Implementation Going well in Egypt

Dear Supporters,

Thanks to your generosity, the Technology for Education Fund has helped CARE Egypt deploy 500 classmate PCs by purchasing 20 mobile charging carts, 20 teacher laptops, and providing technology training for over 100 teachers across 20 schools. Five Intel volunteers, working as part of the Intel Education Service Corps, traveled to Egypt in December 2009 to help install the PCs and provide the teacher training. Susan Faulkner wrote about it in a recent blog post, the link for which you can see below:

"I got to know the positive spirit of Egyptians working as part of a team of five Intel Education Service Corps volunteers. We have completed the field work phase in Egypt of a two-month service program. Max Alt, Dina Ghobashy, Ali Rabbani, Leroy Tripette and I worked with our partner NGO (non-governmental organization), CARE Egypt, for a little over two weeks in rural villages deploying 500 Intel-powered classmate PCs in 20 schools. The Intel-powered classmate PCs had been donated to Egypt’s Ministry of Education, and the Ministry generously allocated them to CARE for this program. These classmate PCs (CMPCs) will benefit 13,000 students, over 56% of whom are girls. CARE places special emphasis on investing in girls because their empowerment benefits whole communities."

With your continued support, CARE is preparing to launch a similar project in India, where it will be able to further promote the effective use of technology in education.

Thanks, as always, and we'll be back in touch with an update on India in the months ahead.

Best regards,

The Technology for Education Fund
