Since our last report there have been no updates to this project as our focus, and the focus of our supporters, has been on the impact of Covid and the current Mynanmar/Burma crisis. Understabably new computers has taken a back seat in terms of priorty for everyone concerned.
With the situation changing, and for many improving, we will leave this project open until the next report is due in September in the hopes that we might be able to collectively get closer to our funding target.
If you are in a position to and believe in the importance of education for marginalised communities we would love for you to consider donating and/or donating again!
Thank you so much for your support for our Computers for Refugee Children project! We know it's a difficult time for so many and so are extra grateful for your contribution.
We have some good news (we could all do with more of that, right?!) Since the start of this project we have topped up the funds raised collectively by you from our general funding pot so that the community could already buy a few computers! This has enabled the camp leadership to stay on top of the community admin, teachers to have the means to preprare for their lessons and students to be able to get the most out of their computer classes and connect to the big wide world via the internet. We still have half of the funding goal to reach so that the Koung Jor community can get the remaining computers, software and cables they need but are delighted that we have already been able to make a tangible difference in the day-to-day lives of the teachers and students. We've attached a few photos to this report for you to see what your donation/s have helped achieve. THANK YOU!!
I'm sure most of you will have heard of the latest news from Myanmar/Burma and feel so sad for our friends and colleagues who are affected. We are remaining in close contact with the communities we work with and will help out where ever we can when enevitably communities and organisations will need additional support.
