Pencils, paper and crayons? No, this year’s most important back-to-school supply is a computer. In education, technology can be a life-changer, a game changer, for kids who are both in school and pout of school.
The age of distance learning is here. Schools have incorporating online education into their offerings, and many teachers are using the Internet and the latest learning tools to create a curriculum that inspires students no matter where they live. Schools all over the world are also offering distance learning as an option for students with emergency circumstances so that everyone can keep up with their coursework.
After a scramble when covid-19 first shut classrooms in the spring, many school districts have designed this fall’s education around laptops and tablets. That, of course, presumes parents can get the right device, prevent it from breaking, keep the WiFi running and ensure their kids aren’t just goofing off online. And with the current economy, many families can’t afford a pricey new laptop or broadband connection. The alarming need, which can lead to students starting the school year at a disadvantage, has led the Homes for Children Corporation to step up and fill the shortage. So far, we have been able to provide over 200 brand new laptops and over 50 tablets to students in need. However, there are still many students who are without laptops for tablets. Many of our students have been using their cell phones to attend classes. Cell phones does not allow the students to fully engage in their classwork and makes it even hardet to complete assignments.
We need your support to fulfill the few remaining request for laptops. Would you consider donating a laptop or donating $100 toward a new laptop to help us achieve our mission?
If you have any questions, we would be happy to provide you with more information about how you can help support our work at The Homes for Children Corporation.
We greatly appreciate your donation, and it will be used to purchase laptops and tablets for students for those students who are still without a laptop or borrowing one from their schools.
Please join us! With your donation, we’re one step closer to reaching our goal!
