Basic English and computer literacy are essential skills for college acceptance and long-term employment success. Unfortunately, access to these basic skills is still a luxury in many parts of India. Ann Foundation is raising funds to purchase computers for disadvantaged girls in India. This is our biggest project and we urgently need the computers so we can begin improving computer literacy for the girls and building them up for future success!
Numerous studies have shown that well-educated youths are critical to a well performing society. Better education in English and computer literacy are foundational to future college education and employment opportunities. Unfortunately, prevailing poverty and lack of resources often hinder the growth potential of disadvantaged yet motivated children from around the world. Every dollar donated towards these children will have a profound impact on their future lives.
Ann Foundation seeks to break down barriers to access by providing english education and computer literacy classes to the less privileged youth. Specifically, we offer online english classes with the support of remote volunteers from around the world, who are registered with UN volunteering. On-site project coordinators keep track of the project logistics and structure tailored curriculum plans to ensure classes are beneficial to the local population.
Children trained with spoken English and computer literacy stands better chance at securing employment and pursuing higher studies. This in turn can break the vicious circle of poverty for both the children and their family. Seeing a smile on their faces at the end of the day makes our effort totally worth it.
