Summary

150 young people who come from the most remote and extremely poor communities in Guatemala are currently studying at the boarding school of the Santiago Institute. They will be the leaders of their community upon graduation. We will approach technology through the update of their computer equipment. How? Providing at least 10 new computers that will be as fast as their desire to learn. Lets connect them with the rest of the world. Donate a Happy Click and transform their futures.

Challenge

The Santiago Institute serves each year hundreds of indigenous youth from the most underprivileged villages of Guatemala. Given the condition of poverty and exclusion of their families, often the first contact of students with a computer has been in the Institute. The resources of the Institute are prioritized to guarantee an integral education and the physical and emotional well-being of the students; therefore, the funds to renew the computer lab equipment are lacking.

Solution

With the purchase of new computers, the Santiago Institute will have more tools for young people to improve their learning and this will allow them to acquire better skills and abilities. This way, it will be more feasible for young people to achieve their dreams, to open up to the world to a global vision increasing their development alternatives, and to contribute to the transformation of their families and communities.

Long-Term Impact

An improved computer lab to serve annually 150 indigenous students who receive at least 2 hours of computing a week, which allows them a better training process that impacts their present and transforms their future.
