This microproject will make it possible for B.M. and her sister D.M. to continue their high school educations. Because of the pandemic in Bolivia, all schools are closed and classes are now online. Both girls would like to finish high school, but they cannot afford the cost of credit for their cellphone to receive their assignments and send in their homework. We would like to pay the cost of the internet connection by purchasing prepaid phone cards for them and so keep them in school.
Both D.M. and B. M are good students and want to finish their school year which goes until November. The girls' parents were in a serious road accident recently and cannot work, making it impossible for them to buy food for the family and finance credit for the girls' cellphone to receive and send homework during the strict quarantine in Bolivia due to the Coronavirus.
Helping Hands would like to provide the credit necessary for the girls to operate their cellphones in order to receive their assignments and send in their homework each day. The cost per month is approximately $ 36 to keep the girls connected and they will need support for 7 months. This way the girls can continue their educations and stay in school.
Unfortunately in the countryside, boys are given the advantage over girls when it comes to investing the few resources available, but the education of girls is especially important for their future well-being and that of their children to come. With a high school education, B.M. and D.M. will have the tools they need to better provide for their children or to continue on to higher education and have a profession.
