Challenge

This project will solve the problem of computer illiteracy for Dolly. Through providing this computer, Dolly will be able to learn how to use a computer extensively and benefit from computer training sessions and software.

Solution

Funds will be used to purchase, install training software and ship it to Freetown. This project will provide direct access to a computer for use by Dolly.

Long-Term Impact

We have proven over the years that providing access to computers and training revolutionizes the lives of youths and opens them up to new opportunities. Technology training effectively broadens their options. This is the impact that this project will achieve in Dolly's life - providing computer proficiency - a crucial key for success in today's technology-dependent society.
