couldn't do any of this without you!
For the girls,
The More Than Me Team
P.S. Cyrus and the girls made it into GlobalGiving's photo contest this year! Voting ends this Wednesday, July 31st! Click here to vote for Cyrus and More Than Me!
