On the 2nd of March the Mobile Telecentre had its final activity, with the graduation the participants from the computer courses which took place within partner NGOs in the earthquake and tsunami affected areas.  This graduation was very special for it took place within a School for Children with special needs, with the participation of a representative of Global Giving as well as from the Canadian Embassy in Chile.

The impact of the project can be summarized in: 

Over 1.000 beneficiaries during the first three weeks after the earthquake and tsunami, giving access to communication and basic IT services to affected communities, military and NGOs giving aid to these communities such as Red Cross and Hogar de Cristo.

5 NGOs and over 300 course participants benefited from the second stage of the mobile telecentre.  The 300 participants gained computer skills to improve their employ-ability as well as for their use in their current jobs and micro companies.  Each NGO also received a computer for their office at the end of the project.

We want to thank each one that contributed with a donation to make this second stage of the mobile telecentre possible as well as Global Giving for making this platform available and for visiting us in March.

All our best from Chile.
