Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your generosity towards the Technology for Education Fund! The Fund has gotten off to a successful start, with the first $50,000 donated by Intel supporting a new program through CARE Egypt. CARE will be implementing computer carts with 500 Intel-powered classmate PCs in twenty schools, which will be used for classroom instruction and after school extra-curricular activities, reaching roughly 13,000 students in total, more than half of whom are girls. Additional funds raised will allow CARE to expand this project and launch similar efforts in other developing countries around the world.

And as of this week, donations to the Technology for Education Fund will be generously matched dollar-for-dollar by Intel up to $15,000 (through December 31, 2009 or until funds are depleted). Donations in this time period will benefit additional projects by CARE, the details of which are being finalized right now. The additional funds will be also be used to enhance the quality of education in developing countries with the use of technology. Stay tuned for further updates on how and in what location these funds will be used.

Thanks again for all your support!
