Education in Sierra Leone has its challenges. Unfortunately, gaining a proper education is most challenging for impoverished or underprivileged families in Sierra Leone. The quality of education that children receive is affected to a very large degree by the supporting environment. This environment includes access to essential learning materials like books and school supplies. A supportive environment also includes access to technology. Technology is important in education because we live in a technology-driven and technology-aided world. Computers are an essential part of the information age. And, technical competence is necessary to be competitive in today's job market.
Fortunately, Develop Africa has nurtured a great relationship with a donor who refurbishes computers, tablets, and laptops. This donor is able to provide Develop Africa recurring donations of the refurbished computers, tablets, and laptops so that we can send them to Sierra Leone to be used in schools there to help children and youth learn how to use them.
We're excited to get our newest shipment of tablets and laptops. After an initial check to make sure everything is in working order, they'll be ready to be shipped to Sierra Leone. There, our team will receive them and distribute them appropriately. As computers are in high demand, every chance to offer the opportunity of technology is a gift.
Once in the hands of students, the world of computer technology will open up for them. And, having the world's information available to you is very powerful. This will mean that benefiting students will be more eligible for jobs that require computer experience. The rippling effect will reduce their chances of poverty or undesirable life paths.
We're thrilled about the opportunity to offer computers to students in Sierra Leone. And, we celebrate this and every donation of computers.
