A Giant Step Towards Educational Success

A Giant Step Towards Educational Success



The Education Committee  of The Community Action Alliance is delighted to announce  the donation of 10 new  Dell Laptop computers to our Beca (Scholarship) students.  When student volunteers and their chaperones from a Texas youth organization visited us recently in San Ramon, Costa Rica, each of the volunteers carried one of the computers in their backpacks.   And now, these computers are ready for distribution to 10 fortunate  Beca students thanks to Noelia, our social work intern and Alisson, her mentor, who spent many hours deciding who among our students had the necessary Wifi and motivation to learn this new - to them - form of technology.  Most of these students have never used a computer so to aid them in learning this new tool, University of Costa Rica’s Technology Department  is donating staff members who will spend 5 Saturday mornings teaching these students basic computing skills.  A volunteer from Community Action Alliance  was instrumental in finding a very competent computer technician who spent many hours reconfiguring the computers into the Spanish language and 2 other dedicated CAA volunteers donated their time making sure that their work spaces would contain the necessary apps, folders, images, setting, etc. that the students would need to be successful. It was definitely a group effort on the part of the Education Committee and our high school students will benefit immensely from this effort.  Thanks to everyone for all the help and for the efforts of these young people and CAA volunteers     We continue to be thankful for the support and generosity of organizations such as GlobalGiving which provides such  tremendous help to our Costa Rican scholarship students!
