Summary

In order to ensure that all of our student beneficiaries have access to online learning and have the opportunity to develop digital skills, we are raising money to purchase laptops we will then distribute to the schools where our Fellows serve (Teach For Lebanon Fellows serve as teachers and leaders in underprivileged school communities).

Challenge

~10% (500 out of 5000) of our student beneficiaries don't own devices with which to access online learning. This revealed itself as a problem most acutely when COVID-19 forced Lebanese schools to shut their doors and students without the means to attend online classes were left stranded. But even without the backdrop of the pandemic, digital skills are essential in order to navigate the modern world. Students should be taught these skills in school, and they should be able to hone them at home.

Solution

The money we raise here will be used to purchase 500 laptops ($350/laptop + $3 for transportation) and to distribute these to schools where our Fellows are serving underprivileged children. The devices will be used in computer lab settings; made available to students for homework, research, and project-based learning; and, should a catastrophe like COVID-19 shut the doors of Lebanese schools again, loaned out to our students on a semi-permanent basis so that they may attend online classes.

Long-Term Impact

These devices will have benefits both in the near and long term: they will allow our students to access the education they need now; and this education will provide our students with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to ensure a better future for themselves and for Lebanon.
